Deal of the day

“I’m very happy to be here. There are some great players on this team. That’s why I chose AS Monaco,” he told the club website.

It is reported that Mbappe, 18, will join PSG on loan before Thursday’s transfer deadline and complete a permanent 180m euros (£167m) move next summer, so that the Paris club can comply with Financial Fair Play.

Jovetic began his career with FK Partizan, winning the double of Serbian Superliga and Serbian Cup in 2008, then joined ACF Fiorentina for an approx. €10.8 million.

In five seasons at the Italian club, he scored 40 times in 134 matches, prompting an approx. €26.7 million transfer to Manchester City.

In his first season in England, he won the League Cup and the Premier League.

Jovetić is a Montenegro international, having previously represented his team at under-21 level.

He made his senior international debut in 2007, in Montenegro’s first international football match as an independent country.
