Monaco have named their price for a Man Utd, Juventus and PSG transfer target, while Real Madrid have allocated £180m to spend in January, with two of five players in their sights, according to Thursday’s European papers.
MONACO TELL JUVENTUS, PSG, MAN UTD PRICE FOR FABINHO
Fabinho could be allowed to leave Monaco in January after the Brazilian midfielder once again expressed a desire to leave the defending Ligue 1 champions.
The player was heavily linked with both Manchester United and PSG this summer, but he eventually stayed put with Monaco instead cashing in on the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva and Ben Mendy.
Juventus, meanwhile, are the latest club to be linked with Fabinho and Italian publication Calciomercato claim Monaco have slapped a €60m price tag on the player.
United look unlikely to pursue the deal given their capture of Nemanja Matic and the form of Antonio Valencia at right-back, which will leave Juve and PSG to battle it out over his signature.
