Lucas Paquetá declined contract extension talks with Lyon

L’Équipe report that Lyon had attempted to open talks for a contract renewal for Lucas Paquetá back in December, but the Brazilian declined to do so before the end of the season.

The 24-year-old’s current deal runs until 2025, and sees him make €250,000 a month, far behind the highest earners at the club.

Lyon are aware of the need to increase his salary, but the midfielder would like to finish the season before making a decision.

This summer could see him leave the club, with Paris Saint-Germain – and in particular sporting director Leonardo – interested in bringing him in. Several English clubs are also keeping an eye on Paquetá.
