OL: Thiago Mendes changes his mind about his future


OL leaders apparently aim to get rid of new elements, this end of the transfer window. Thiago Mendes has changed his mind about his future.

Thiago Mendes, OL Olympique Lyonnais

In great difficulty in the Ligue 1 classification, OL have chosen to make big changes this winter. The Lyon club has validated the departures of Karl Toko Ekambi (Rennes), Romain Faivre (Lorient), Jeff Reine-Adélaïde (Troyes), Florent Sanchez (Volendam) and Tetê (Leicester). In the direction of arrivals, the Lyonnais obtained the services of Amin Sarr (ex-Heerenveen) and Dejan Lovren (Zenith). Malo Gusto signed for Chelsea, who loaned him to Lyon until the end of the season.

Rhone recruiters have therefore not remained inactive. They made changes that should allow Laurent Blanc to rely on a group more in line with his wishes. But the leaders would still like to reduce it, even if it means pushing players towards the exit. Moussa Dembélé would notably be on the transfer list. The technician, on the other hand, would have convinced Thiago Mendes, whom he appreciates, to reassess his future.

White impatient for the transfer window to end

According to information obtained by goal, Thiago Mendes has let it be known that he no longer wishes to leave Lyon. The Brazilian was announced at the start, at the start of the transfer window, but he finally changed his mind. It must be said that Laurent Blanc gives him playing time. The player has played 19 Ligue 1 games this season, including 17 as a starter. And he has a contract that runs until June 2025.

Good news for Laurent Blanc, who recently indicated that he was tired of the winter transfer window. The technician would even like it to be removed, or even that the period be reduced to its bare minimum, given that most of the operations are concluded in the last three days. While waiting for the market to close, OL have given themselves some breathing room by winning their match in Ajaccio this weekend.
