Lyon hoped to win the race for Tyrell Malacia, but now they are walking away from discussions.


A little about the topic

The Dutch footballer is no longer a transfer target for Lyon, leaving way for Man Utd to make their move, with Ligue 1 heavyweights suggesting broken promises are responsible for their interest to end. Tyrell Malacia is attracting a lot of interest after proving his worth in the Eredivisie in Feyenoord and with the Dutch national team. Old Trafford could be his next port of call, with Erik ten Hag looking to add him to Manchester United’s ranks and Lyon ready to let a promising player lead elsewhere as their desire to enter discussions has run out.


What did Ponsot say about Tyrell Malacia?

The Ligue 1 heavyweights led the race for left-back at one stage, but CEO Vincent Ponsot has hinted that the ever-changing demands are responsible for keeping neither them nor the PL Man Utd giants from making any deals. The CEO told reporters at the official opening of Corentin Tolisso that if they don’t have the funds to recruit, they can’t attract players of that caliber, generally speaking, whatever their love for Lyon may be.

So according to Ponsot, this is not a case of having funds, but it will be very clear that the institution is always stronger than any player. Sometimes there are demands – that’s how it is in the world of football – that you can’t make. It’s true that sometimes it can ruin deals, but they want a left back and they’ll find a good left back. Vincent thinks President Jean-Michel Aulas is happy to be able to sleep peacefully at night and not see the police turn up in the morning. The same goes for Vincent.

Vincent can’t say everything. Tyrell Malacia was supposed to be signed on Tuesday – it’s still not completed. Tyrell still hasn’t signed, but it’s over for them. Because the honesty of the club is more important. Vincent Ponsot says they are proud to work for such a club.
