Manchester City are in dire need of defenders, with an aging back line, Pep Guardiola is on the lookout. According to the father of Monaco right-back Fabinho, Manchester City have been in touch.

The 23-year-old is enjoying a strong season at Monaco in which the French club currently top Ligue 1, and they are set to face Manchester City next week.

However, Pep Guardiola will face competition from a host of top English clubs as well as Barcelona if they are to sign the young Brazilian, however the club may feel confident due to having Fabinho’s compatriots Fernandinho, Fernando and Gabriel Jesus already within the ranks.

“We have been in talks with Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal & approached by Barcelona.
