According to sources contacted by Get French Football News, AS Monaco’s Polish goalkeeper Radoslaw Majecki (22) is set to join satellite club Cercle Brugge on loan for the upcoming season.
Deprived of game time at the Stade Louis II, Majecki is looking to nail down a no.1 spot next season. After a shaky start last season, Alexander Nübel (25) made the jersey his own. Going into the final year of a two-year loan from Bayern Munich, Nübel was likely to block Majecki’s path towards first-team football.
As a result, Majecki is being loaned out to Belgian top division side Cercle Brugge, a satellite club of AS Monaco. Belgian media Nieuwsblad.be are reporting that Cercle Brugge’s current no.1, Thomas Didillon (26) is set to make a switch in the opposite direction and join Monaco on a permanent deal.
The French, former Metz goalkeeper has spent the entirety of pre-season training with Philippe Clement’s men, making appearances in pre-season friendlies and going on their training camp in Portugal. Should he make the move, he will take the no.2 role vacated by Majecki.
Majecki joined Monaco from Legia Warsaw in January 2020 for €6.3m but has since only made 11 appearances for the club. Back in December, the Polish international vocalised a desire to be no.1 next season. At Cercle, he will have the opportunity to accrue some much-needed game time, as many young Monaco players, such as Jean Marcelin (22) have done previously, and show himself worthy of being Monaco’s long-term no.1, with Nübel’s loan spell coming to an end at the end of the 2022/23 season.
