Monaco have reached an agreement to sign Terence Kongolo from Feyenoord for what appears to be a minimum of €15m with the player already in the principality to discuss personal terms.
Terence, the older brother of City youth academy prospect Rodney, was seen as a big talent three years ago when Louis Van Gaal brought him to the World Cup in Brazil as a 20-year old and has seen his stock rise steadily ever since. As Kongolo played the vast majority of his games for Feyenoord in the left-back position then this could very well be the man that Monaco are signing to replace Benjamin Mendy.
Mendy has been linked with Manchester City for a while now with rumours of a £40m deal being close to its conclusion circulating the media and the signing of a replacement for Monaco may have been the last hurdle for City negotiators to go through in order to get the deal over the finish line.
Mendy himself has been known to tease City and other hopeful fans alike over the mystery of his future with various Snapchat and Instagram posts but recent reports are suggesting that he has made his intention to join Pep’s project at Manchester City clear.
UPDATE: Kongolo’s transfer to Monaco is now official.
