Monaco agrees to sell Lemar

Monaco confirms preliminary agreement to sell France ace Thomas Lemar

June 13, 2018 By Ali M.
However, he will not be heading to Arsenal or Liverpool.

The Thomas Lemar transfer saga has finally come to an end. After tons of speculation linking him with Arsenal and Liverpool, the winger’s future has finally been decided.

However, in a huge blow for the Premier League, he will be heading to neither the Gunners nor the Reds. Instead, his next destination will be La Liga where he will join Atletico Madrid.

Rumors linking the Frenchman with a Rojiblancos transfer have come up before, but the Madrid giant was not considered as the favorite to acquire his services. However, Simeone’s side moved in quick for the Ligue 1 talent and now need only to make things official, having struck a preliminary agreement only.

An average 2017/18 campaign was preceded by a stellar 2016/17 season in which he helped his team win the French league. However, his Wanda Metropolitano arrival could gift the Europa League champion much more than just goals and assists.

According to a number of sources, one of them being the Sun, Atletico hopes that this signing will help convince Antoine Griezmann to remain at the club. The 27-year-old has heavily been linked with a move to Barcelona, but the Madrid outfit is not ready to see him leave the club.

They reportedly promised Griezmann two things to avoid seeing him walk out the door: a bumper new contract and Lemar. The addition of his countryman will undoubtedly bolster Atletico’s attack in a season where they should be challenging for La Liga and the Champions League.

Currently, the two Frenchmen are with the national side in preparations for the 2018 World Cup. Only a day remains before the tournament kicks off but Les Bleus won’t begin their campaign until the 16th when they take on Australia in their Group C opener.
