Hubert Fournier won’t stand in the way of possible Clement Grenier departure

Hubert Fournier, Lyon’s new manager, has admitted that he understands why central midfielder Clement Grenier may want to quit the club.

He told Lyon’s official club website: 

“I have already said that I was delighted to hear that captain Maxime Gonalons wants to stay at Lyon. It is a strong sign for both the internal and external sides of the club. For Clement Grenier, I can understand that he has aspirations to move on, even if he is already at a quality club that allows him to become an international player.”

Hubert Fournier also discussed the possibility of signing PSG’s Christophe Jallet:

“Don’t rely on me to verify the rumour, but he is the type of player that we are looking for. He has qualities and he has already shown them. Nothing is complete.”
