Jardim Provides Update Problem Situation Mbappe, Fabinho And Lemar
Leonardo Jardim said that Kylian Mbappe, Fabinho and Thomas Lemar are still focused on playing with Monaco. Throughout the transfer market this summer, speculation about their future continues to circulate.
Monaco have lost midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko who joined Chelsea. Meanwhile left-back Benjamin Mendy and playmaker Bernardo Silva also moved into the Premier League by joining Manchester City.
Mbappe has been linked with a transfer worth 180 million euros to Real Madrid, although Monaco is in talks with the striker to extend his contract. While Lemar is Arsenal’s target. Fabinho is strongly linked with Manchester United before they bring in Nemanja Matic from Chelsea.
The Ligue 1 champion is determined to defend the trio of players. And Jardim, whose team started their bid to defend their Ligue 1 title against Toulouse this weekend, said that the players were preparing to play a role in the new season.
“All our players last season are important to defend the club. But it has been shown for years that we are not always possible to defend our players. So our goal is to work well with players who stay here after the transfer window closes, “he added.
“Yes, (Mbappe) did not score in the pre-season, but he’s working hard to change things. It’s not just about him. But also about all the young players who were here last year and had such a great season as Fabinho, Lemar, Kylian. We’re talking about them joining other clubs, but they stay focused, “Jardim continued.
“Of course, Fabinho and Lemar are older, they may be a little more mature. But Kylian, even the last two days, she’s been working hard. They know the most important is the performance in the field, “he concluded.
The performance shown by Mbappe put him in the lineup of Didier Deschamps’ side of France’s national side recently. And after Real Madrid lost Alvaro Morata who left for Chelsea, the Spanish club is rumored to be trying to get Mbappe services before the transfer window closes. (Source: Four Four Two)
