Monaco will demand £75million next summer for Fabinho as they brace themselves for renewed interest from Europe’s biggest spenders, according to reports in France.

The Brazil international was coveted by both Manchester clubs during the close season but appeared to be on the verge of joining Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain before the Ligue 1 champions dug their heels in.

Monaco allowed Mbappe, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko to depart but managed to keep hold of the Brazil international as well as Thomas Lemar, who Arsenal had earmarked as their potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

Le10 Sport claim PSG will return at the end of the season and make a fresh bid, while Manchester City are likely to show interest again with Pep Guardiola already having pinpointed central midfield as an area that is likely to need reinforcing.

Jose Mourinho had targeted the former Real Madrid youngster but United were unable to broker a deal and eventually managed to sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea in a £40m deal.
