Speaking in an interview with Russian outlet TASS, AS Monaco Vice President Vadim Vasilyev discussed the situation surrounding Thomas Lemar and how he managed to keep him.
“It was not easy. Thomas wanted to go to Arsenal and to Liverpool, but we had discussions and we took a communal decision so that he could stay here. He is a very important player for us. We could not have sold him, it would have affected the entire team and the individuals.”
