Manchester United have opened talks with AS Monaco for Fabinho.
The 23-year-old, who can play as a right-back or a centre midfielder, impressed for Monaco last season as they beat Paris St-Germain to the Ligue 1 title.
PSG have also registered interest in Fabinho but Monaco are reluctant to sell to their rivals.
The Ligue 1 giants made a £39m (€45m) offer for the Brazil international but it was rebuffed.
And Corriere dello Sport says United are in talks to land Fabinho.
