Benjamin Lecomte will join Atletico as a back-up
Monaco has given Atlético Madrid permission to sign goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte.
With Alexander Nübel (24) taking up goalkeeping responsibilities at Monaco so far this season, French goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte appears to have lost his spot in Niko Kovac’s club and squad in recent days.
The 30-year-old is joining La Liga winners Atlético Madrid on loan for the coming season after receiving attention from a number of Spanish clubs.
According to Foot Mercato, the Ligue 1 club has already approved the agreement, with talks between the two parties ongoing on a loan with an option to buy clause and Atletico agreed terms with the French keeper as they have confirmed on their twitter account.
