Monaco Fans’ React To Moussa Sissoko Transfer Interest

7 years ago

The French media is full of reports that Monaco intend to make a bid for Moussa Sissoko.

It’s claimed that the Ligue 1 club are happy to meet Newcastle’s asking price of around £10m and that higher wages and Champions League football will satisfy the Newcastle midfielder’s ambitions.

Monaco are desperate to recruit more French players and Sissoko is one of a number of players they are hoping to recruit this summer.

What do the Monaco fans think though?

These are some of the comments posted by the club’s fans in reaction to the transfer speculation – mixed feelings! Thanks as always to Pierre for the invaluable translation services.

“I feel that Monaco do not recruit well. I guess Sissoko is OK but not good enough if we want to win the title.”

“He  will be a good recruit, the guy is simply a powerhouse!”

“An average player, not the calibre that we need!”

“Playing in front of 300 spectators won’t be much fun!!” (sounds like a fan of one of Monaco’s rival has joined the debate…)

“Excellent acquisition if it happens.”

“A good move for him, it will allow him a new level and the opportunity to experience an ambitious club and fight to get the title from PSG. However, if the transfer takes place he will find it hard to be first choice in the midfield with Kondogbia, Toulalan, Moutinho and James playing there already!”

“I like this player, looking back he should have played against the Germans, he might have made the difference with his shooting. Good choice for Monaco if we manage to get him.”

“Are you kidding me, the guy cannot control the ball, all he does is run like a headless chicken and often forgets the ball !!!”
