Thursday Morning Man: Keita Balde!
Today’s World Cup hottie is Keita Balde, a Senegalese pro who plays as a winger for Ligue 1 club Monaco.
He’s 22 and was born in Spain and came up through the FC Barcelona’s youth academy. But he decided to represent Senegal, his father’s country of origin.
Last August, Baldé joined Monaco on a five-year deal for a reported transfer fee of $35.9 million.
