Summer Transfer Window 2017/18 – Winners & Losers : MONACO FC

The new season for Monaco started with speculations surrounding Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid or Arsenal. Manchester city signed Bernardo Silva. Benjamin Mendy followed Silva to City. Thomas Lemar’s transfer to Arsenal was close but they failed to pay the asking price. Tiemoue Bakayoko signed for England’s champions Chelsea. On the deadline day, Mbappe joined PSG on loan with an option to buy. The fee required to complete the full transfer is around £180m.

Transfer ins:

  • YOURI TIELEMANS (20) | Midfielder(CM) | From ANDERLECHT (  €25 million )
  • TERENCE KONGOLO (23) | Defender(CB)  | From FEYENOORD (  €15 million )
  • STEVAN JOVETIC (27) | Striker | From INTER MILAN (  €11 million )
  • KEITA BALDE (22) | Striker(LW) | From LAZIO (  €30 million )
  • ADAMA DIAKHABY (21) | Striker | From STADE RENNIAS (  €10 million )

Transfer outs: 

  • BENJAMIN MENDY(23) | Defender(LB) | To MANCHESTER CITY (  €57 million )
  • BERNARDO SILVA (22) | Midfielder(RM) | To MANCHESTER CITY (  €50 million )
  • TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO (22) | Midfielder (CDM) | To CHELSEA (  €40 million )
  • KYLIAN MBAPPE (18) | Striker | To PSG ( LOAN)
  • ALLAN SAINT-MAXIM(20) | Striker | To NICE (  €10 million )

 

Monaco have been the losers this summer. They sold many of their star players but were unable to replace them  with players of equal talent. Mbappe who could have gone for a huge amount was sent on loan to PSG. Their chances of winning the league this season are slim but it will be interesting to see where they will finish this season.
