This will be Jonathan David’s last season with Lille says the player’s agent

In speaking with Radio Canada and their So Soccer podcast, Lille striker Jonathan David’s agent Nick Mavromaras said the 21-year-old would be leaving the Ligue 1 champions at the end of the season while explaining that the player’s talent stood out from the beginning as a teenager:

“He was very confident from the start. At the time, he absolutely wanted to go to Europe. He didn’t want to consider anything from MLS, even though Vancouver worked hard to sign him.”

“For us, the goal is to finish the season with Lille, but this will be his last season there for several reasons. I think the Premier League is a great option for him. I think he likes Spain a lot too… These two leagues are the main priorities for him, but nothing is being ruled out. You never know with Paris Saint-Germain or the big Italian clubs. It’s normal that all these big clubs are interested in the top scorer in Ligue 1, but I can tell you that, today, there’s no official offer.”

“I can’t say the price today. It’s down to Lille. But in the end, that’s football. Jonathan isn’t going to show it, but he knows he is one of the best young forwards in the world. There’s also Erling Haaland who could cost between €75m and €100m… If you want to be part of that list, you have to learn to manage the pressure.”
