Ejected from the professional group by Peter Bosz, Marcelo has no intention of giving gifts to Lyon. The Brazilian defender refused an offer which had been validated by OL.
Sent with the reserve of Olympique Lyonnais since the beginning of the season or almost, Marcelo does not seem to be offended by this situation. It is true that the Brazilian defender was extended until 2023 last year and that his comfortable salary at OL can make him a philosopher. Peter Bosz having no intention of lifting the sanction against the 34-year-old player, which could be interpreted as a weakness on his part, Jean-Michel Aulas and Vincent Ponsot tried to find a way out for the defender who arrived in 2017 from Beskitas for 7 million euros. And the Rhone leaders thought they had an interesting offer for Marcelo, the Istanbul club Fatih Karagümrük Spor wishing to recruit the Lyonnais player by finding a formula capable of being accepted by everyone. The negotiations between the two clubs have materialized since the proposal from Turkey had been validated by JMA.

However, in this case, we must also take into account Marcelo, the experienced defender who may or may not refuse to leave during this winter transfer window, as he did last summer. And RMC announces it this Saturday, after having learned of this proposal from Istanbul and accepted by Olympique Lyonnais, Marcelo informed Vincent Ponsot and Jean-Michel Aulas that he refused to leave for Fatih Karagümrük Spor . The Brazilian prefers to continue his journey in Lyon with the reserve of OL, the very hypothesis that Marcelo goes to the end of his contract not being postponed, his salary from Lyon being impossible to consider elsewhere than in the capital of Gaul. For the Rhone leaders, the thorn Marcelo therefore remains in the foot.
