Transfer Rumor Mill: Juventus, Manchester United, & PSG Eye Monaco Midfielder

AS Monaco’s 24-year-old midfielder, Youssouf Fofana, could be on the move once the calendar turns to 2024. Furthermore, the time is now if the Ligue 1 side wants to secure a transfer fee for Fofona, whose contract expires in June 2025. 

Nonetheless, Fofana is generating so much interest from top European clubs that Monaco might be tempted to sell him, possibly once the January transfer window opens.

RMC Sport reports that the Italian giants, Juventus, are at the forefront of this race. The Turin-based club has been meticulously scouting Fofana, making their presence felt at several Monegasque matches over the past few weeks. 

The Old Lady seems determined to bolster its midfield options and sees Fofana as a critical piece. However, the Serie A side faces competition for the Frenchman. 

Paris Saint-Germain is keeping a close eye on the development of the young midfielder. Born in the capital, Fofana’s potential move to PSG would mark a homecoming, adding an intriguing layer to the transfer saga.

Manchester United have also thrown their hat into the ring. The English giants took their interest further during the summer transfer window. The Red Devils reportedly submitted a loan proposal with an option to purchase Fofana in the summer transfer window’s final days. However, the proposed arrangement seems to have hit a roadblock.
