Monaco close in on the former Manchester City and Inter Milan striker Stevan Jovetic. The Montenegro international is set to replace the 18 year old wonderkid Mbappe, as his switch to the Capital of France seems imminent.
Pictures of a photo shoot of Jovetic with new home colors of the Riviera club seem to have been leaked, which show him wearing the number 10 jersey which previously belonged to Kylian Mbappe.
This move comes after a lot of effort by the Newcastle Manager Rafa Benitez trying to lure the striker back to England this year however failing to do so again- having previously tried as a Liverpool manager back in 2009.
Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim meanwhile has conceded that Mbappe could leave the club within the next 24 hours.Mbappe was an unused substitute in Monaco’s 6-1 win over Marseille on Sunday and Jardim was bombarded on the situation afterwards by the press, to which his response was: ‘As of today Kylian is our player, that is why he was on the bench. Maybe that will not be the case tomorrow but for now it still is.’
According to sources Monaco and PSG have seemed to have agreed upon an extraordinary loan deal for the teenager with a clause to buy next season.
