Speaking to L’Équipe, Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed that star striker Alexandre Lacazette has a verbal agreement to join Atletico Madrid.
“Alex has a verbal agreement with a club, Atletico, so, there is no certainty, because we have to wait to see if the Court of Arbitration for Sport will lift their recruitment ban. There have already been two contacts with Atletico Madrid for Alexandre Lacazette… We have accepted the demand from Alex to discuss exclusively with this club, but the other side of the coin is that this exclusivity requires them to meet our conditions. It is good to dream, but they must reach all our obligation. There is therefore at the moment no perfect agreement.”
