OL: Denayer and Lyon, it’s over!

The negotiations between Jason Denayer and Olympique Lyonnais for an extension drag on for good reason. The future of the Belgian defender is now clear.

Arrived in Lyon in August 2018 after a transfer of 10 million euros from Manchester City, Jason Denayer began the last six months of his current contract with the club of Jean-Michel Aulas. Regularly questioned about his future at OL, whether in front of the French press, but also when he is with the Belgian selection, the 26-year-old central defender has always displayed a certain confidence, affirming that his representatives discussed calmly with the Rhone leaders and that the two camps wanted to reach an agreement. However, the weeks pass, and nothing concretely confirms the optimistic words of Jason Denayer, especially since the latter seems to be very, and even too much, greedy financially to extend his lease with Olympique Lyonnais. On the side of the Aulas-Ponsot duo we do not want to give in and the situation now seems completely blocked and close to a final rupture.

Lyon refuses to pay Denayer 400,000 euros per month

A few hours before the OL-PSG match, it is even a quick divorce that is envisaged in L’Equipe concerning Jason Denayer. The sports daily specifies that the Belgian international player claims 400,000 euros per month and that Olympique Lyonnais firmly refuses to pay such a salary for a defender whose services are not staggering either. Result, the negotiations are completely broken between the two camps, and the leaders of Lyon are ready to sell from this winter transfer window the former player of the Citizens, who still has a good rating in the Premier League, and in particular on the side of Newcastle in quest for numerous reinforcements in order to avoid relegation to D2. OL prefer to separate with a small check in return for their Belgian defender, rather than see him leave for nothing in five months. But Denayer can also refuse any departure in order to calmly negotiate his future.
