Manchester City & Manchester United Target: This Is My Last Season With Monaco
A player who was heavily linked with Manchester City and Manchester United at the beginning of the campaign has stated that this could be his last season with Monaco.
Versatile Brazil international Fabinho was expected to leave the club during the July-August window, but the Ligue 1 champions decided to block any potential move as they had already lost the likes of Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy and Kylian Mbappe.
The 24-year-old, who has not shown the same form as he did in 2016/17, was recently asked whether or not he had any objections to leaving the French club and if he had offers from other clubs.
"I don't think so (regarding a January departure)," Fabinho answered, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
"I've had no contact (from other clubs), and I'm secure at Monaco. (But) Ordinarily, it's my last season at Monaco. Nothing is signed.
"During the (close season) transfer window, and even a month afterwards, it was a little difficult to live with the situation. But I don't think about it anymore, I've turned the page."
The Brazilian's current contract expires in 2021 only, and he is valued at €25 million (R399 million), according to Transfermarkt.
Fabinho has made 23 appearances for Monaco so far this season, scoring two goals and assisting one further strike.
