Mercato: Monaco welcomes Malang Sarr and aims for a big blow

Malang Sarr will try to revive Monaco.

Confident before returning to PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday (8:30 p.m.) in the Netherlands, AS Monaco coach Philippe Clement is well aware of the importance of this third preliminary round of the Champions League.

The result of the return match (1-1 first leg) will have an impact on the season, but also on the recruitment of the Mongasques in the coming weeks.

Malang Sarr arrives on loan

The Principality club would be more attractive with a ticket to the group stage in their pocket. And better armed with the recipes of the prestigious C1.

In the meantime, Monaco did not need these arguments to attract a first central defender. Absent from Thomas Tuchel Chelsea’s plans, Malang Sarr (23) will land on the Rock as part of a one-season paying loan (750,000 euros) with option to buy (12 M€ + 3 M€) . Since signing in 2020, the former Niois has never won with the Blues and will try to relaunch his career with the Mongasques.

Bailly priority

We can almost speak of a bet for ASM which, according to L’Equipe, did not consider Sarr as its priority. At the top of the list is rather the name of Eric Bailly (28) from whom Monaco would also like to obtain a loan. The problem is that Manchester United, although open to the departure of the Ivorian under contract until 2024, wants a permanent transfer of the player recruited for 38 M € in 2016. A qualification in the Champions League would necessarily be an asset on this file which could influence the future of Benot Badiashile.
