OL's mercato under DNCG supervision
Bad news for John Textor's OL. The DNCG has decided to limit their wage bill next season, as well as their transfer fees during the mercato.
Already heard last week by the DNCG, Olympique Lyonnais obtained "a stay of proceedings", but has not been much more convincing since then, as French soccer's financial watchdog decided on Tuesday to restrict its wage bill and transfer fees for the 2023-2024 season.
In other words, Olympique Lyonnais won't be able to do as they please this summer at the mercato. John Textor's club will be able to recruit players, but their hands will not be completely free, and they will have to report regularly to the DNCG.
This morning, L'Equipe reported that OL had completed the transfer of young Sochaux midfielder Skelly Alvero for 6 million euros, including bonuses. A transfer which should not be called into question by the DNCG's decision.
