Certainly, the club has the obligation to sell several players to deflate the plethoric workforce and in as much there is no doubt that many departures will be announced in the coming weeks. Nevertheless, as announced by Oleg Petrov, the new general manager of the club, the club wants to be ambitious and remains determined to regain admission to the Champions League in a year. With that ambition comes signing new talent.
The Principality’s back-office has accelerated in recent days and these first two recruits should be formalized quickly. As announced, they are keeper Benjamin Lecomte (28 years) and right back, Ruben Aguilar (26 years). The two Montpellier players have secured five-year contractual agreements with the club. To date, the negotiations continue with the club héraultais requesting nearly 25 million euros for the two players. According to the newspaper L’Equipe, AS Monaco hopes to complete the double signing by the end of the weekend.
Good news at the dawn of this preseason!
