Manchester City won’t sign Monaco star, player in ‘advanced talks’ with Manchester United

According to journalist Gerard Romero, Fabinho will not sign for Manchester City this summer despite being linked with a move.

Reports of the Monaco player joining Manchester City have simmered down in recent days as it appeared City cooled their interest amid talk that he is in advanced talks for a move to neighbours Manchester United.

Gerard Romero posted a tweet which translates to “Fabinho will not joing City”.

Marca report that there has been a ‘remarkable advance’ in talks for a move to Manchester United in recent days and it now appears that City are ready to officially rule themselves out of the race, despite previously being close to a deal.

However, City are said to be pressing ahead on higher priority targets, such as Fabinho’s teammate Benjamin Mendy, Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand, Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker and Juventus left-back Alex Sandro – if Manchester City are to land all those targets, then there simply wouldn’t be enough room for Fabinho in Pep Guardiola’s plans for the 2017/18 campaign.
