Marcelo Bielsa has visited Lille’s training facilities

According to our colleagues at Canal +, Argentinian and former Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa visited Ligue 1 side Lille’s training facilities 3 weeks ago, as prospective owner Gérard Lopez looks to bring El Loco to Les Dogues.

Lopez had promised to bring Bielsa to Marseille before he was beaten to buying that particular French top flight club by Frank McCourt.

Now, Lopez looks to potentially bring Bielsa to Lille.

Lopez expects any deal to eventually buy Lille to go ahead around January time.
