Leicester City is about to sign a record deal with Saint-Étienne. Defender Wesley Fofana is on his way to the Premier League for a million sum.
Transfer experts Fabrizio Romano and Le Progrés report this. The latter medium from France even reports that it has already been completed and writes that the ‘soap is over’. Romano is still a little round the arm. Romano and Progress are both sure about the transfer fee that Leicester will pay to Saint-Étienne: 35 million euros excluding five million euros in bonuses.
Never before has a central defender left Ligue 1 for so much money, a record transfer. The record was held by David Luiz, who made the switch to Chelsea for 37.5 million euros in 2016.
The transfer of Fofana has not yet been completed, but all parties have agreed in outline. The Frenchman’s move to Leicester may be announced this week.
Fofana (19) was hired by Saint-Étienne five years ago. He only played eighteen Ligue 1 matches for the French club in total.
Update: Saint-Étienne has announced through official channels that Fofana is going to Leicester. He is not only the most expensive Ligue 1 defender ever, but also the most expensive player in Saint-Étienne’s club history.
ð ???? ´ L ‘#AXIS has reached an agreement with @LCFC, current Premier League leader, for the transfer of Wesley #Fofana. The decision to sell the player for a record amount was taken collegially by the Management Board and the shareholders.
