Ritchy Valme signs his first professional contract
AS Monaco announces the signing of Ritchy Valme's first professional contract. The Academy-trained central defender has signed with the Principality club until June 2025.

A native of Gonesse, in Val-d’Oise, Ritchy Valme has just celebrated his eighteenth birthday. After starting his football career at AC Boulogne-Billancourt then moving on to AASS Sarcelles, he then spent two years at INF Clairefontaine.

Finalist in the French U-19 league

The central defender joined the Academy in 2020 and first played with Manu Dos Santos’ U-17s. Last season, he played a big role in a very good season by Frédéric Barilaro’s U19s, finalists in the French league.

Since last summer, Ritchy Valme has played regularly with the Elite Group, led by Damien Perrinelle, and recently took part in the Monegasque victory against West Ham (2-1). In addition, the young central defender has two caps for the France U-17 team.

AS Monaco wishes him the all best in Rouge et Blanc!
