Speaking to RMC, Lyon central midfielder Clément Grenier revealed last night that he was very close to joining OGC Nice on transfer deadline day.
Grenier had the following to say:
“It took a little bit of time. We were in talks, the two clubs were in talks. I think that they had the large matter of Balotelli to deal with. Since yesterday afternoon (Wednesday), at the beginning of the evening, I knew that it would not be going any further, so I was on the one hand disappointed, but happy to stay with my friends at Lyon.”
