Juventus will battle Manchester United for Monaco star Fabinho next summer, according to reports.
The versatile Brazilian was heavily linked with a move away from the French champions back in August, but he ended up staying put.
Fabinho, who plays in both right-back and defensive midfield roles for Monaco, is expected to leave at the end of this season after the World Cup in Russia.
And, according to Tuttosport, it will be Juventus and Manchester United fighting it out to try and sign the 24-year-old.
United have been tracking the Brazil international since the summer and manager Jose Mourinho is attracted by his ability to play in both defensive and midfield roles.
Juventus’ interest is more recent, but the Italian champions are reportedly very serious about putting together a strong bid in the summer.
