The defensive midfielder has been one of Monaco’s best players this season and played both games when they defeated City over two legs in the Champions League knockout stages.

The Brazilian can play a multitude of positions including right-back, so he is another alternative option in that position.

He would provide the stability needed in City’s midfield that has been affected by injuries and suspensions all season.

Alternative signing: Dele Alli (Tottenham) – Although a more attacking player than Fabinho, Alli would be a player that would count as a home grown player, although he would most likely come at a huge cost.
