The future of Lucas Paqueta is still uncertain, although Peter Bosz obviously does not hesitate to field the Brazilian midfielder. However, it is Jean-Michel Aulas and no one else who will decide his future at Olympique Lyonnais.
This is the big issue of the last four weeks of the Lyon transfer window, will Lucas Paqueta still be an OL player on the morning of September 1? This question is impossible to answer to date, even if the simple fact of asking it suggests that the Brazilian midfielder will leave. It’s true that within Peter Bosz’s squad, the former AC Milan player is the one with the highest book value. There is indeed talk of a possible transfer at 60 million euros for the one Juninho went for for three times less two years ago. Inevitably, when John Textor takes control of the Rhone club, the financial subject is important, even if the American businessman has put money back in the pot to help the Lyon transfer window. Head of the Olympique Lyonnais recruitment unit, Bruno Cheyrou is walking on eggshells with the Lucas Paqueta file.

If he can freely study and decide on the follow-up to be given to possible offers for Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembélé, the boss of the OL transfer window frankly admits that for Lucas Paqueta it is the boss of the club who will have the last word. Asked about a possible departure from the Brazilian midfielder, who still has a three-year contract with Olympique Lyonnais, Bruno Cheyrou does not hide. ” For the moment, Lucas Paqueta is there and we are happy that he is there. But we do not control everything on the transfer market and if ever there is an offer that we cannot refuse, that will be beyond me. It will be up to the president to decide “, admitted the head of recruitment of OL on the channel which broadcasts Ligue 1.
