a manager is leaving, a top scorer is about to arrive!

If the transfer window has not officially started, AS Monaco is already active behind the scenes. This Saturday, the Principality club announced a major departure. In the opposite direction, a top scorer in Ligue 1 is expected in the coming weeks.

Brilliant runner-up to PSG this season in Ligue 1, AS Monaco is preparing for a summer transfer window full of dangers with several uncertainties. The first concerns the situation of Youssouf Fofana. A preponderant element in the Monaco midfield since 2020, the French international only has one year left on his contract. Enough to give ideas to AC Milan, very interested in his services. If there is still hope to keep the 25-year-old midfielder, this is no longer the case for Wissam Ben Yedder.

AS Monaco says goodbye to Wissam Ben Yedder

Indeed, AS Monaco formalized this Saturday the departure of its striker at the end of June. At the end of the contract, the striker and the Monegasque management did not reach an agreement to renew his lease in the Rock. “Everyone knows Wissam’s qualities, those of an exceptional striker, with an incredible sense of the game and goal. What he did on the pitch during these five seasons will remain in the history of the Club. We wish him the best for the future” ASM general director Thiago Scuro paid tribute to him in the press release sent for the club. Appearing 201 matches in the red and white colors, Ben Yedder scored 118 goals in all competitions. Which makes him the second top scorer in the club’s history.

Georges Mikautadze (FC Metz) tipped to replace him

To replace him, AS Monaco’s priority track leads to Georges Mikautadze (FC Metz). According to the latest indiscretions from RMC Sport, discussions have started between the Georgian’s clan and the second in Ligue 1. Author of 13 goals in 20 matches, the Lorraine striker is also on the shelves of OM and the Stade Rennes. But unlike its two rivals, Monaco will play in the next edition of the Champions League. A significant advantage in this matter.
