AS Monaco would have agreed with Chelsea for the transfer of Malang Sarr. The defender is expected to be loaned out with a €15m option to buy. The clause could activate automatically, depending on the number of matches played.
According to information provided by The Athletic, ASM has agreed with Chelsea for the loan of Malang Sarr. The operation should include a purchase option of 15 million euros which can be activated automatically depending on the number of matches played by the player. In the event that the transaction becomes permanent, the defender will be linked for five seasons with the Monegasque club. His medical examination should take place in the next few hours, while L’Équipe gives substantially identical figures: 750,000 euros for the loan, 12 million euros for the final transfer and 3 million in possible bonuses. However, the daily does not mention the notion of an obligation to purchase.
The Bailly file depends on the future of Badiashile?
A file which should close that of Éric Bailly, who had been quoted in recent hours. Unless his name has been checked internally to compensate for the possible departure of Benoît Badiashile. The young defender would have many courtiers and could leave in the event of a proposal above 50 million euros. The leaders of Monaco do not seem to have any intention of rushing to recruit a midfielder. They indeed recently explained that they preferred to give a chance to members of the training center, that the arrival of an experienced player could prevent them from getting a place in the team.
ASM has already recruited three players. Takumi Minamino arrived from Liverpool for 15 million euros, Breel Embolo landed from Borussia M’gladbach for 12.5 million euros and Thomas Didillon was loaned by Cercle Bruges until the end of the exercise. . Malang Sarr would therefore constitute the fourth reinforcement of the off-season.
