Bitter Minamino from Liverpool transfers to the club for 24.6 billion won (Sky Sports, UK)
Japan national team striker Minamino Takumi (27) enters the French League 1.
UK Sky Sports reported on the 22nd that “It has become clear that Minamino, who is a member of Liverpool and the Japanese national team, will transfer to AS Monaco.”
Minamino has played 1,000 minutes this season and has scored 10 goals. He ran one goal per 100 minutes and led the team to the top of the League Cup. It was undoubtedly one of his most standout seasons since moving to Liverpool, but in 11 Premier League appearances (171 minutes) he scored three goals. There was no room for squeezing between the luxurious offensive lines. A transfer this summer is likely.
Leeds United, Southampton, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Fulham, Monaco, Inter Milan and AS Roma showed interest in him, who showed his presence even with limited opportunities.
In the midst of this, Minamino’s path took shape little by little, and recently it has been condensed into three teams. The winner of the scramble turned out to be Monaco. According to media reports, Monaco have reached an agreement with Liverpool by paying a transfer fee of £15.5 million (KRW 24.6 billion) for Minamino.
Minamino, who had a bitter taste in Liverpool, left England to take on a new challenge in France.
