This Tuesday, according to L’ÉQUIPE, Olympique Lyonnais will finally receive an update from the DNCG, the National Directorate of Management Control, regarding whether their payroll and transfer control measures from last July will be lifted for the Winter transfer window.
An audition between Lyon and the DNCG was held last Tuesday at the Professional Football League headquarters, with both parties reportedly satisfied by the outcome, though a few details remained to be dealt with, specifically regarding missing documents for a “stay of proceedings“, still according to L’ÉQUIPE.
Lyon set to spend Summer revenue this Winter
Lyon will be hoping for a positive outcome, as the club is looking to invest heavily during the transfer period, after not having been able to do so during the Summer, opting instead for low-fee transfers and loans to strengthen their squad. If the claims are lifted, they will be able to tap into the €100 million or so that they collected during the summer, notably through the sales of Bradley Barcola (20) and Castello Lukeba (20), to PSG and RB Leipzig respectively.
