Mathieu Valbuena to stay at Lyon – President

Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas has told L’Équipe that attacking midfielder Mathieu Valbuena will be staying at the club, despite negotiations with Celta Vigo over a possible deal.

Celta Vigo and Lyon seemed to be ready to reach an agreement, with the Spanish side ready to offer Valbuena a 3 or 4 year contract.

However, in return Celta were looking for Mathieu Valbuena to take a considerably smaller salary, something which he was not prepared to do.
