Monaco confirms Jovetic signing

Monaco completed the signing of Inter striker Stevan Jovetic in another sign that star forward Kylian Mbappe is closing on a move to Ligue 1 rival Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG is reportedly closing on a deal that will see France's teenage striker Mbappe join on an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy for $A270m next season.

CONFIRMED: Monaco makes Balde move

Leaked pictures this week showed Jovetic wearing Monaco's number 10 shirt, which is currently worn by Mbappe at Stade Louis II.

The Ligue 1 champion announced the signing of the former Manchester City striker for a reported $A16 million fee on a four-year deal, which could now hasten Mbappe's move.
