Manchester United target Fabinho has admitted his time at Monaco is over and is ready to depart the reigning Ligue 1 champions.

The 24-year-old expressed a desire to join United last summer but a deal never materialised and he remained at Monaco during the mass exodus of Leonardo Jardim's title-winning team.

However, he has now revealed his time in the south of France is over and would be keen to explore a move elsewhere.

'If the right move comes up, perhaps a change in league or to a club with a bigger structure and higher ambitions, I would love that,' he told Lance!.

'My time at Monaco has been great, I managed to win a title, now I believe my time here might be coming to an end.

'I know that the club's goal is to take second place [in Ligue 1] and earn a spot in the Champions League, not to sign big-name players but rather youngsters to give them their start.

'I believe that I have been through that, I came here as a nobody, made my name in the club, achieved things; so maybe I need something new, a new challenge.'

Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko all left Monaco in the summer and their title challenge has struggled, finding themselves 13 points behind Paris Saint-Germain.

Fabinho has been at Monaco since 2013, though his first two seasons in the principality were spent on loan from Brazilian outfit Rio Ave. 

He has made over 200 appearances in those five years, scoring 24 goals.
