Olympique Lyonnais is on the way to achieve a very big blow at the end of the transfer window, with the recruitment of JÃ © rÃ´me Boateng. The German defender is expected this Tuesday in the Rhine to spend his medical visit. If it is successful, the German defender will sign his two-year contract in stride. A reinforcement of choice for Lyon, especially as the 32-year-old has been free since leaving Bayern Munich, where he spent ten years.
The matter could be completed by the end of the transfer window. Or even a little after. The fact that Boateng is free allows OL to enlist him at any time, regardless of the official transfer window. But things could still be finalized quickly as Lyon will have to return their list of players registered for the Europa League by this Thursday, the deadline set by UEFA. There is no doubt that Peter Bosz will want to have the 2014 world champion in the European Cup, if he puts his boots on at Groupama Stadium.
Trained at Hertha Berlin, Kevin-Prince Boateng’s older brother went through Hamburg and Manchester City, before being recruited by Bayern in the summer 2011 (for 13.5 million euros). In Bavaria, he played 363 games, for 10 goals and 28 assists (in all competitions). Time to win nine Bundesligas, five German Cups and two Champions League. Among others.
As his arrival in Ligue 1 looms, social networks are in advance of his reunion with Lionel Messi, now at PSG. No one has forgotten the humiliation suffered by the former Bayern defender in 2015 during a famous Premier League semi-final first leg. champions. Caught up in speed by a Barcelona genius hook, Boateng collapsed in slow motion on the Camp Nou lawn.
