Midfielder of CSKA Moscow and the Russian national team Alexander Golovin moved from Moscow CSKA to Monaco This was confirmed by thevice-president of the French club Vadim Vasiliev. According to the media, 30 million euros were paid for the football player – more than for past record-breakers Andrei Arshavin and Yuri Zhirkov.

Vasiliev said that about Golovin had to take a “difficult decision”, which “became clear” only on July 24. July 26, a footballer will fly to Monaco for a medical examination.

I am glad that Golovin made the most correct decision. It is enough to see who has played or who has moved to the top clubs from the “Monaco” – Mabppe, Bernard Silva, Lemar and other guys.
