Manchester City are reportedly set to enter a bidding war with bitter rivals Manchester United over AS Monaco right-back Fabinho. According to Claire Bloomfield of the Sun, City manager Pep Guardiola is determined to bring four new full-backs to the Etihad Stadium, starting with the highly rated Brazilian. Bloomfield wrote that Fabinho has been on Manchester United’s radar for some time and that a bidding showdown with Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is likely to ensue. In fact, United reportedly came close to bringing the 22-year-old to Old Trafford in the summer; it was only when a deal to offload Matteo Darmian fell through that the transfer went cold. City will be hoping for much better fortunes
Lacina Traore failed to build on his impressive form from midweek as his side fell 1-0 to Lokomotiv Moscow in the derby on Sunday. The Ivorian scored against parent club Monaco in the Champions League on Tuesday but could not reprise that showing against CSKA’s bitter city rivals at the Stadion Lokomotiv. This defeat leaves defending champions CSKA four points behind leaders Spartak who won 1-0 away at Ural on Saturday.
