Thomas Lemar - Set to Sign For Atlético from Monaco

Recommended Posts

Quote

Tutto Mercato have reported that Lazio have joined Liverpool in expressing their interest in Lemar, with Monaco unlikely to drop their £100m asking price set last summer.

The 22-year-old was criticised for his form this season having been close to joining Arsenal, but the France international is hopeful that interest in him will resurface after the World Cup.

He told Telefoot earlier this year: "Regrets? Maybe. I was a little disappointed. Once it's over, it's over, so do not think about it.

"I will keep working hard so these clubs will eventually come back in the next transfer window. I am open to all offers."

Wait, Lazio have £100,000,000?! :|

wonder if they sell Milinkovic-Savic they could get near that - they rate him at about £80mish apparently!

I don't understand his valuation at all tbh. I'd swerve this, the price is retarded.

Apparently, Atlético de Madrid is close to signing Lemar. The shirt number 10 is already reserved for him. This is a surprise.

If this occurs, be prepared for Griezmann to stay at Atleti.  Lamar is his best friend and the waiting game may have been directed at this particular deal coming off.

There are rumours that Griezmann will talk tomorrow and tell the world his decision.

They might if they sell Milinkovic-Savic, but no way they will buy this guy, usual bullshit from Italian press. Lazio buys 30, 35M players tops, not more.

According to L'Équipe the deal is done and just awaiting confirmation. Apparently both AS Monaco and Atlético Madrid have come to an agreement on the transfer of Thomas Lemar from Monte Carlo to Madrid.

That is the type of signing they need after it didn't really work out as well as it originally looked with Carrasco, before he then moved to China. This would also be a statement by them in keeping hold of Simeone(if you want him to stay, you need to give him the money and let him buy top players), OBlak and Griezmann. Well keeping everyone as even Koke and Saul could be turned if Atletico weren't making moves and they received big offers.

I personally still feel Griezmann is staying put at Atleti. But where as I was 200% sure this morning, certain journalists that aren't sensationalist at all have put conflicting arguments and one particular one is swearing by his job and future that Antoine is going to Barcelona...  So this now puts a conundrum out there.  All the same, this signing by Atlético Madrid for me swings it all because I don't believe Griezamann tale about he already has his mind made up. Why hasn't he signed the contract on the table and why hasn't he said he's leaving (he can't name Barcelona because Barça want to activate the buy-out clause which goes down from €200m to €100m on the 1st of July).

Anyway... Aside from Griezmann, this is a big signing for Atleti and the replacement for the coward Carrasco.

Atleti confirming they have a principle of agreement with Monaco for Lemar. Wow! This is great news! 

Edit: Monaco also confirms a principle of agreement. Not definitive. But it seems only a matter of time.

If true, this is a major coup for Atletico. Signals an intent to contend well across all competitions. Champions League Final at home in the Wanda Metropolitano?

Carrasco is churrasco. xDChina at 23, Lemar will make it seem as if he never even played for Atleti.
