Monaco sign CSKA Moscow midfielder

Monaco have signed Russia midfielder Aleksandr Golovin from CSKA Moscow on a 5-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Golovin was linked with EPL side Chelsea but has completed a move to France two weeks before the start of the 2018-19 Ligue 1 season.

"This is a new adventure for me," said the 22-year-old.

Golovin was a key member of the Russia team which reached the quarter-finals of their home World Cup this summer.

He started 4 games and scored 1 goal as Russia made it through their group and then knocked out 2010 world champions Spain in the last 16.
