Ismaël Koné with Watford FC?

It was ultimately with Watford FC, in the English second division, that CF Montreal midfielder Ismaël Koné would continue his career.

This is what the renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano argued on Sunday. This transfer should be the most lucrative in the history of the Montreal eleven. For the moment, the two clubs have not confirmed the information.

The 20-year-old Koné has quickly become a fixture in Montreal, having played in his first 26 career games in 2022. He scored two goals and had five assists. He was also selected to represent Canada at the World Cup, having played in nine Maple Leaf games since the start of the season.

It will certainly be a heavy loss for CF Montreal, who also lost Djordje Mihailovic and Alistair Johnston in transfers, and who will have to replace Victor Wanyama, who has expressed his intention to go play elsewhere.

Technical director Olivier Renard will therefore have to work hard if he wants to see CF Montreal have a similar season in 2023, after maintaining a 20-9-5 record in 2022.
