Despite confirmations from multiple sources that Cesc Fabregas is leaving Chelsea to move to AS Monaco, the deal is still not done.
Media outlets reported on Monday that Chelsea has agreed to let Fabregas go, with manager Sarri even announcing that the player needs to leave Chelsea.
Some publications reported that the player has agreed terms with Monaco, but others reported that the two teams have not agreed a transfer fee, with Chelsea also apparently holding out for a replacement before agreeing to close the deal.
Monaco said Chelsea’s asking price is too high, and so, at the time of writing, nothing has been announced officially.
Meanwhile Portuguese player Pepe is said to be inching closer to a Monaco move.
The National Assembly has welcomed the latest graduates to the Principality’s Police Force.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
INSEE, France’s statistical office, has published the latest available figures for population changes across the nation, although these apply to January 1, 2015.There are now more than 66 million people living in France, with an annual growth rate averaging 0.5 percent. Interestingly, the south and west of the country seem to have lost their attraction for newcomers, with only small increases in population. Nevertheless, the number of people calling the Region Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (formerly known as PACA) home has passed the five million mark for the first time. For the whole of the country, the principal reason for the increase in population is immigration, rather than a surplus of births over deaths. INSEE is preparing population estimates as of January 1, 2018, which will be published on January 16. Closer to home, Monaco’s 2016 Census revealed earlier this year that the resident population of Monaco has grown 5.5 percent to reach 37,308. With a total of 139 different nationalities identified, Russians saw the highest increase in residency, now numbered at 749, since the last census in 2008. https://monacolife.net/census-results-show-growth-in-monacos-population/
