According to Clement Grenier’s agent Frederic Guerra, the Lyon attacking midfielder has not asked to leave the club.
The agent had the following to say to our colleagues at Foot Mercato:
“I saw a rather twisted communication on Sam and Clement, as if the players had asked to leave. I will set the story straight. At the time when Remi Garde had not yet decided on his future, we had a situation with four players: Alassane Plea, Maxime Gonalons, Clement Grenier and Samuel Umtiti. We debriefed Lyon has follows, if there was a good footballing opportunity for the players to leave abroad, and this possibility was financially advantageous for Lyon, that we were ready to listen to the offers that arrived at the club. That was not a request for departure.”
