Gladbach to beat AC Milan to Manu Koné

L’Équipe report that Bundesliga side Gladbach have beaten AC Milan to the signing of 19-year-old Toulouse midfielder Manu Koné.

Talks between the Ligue 2 club and the German giants have intensified in recent hours and despite Milan’s €5m offer, it appears that Gladbach have come much closer to TFC’s €10m asking price.

The player has already struck a provisional 5.5 year contract agreement with a team full of French league-originating talent, including Marcus Thuram and Alassane Pléa.
