AS Monaco target- Antonine Griezmann

Angel di Maria

Angel di Maria’s talked-about transfer to French powerhouse and football betting favorite, Paris Saint Germain is about to materialize soon. The Real Madrid management is in a hurry to sell the world-class winger in a bid to seal secure the signature of AS Monaco’s James Rodriguez. The resources that shall be collected from the said sale will be used to finance Rodriguez’s entry.


Antoine Griezmann

With the possibility of getting more cash from Rodriguez’s sale, AS Monaco is reported to set its eyes on Antoine Griezmann.


Based on reports the squad is willing to spend €30M just to take the winger away from Real Sociedad. He is also said to be Rodriguez’s perfect replacement.


Aside from Monaco, Liverpool is also keen on having Griezmann in their squad.


Nicki Bille Nielsen

Evian Thonon Gaillard has finally captured the Danish striker, Nicki Bille. Bille is one of Denmark’s prominent figures during the World Cup qualifiers. He scored three (3) goals for the squad and his efforts did not go unnoticed, well at least not with Evian’s management.


Wesley Sneijder

Another target in Monaco’s shopping spree is Galatasaray’s Wesley Sneijder. Should the deal pursue, the squad needs to raise €16M to ensure his entry.


Sneijder readily featured in the recently concluded World Cup. He scored Netherland’s first goal against Mexico and prompted the Oranjes quarter-finals qualification.


Luis Gustavo

Midfielder Luis Gustavo is also a target of AS Monaco. Despite Brazil’s humiliating defeat to Germany, Monaco is more than willing to pay for his £26M release clause.


Alessio Cerci

The latest and probably not the last player to take on AS Monaco’s interest is Alessio Cerci. Monaco will be joining AC Milan and Atletico Madrid in the race to get the nod from such an outstanding player.
