AS Monaco left-back Caio Enrique signed a new contract with the club on Friday, keeping him in the principality until 2027.
Before the renewal, Enrique’s old contract was set to expire in the summer of 2025. Monaco have secured another first-team regular’s future following the contract extension of right-back Ruben Aguilar.
Enrique joined Monaco in 2020 from Atlético Madrid on an €8 million deal and has since made 87 appearances for the club, scoring twice and providing an impressive 18 assists. Although a defender, he was also a major source of creativity on the Principality’s side, acknowledging the fact that Philippe Clement utilized the player in the number 10 role when he first arrived.
Enrique said in a press release: “It is a great pleasure for me to extend my career with AS Monaco and continue my career at the club. It was an ambitious club and I am delighted to be playing for this great team and to sign a long-term contract with AS Monaco.”
Sporting Director Paul Mitchell said: “Since arriving at the club, Caio has demonstrated an exemplary state of mind. His mentality and playing quality make him an important player in the team. His work has allowed him to progress day by day and raise his profile.
Plan to stay in Matazo
Another player who remains with the club is young Elliott Matazo. Monaco signed Mohamed Kamara from Red Bull Salzburg on Sunday. Mail International, who plays in the same position, reportedly doesn’t want him to leave on loan.
according to L’Equipe, Monaco will not sign another central midfielder in order not to impede the progress of other young midfielders and give them more playing time. Not only Matazo but also Songtu Magasa and Félix Lemaréchal have impresses with their play at the midfield pivot and given that youth integration in Monaco’s project is central, the club is looking for more midfield players. Do not seek reinforcement. This is what rules out Lester’s Boubacari his Soumare move.
L’Equipe Despite interest from Freiburg, Bayern Leverkusen and Club Brugge, Matazo is set to feature again in Saturday’s match against Lens and has no plans to depart in the final two weeks of the transfer window, reports reports.
