Manchester City star to join Monaco for £17million?

Published Add your comment

Monaco are keen on signing Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany, according to the Daily Express.

The French moneybags are keen on adding a world-class centre-back to their ranks and former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri has identified Kompany as the perfect man for the job.

The 27-year-old Manchester City captain has had a topsy-turvy start to the season, with the defender missing large chunks of the campaign through injury.

Belgium international Kompany has played eight games for Manuel Pellegrini's side out of a possible 23.

Reports suggest Ligue 1 side Monaco have held brief discussions with Kompany's agent.

Manchester City are unlikely to let one of their most influential stars leave midway through a season, so any potential deal is likely to go through next summer.

Monaco will have to splash out £17million if they were to land the Manchester City star, which the Ligue 1 title contenders would not have a problem paying.
