The father of Monaco fullback Fabinho claims Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been in contact regarding a summer move, per Metro.

Since making his debut in 2015, Fabinho has scored 11 goals in 50 games for Monaco, but is expected to leave the club in the next transfer window.

According to his father, the Brazil international is a wanted man, but he could favour a move to join up with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Joao told J+1: “We have been in talks with Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and approached by Barcelona.

“We like Manchester United and [Jose] Mourinho’s work, but we have a soft spot for Manchester City.”
