Monaco sign Netherlands defender Terence Kongolo from Feyenoord

Monaco sign Netherlands defender Terence Kongolo from Feyenoord”

Earlier on Monday, it was clear a move was on the cards with Kongolo absent from Feyenoord training, and Monaco have now confirmed the 23-year-old's signing for a fee of €15 million.

Monaco are blocking Benjamin Mendy's move to Manchester City and Arsenal's pursuit of Thomas Lemar.

A player who is comfortable in possession, Kongolo was successful with 82% of his attempted passes in the Eredivisie last season, while he averaged five defensive actions per game.

Freshening up an ageing City squad looks to be top of Guardiola's list this summer, and if City are indeed to sign the 22-year-old, it would be a true signal of intent from the Citizens, as they prepare to build for the future. The project is the same.

"Three players left. Other players could leave us".

The City boss will soon be back in position here at the CFA - and Brennan believes continuing to devise innovative tactics to outfox his opponents should be uppermost in his thoughts. "The only thing that changes is that we are going to start the season being the defending champion".

"Will he use new boy Bernardo Silva in his accustomed right-sided role, or give him a free-raging brief?"

That's all for today, Blues.
