Cited by TalkSport, RaiSport state that Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini wants to bring 21-year-old Brazilian full-back Fabinho to the San Siro; where he would join former team-mate Geoffrey Kondogbia, who signed for the Serie A leaders in the summer.
Earlier this summer it was stated Manchester United were keen to sign the £20m-rated defender, whilst reports in France stated around the same time that City were in talks to bring the Brazilian to the Etihad before a £15m move collapsed.
Louis Van Gaal requires a full-back addition due to a lack of numbers on the left-side of defence, with Luke Shaw sidelined for months with a broken leg whilst his cover, Marcos Rojo, also recently picked up an issue.
Inter Milan have been away from the European eye for a while as they battled with financial troubles and fell down the Serie A table but have returned to greatness this season, currently joint-top of the table alongside Fiorentina.
