AS Monaco has strengthened offensively with the arrivals of Takumi Minamino and Breel Embolo. But there are still several projects for sports director Paul Mitchell. In addition to the potential replacement of Aurélien Tchouaméni, gone to Real Madrid, he wishes to strengthen his defensive sector with a central.
According to our information, he found his happiness with Malang Sarr. Indeed, the Monegasque club is currently pushing very hard to recover the 23-year-old French defender. Sources close to Chelsea tell us that despite fierce competition from Fulham, he could land on the Rock on loan with an option to buy.
Back on the Côte d’Azur
The transfer would therefore be on the right track and AS Monaco could rely on Badiashile, Maripan, Disasi and Sarr for the coming season. The Principality club is also involved in the Champions League this evening, for the third preliminary round against PSV, and hopes to reach the play-offs, for which the draw has already been made.
Malang Sarr would return to his side in France after his spell at Chelsea. Loaned to FC Porto in 2020-2021, he had started 6 times in the Premier League with the Blues last season. By joining Monaco, he would also find the Côte d’Azur which he knows well since it was with OGC Nice that he had revealed himself, under the direction of Lucien Favre during his first spell with the Aiglons.
