Monaco has been playing hard balls with both Manchester clubs since they showed interest in signing the midfielder.
since the Brazilian switched from right-back to a more central role, his displays have also caught the eye of City boss Guardiola.
Monaco has a good relationship with both Manchester clubs.
Manchester City was able to sign Benardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy from the French Champions last summer while Antonio Martial was sold to Manchester City.
