Monaco have the cash but not Keita's will, player prefers to stay in Italy
The French champions AS Monaco have made its first approach to sign Keita Balde. Lotito met with agent Jorge Mendes who looks after the interest of the French club. Monaco have offered 19 million euros for the Senegalese and the Lazio president thinks it is too low. But this is only at the start of negotiation and something better and more concrete is on the horizon. The question here is that would Keita accept Ligue 1 as his next destination? It seems that he wants to stay in Italy.
