OL: the sale probably postponed for a few days

Shareholders of OL Group were all convened this Thursday afternoon for the closing Board of Directors, in order to definitively ratify the takeover of the Lyon club by Eagle Football, the company of John Textor. But this CA should not take place, because one last piece is still missing at the conclusion of this major transaction.

As stated in The Team of the day, the Premier League must provide a written agreement, because the American businessman is also the majority shareholder of a stable in their Championship, Crystal Palace. This document has not yet arrived in the hands of the lawyers.

“From a purely technical point of view, all the elements for closing the file are ready, whispers a source close to the transaction. Everything should be settled this weekend as we expect Premier League approval within a day or two. They were very responsive, as it could have taken much longer. » Optimism therefore remains on all levels, even if it will probably be necessary to wait a few more days before seeing Jean-Michel Aulas’ club go under the American flag.
