The good news of Saturday in the principality. No, it’s not about AS Monaco’s victory against Cercle Brugge 1-0 to start the summer preparation. The thinning for the ASM is rather located in the radius transfers. Indeed, for several days, it has been announced the arrival of Takumi Minamino at the club for next season. The late news would be to be formalized, perhaps fears among Monegasque supporters. However, coach Philippe Clément came to dispel doubts after the first warm-up game and announced the big news about Minamino.

Minamino arrives for 15 million euros
Asked by the press about the Japanese environment, Clément spilled the beans and has already planned on his future collaboration with the Liverpool player. ” I’m very happy, I’ve known him for a long time. He was very high on our list. Everyone here is convinced that he has the qualities to bring something to the team “, he said. Barred in Liverpool, which he joined in January 2020, Minamino arrives in Monaco for a transfer posted at 15 million euros. The Japanese international is a very good deal as long as he has shown potential at Liverpool, Salzburg and Southampton. His very early arrival in Monaco is a good thing since the start of the ASM season will be busy with the qualifying play-offs for the next Champions League in July.
