French media: Boateng wants to renew his contract with Lyon, but the club is considering letting him leave in the winter window.
According to Footmercato, although Boateng wants to renew his contract with Lyon, this is not in line with the wishes of the Ligue 1 club, as they prefer the German defender to leave the team in the winter window.
Lyon has now been acquired by American businessmen, and the club’s organizational structure is expected to change to some extent in the coming weeks or months. However, the position of Bruno Sheru (Bruno Cheyrou), the club’s recruitment director, will not be threatened for the time being, and he will still be in charge of the winter transfer window.
Before recruiting players, Sheru may need to clean up some players to free up some salary space, which is reminiscent of 34-year-old Boateng. Boateng played in four of the team’s five games since Blanc became manager, but as his contract with the club expires at the end of the season, he may leave earlier than expected.
