AS Monaco’s Vice-President, Vadim Vasilyev has told supporters that despite attempts by big European clubs to sign some of its players in the last few days of the transfer window, the soccer club has successfully chosen to keep all of the key players in its squad.
“We have merely allowed certain players to leave on loan in order to further their development. Consequently, I declare AS Monaco’s transfer business finished. I believe in our team and am convinced that we are set for a great season. More than ever, we will need your support.”
On transfer deadline day Wednesday, Monaco received a huge bid from a Manchester club for a teenager who is still pretty much unknown. Following Manchester United’s purchase of Anthony Martial last year, this time around it was Manchester City making the extraordinary bid for 17-year-old Kylian Mbappe, according to 101greatgoals.com.
L’Equipe reported that Monaco rejected a €40 million offer from the Premier League giants. The attacker broke into the first-team last season and became the club’s youngest-ever goal scorer.
