OL have formalized the extension of the contract of Thiago Mendes, however strongly announced on the departure.
Announced on departure, Thiago Mendes did not make a splash at the start of the transfer market. Only very low proposals from the Brazilian side were made, while his companion dropped many clues suggesting a transfer to one of the Rio de Janeiro clubs. Nothing will happen since Thiago Mendes has extended at Olympique Lyonnais until June 2025. Arrived at the club in 2019, from Lille, Thiago Mendes has since played 109 matches in all competitions with Olympique Lyonnais, including 37 matches under the orders of Peter Bosz. Formed as a midfielder, the Brazilian distinguished himself last season in central hinge alongside Castello Lukeba “Said OL, which continues to extend certain players used a lot last season such as Maxence Caqueret, Castello Lukeba and Anthony Lopes.

A news that did not particularly make the Lyon supporters jump for joy. The latter lamented that, three years after his arrival in Lyon and five years after his arrival in France, Thiago Mendes still does not speak French. But it is above all his level of play, far from being convincing, which is called into question with this long extension for a 30-year-old player.
