Foot OL – OL: Textor arrives, a gift of 57 ME for Laurent Blanc? – Olympique Lyonnais

The Olympics were officially taken over by John Textor and Eagle Football on Monday. The American businessman will inject 86 million euros to help Les Gones.

Jean-Michel Aulas, Pathé and IDG Capital made a very good deal on Monday by selling most of their shares to John Textor. The American businessman had been worried in recent weeks, as he had not received the last documents necessary to formalize the takeover. But it is now done, and the Olympics will now be able to move on. John Textor will have to get to work quickly, knowing that Gones is experiencing a lot of athletic difficulties. Laurent Blanc hopes this takeover will allow Olympique to be ambitious once the winter transfer window arrives. The former PSG coach could be in for a nice surprise to reshape his workforce in the coming weeks.

An ambitious Olympics for Laurent Blanc?

According to Progress, of the 86 million euros that John Textor has contributed to the Olympic capital increase, 57 could be allocated to the winter transfer window. A huge amount that could totally change the face of Lyon in the second half of the season. Les Gones would need it to climb the slope and dream of a huge climb up the standings. It is now, if this was the case, to work well in the transfer market. In any case, the Lyon project will gradually take shape. Laurent Blanc will be able to lay the foundations for future success at Olympique Lyonnais. As a reminder, Gones will resume Ligue 1 on December 28 on the turf of Stade Brestois. 8th in the standings, Laurent Blanc’s men need a win to restart the machine and dreams in the coming months, whether on the pitch or in the transfer window.
