Thanks to its third place away at Lens (2-2), the Principality’s Club reached the Ligue 1 podium for the 29th time in its history. Another record. Regularity at a very (very, very, very…) high level.
Thanks to its exceptional, virtually miraculous, end to the season, with ten consecutive games without defeat, including nine wins, AS Monaco managed to finish in 3rd place in Ligue 1. A fantastic rise in the standings therefore means a place on the podium, the 29th in the history of the Club.
A record in the history of the competition
Two steps ahead of OM. Already third last season, the Red and Whites have therefore retained their rank as the club most often on the podium in the history of the French championship. With its 29 appearances in the top three, AS Monaco is ahead of OM (27), PSG (22) and Lyon (21), for example.
A seventh podium since the rise in the elite
Since its return to the top flight in 2013, under the presidency of Dmitry Rybolovlev, the Prince’s Club has finished on the podium in seven of its nine seasons in Ligue 1. With these 29 podiums in 63 tours in the first division, the Monegasques therefore demonstrate an impressive and unequaled regularity in France. History is made!
And with miraculous results comes extra attention by AS Monaco’s top competitors in the world who are chasing after AS Monaco’s best players. Real Madrid and PSG have both been trying to attract the Principality’s Club’s players.
AS Monaco’s Tchouaméni will sign for Real Madrid
Agreement reached with AS Monaco for 80 million euros according to press reports, that is. The French midfielder reportedly turned a blind eye to lucrative offers from PSG to fulfill his dream. The French player is very near signing with Real Madrid – so it is reported. Real Madrid have apparently decided to accelerate negotiations with AS Monaco in order to close the deal. RMC Sport have exclusively announced that the agreement between Real Madrid and Monaco is imminent. The transaction is expected to amount to 80 million euros plus bonuses for the 22-year-old. A figure that may seem astronomical, but comparisons have been made to Patrick Vieira, one of the best midfielders in history
