From ESPN - August 12, 2017

PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain could pay more than 60m to sign Monaco midfielder Fabinho, with teammate Kylian Mbappe also keen on a move to the Parc des Princes, sources have told ESPN FC.

Fabinho has been a PSG target since Antero Henrique arrived as sporting director in June.

Sources said Monaco were preparing for the possibility that both he and Mbappe could attempt to force moves if they cannot leave amicably.

PSG, meanwhile, remain hopeful that they could sign both before the end of the window.

A Monaco source said that, since last season, Fabinho has had a gentleman's agreement that he would be granted a move if a suitable offer arrived.

A Paris source said a bid of around 45 million had been tabled by PSG once Henrique arrived -- but he was then told he could not join them.

Both sources said Fabinho had been told he could go to a foreign club but wants to join PSG.
