Ligue 1 correspondent Julien Laurens explains how PSG intend to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations to land Kylian Mbappe.

Monaco have signed Stevan Jovetic from Inter Milan to replace the Paris Saint-Germain-bound Kylian Mbappe.

Mbappe is set to tie up a move to PSG and Ligue 1 champions Monaco have moved to replace him with the arrival of Jovetic.

“I’m very happy to be here,” Jovetic told the club’s official website. “AS Monaco is a big club that played in the Champions League semifinal last season and won the French league.

“There are great players in this team, that’s why I chose AS Monaco.”

The 27-year-old came to prominence during his five-year spell at Fiorentina before he joined Manchester City in 2013.

His stay in England was a disappointment though, scoring just eight Premier League goals, and he was even dropped from City’s Champions League squad during the 2014-15 season by then-manager Manuel Pellegrini, a move that sounded the death knell of his City career.

Jovetic spent the 2015-16 campaign on loan at Inter Milan before joining the Nerazzurri on a permanent basis, but failed to convince either Frank de Boer or the Dutchman’s successor, Stefano Pioli, he was worth a regular place in the starting XI.

He joined Sevilla on loan midway through last season, scoring seven times in 24 outings for the La Liga outfit.

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev added: “We’re very happy to welcome Stevan Jovetic to AS Monaco. He has played in the biggest leagues and has experience of the very highest level.

“At 27, he’s a great player who is at his peak: we’re convinced he will find here all the requirements for him to fully express his talent.”
