Lyon drew 3-3 to Nice on the last day of the Ligue 1, they finished the season at fourth, there won’t be Champions League football for them next year, Alexandre Lacazette scored twice, and after the game their president talked about the departure of their biggest star.
Alex has a verbal agreement with a club, Atletico, but there is no certainty, since we have to wait for CAS to lift the ban
Jean-Michel Aulas told L’Equipe, referring to Atletico‘s punishment for breaking FIFA regulations on signing youth players. The club have appealed the decision, and until they get a final verdict, their hands are tied, regarding signing new players.
We accepted Alex’s request to discuss exclusively with this club, but the other side of that is that this transfer is made on our terms
Aulas added, revealing that Lacazette had made it his top priority to move to the ‘Rojiblancos’.
The 25-year-old striker has explained that
it is the right time to move. I want to discover something else and to play at a different level. I know very well that on a European scale I am not yet well recognised. I want to see if I can answer the questions that people are asking, and to make further progress.
