Rony Lopes signs new deal at Monaco

AS Monaco have announced that Rony Lopes has signed a new long-term contract with them until June 2022

The 22-year-old midfielder arrived at Monaco in 2015 from boyhood club Manchester City after spending some time on loan at Lille OSC.

Lopes had been linked with a surprise return to City this year after impressing at Monaco last season.

“I am very happy here in Monaco,” Lopes said in a statement on Twitter.

“I want to thank the leaders, the staff, my team-mates and the fans for all the trust and support.

“Last season changed a lot for me. We must continue on this path to get even more.
