Very close to Olympique Marseille this winter, FC Nantes striker, Randal Kolo Muani, has joined his new club.
FC Nantes Mercato : Kolo Muani goes to Eintracht Frankfurt
Thunderclap at the Canaries! At the end of his contract in June at FC Nantes, the French forward Randal Kolo Muani has signed in the Bundesliga this Friday, at Eintracht Frankfurt. A great operation completed by the 10th of the German championship who managed to get the coveted striker away from big clubs like Olympique Marseille. In search of offensive reinforcements this winter, the club of Pablo Longoria had begun advanced discussions with the entourage of the Bondynois for a free arrival at the end of the season.
Despite a certain rapprochement with the OM, the player had finally decided to prioritize offers from abroad. A huge disappointment for Longoria who had been eyeing the jewel of FC Nantes for many months. Present this summer at the Olympic Games with the French team, Kolo Muani had signed this season a significant rise in power on the European scene with 9 goals and 2 assists in Ligue 1, including a remarkable performance against PSG mid-February.
A great move from Frankfurt
Faced with competition from major clubs such as AC Milan and Olympique Marseille, Eintracht Frankfurt managed to convince Randal Kolo Muani to sign for them, guaranteeing him an ambitious sporting project, as well as a salary much higher than that received at FC Nantes. The sporting director of the German club, Markus Krösche, welcomed the signing, underlining the great versatility of the 23-year-old player.
“Randal Kolo Muani brings the skills we need for our game. He is fast, strong and has a very good shot. In addition, he is tactically variable and can play in multiple systems, which will give us even more variability in the new season. Randal has also attracted interest from many clubs because of his development potential. We are very happy that he wants to make his next steps at Eintracht Frankfurt. “
