Monaco are eyeing up a €100million replacement for Kylian Mbappe

Monaco will look to replace Kylian Mbappe with Andrea Belotti if the Frenchman pushes through a move to PSG

PSG should win Ligue 1 by a country mile after signing Neymar.

But just to make extra sure Les Parisiens are looking to complete a deal for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe. That should do it.

Don’t feel too bad for Monaco though. They’re set to pocket a £128million transfer fee and get Lucas Moura as part of any deal.

Do players have to hand the club stash back in when they leave?

So what do you do when you’ve got £128mil burning a hole in your pocket?

Monaco are set to activate Torino striker Andrea Belotti’s €100m release clause, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 23-year-old is one of Europe’s most sought after strikers after scoring 26 Serie A goals last season for Torino.

In addition, Belotti also scored four times in nine appearances for Italy after making his debut in August 2016.

He played the entire 90 minutes as Torino opened their campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Bologna but was unable to open his account.

Belotti’s release clause, open only to clubs outside of Italy, coupled with the windfall Monaco would net from selling Mbappe should make the deal fairly straightforward.

Monaco have been busy in the transfer market this summer signing eight players, including highly-rated Belgian midfielder Youri Tielmans.

The new arrivals seem to be settling in well, with Monaco winning all three of their opening Ligue 1 matches.

Adding a €100m striker into the mix probably won’t hurt though.
