Clement Grenier Says Lyon Finances Likely To Force His Transfer

7 years ago

Interviewed on the official Lyon website, long time Newcastle target Clement Grenier has admitted that the French club’s financial position, may leave them with little option but to cash in on the French international.

However, Grenier has pledged his loyalty to Lyon and indicated that he won’t force a move, saying that any transfer will be a joint decision between club and player, “If it allows me to take the next step and it helps the club…”

If Newcastle could sign Clement Grenier, then it would be a real moving forward signing for United, and it appears almost certain that the French midfielder will be starting the new season with a new club.

In January Newcastle had an offer rejected and it would appear certain that there will be serious competition now for his signature, will United go the extra mike to grab him?

Clement Grenier speaking to the Lyon website;

“You never know what will happen, I think first I have to prepare myself.

“I am at Lyon but I know that economic reasons might change that.

“If it happens then it will be a decision made together.

“If it allows me to take the next step and it helps the club…

“For now this is not news and I move forward with the club (Lyon).”
