While many sources already evoke an agreement between Perpignan and Toulouse so that Melvyn Jaminet is released before the end of his contract and will join the champions of France and Europe next season, the president of the USAP, who assures the contrary , pushes again a big rant.
Jaminet in Toulouse next year? The president of Perpignan pushes a new rant and denies. For many specialists, there is no longer any doubt that Melvyn Jaminet (22) will leave Catalonia in the offseason to head for the Pink City. This Thursday again, many dailies evoke the arrival of next season of the young back from Perpignan among the champions of France and Europe despite the contract that binds the hero (23 points scored that day) of the historic victory of the XV of France on July 13 in Australia at the USAP until 2024. La Dépêche du Midi even ensures that an agreement has already been found between the two clubs so that the great hope of French rugby, elected Monday revelation and best player of Pro D2 of the season during Rugby Night, is released early from his contract and can join Stade Toulousain next season, after completing the current year under the colors of Perpignan.
Rivière: “These rumors are at best uninformed, at worst ill-intentioned”
Information that made USP president François Rivière jump from his chair, tired of hearing anything and everything, according to him, about his young French international (3 selections) and especially furious by reading in some columns that everything is already complete about the transfer of Jaminet to the Rouge and Black, he who had already banged his fist on the table in this direction two weeks earlier. “I’m fed up with it, plague the strong man of the Catalan club at the microphone of our colleagues from RMC Sport. I’m already in a hurry a fortnight ago in a press release to let Melvyn focus on his season. He signed to USAP. If one day he sees things differently, we’ll see. But this is not the topic of the moment, it is not topical. We will see in a few months or years if he wants to give a different turn to his career. All these rumors of trying to say it’s done at best uninformed, at worst ill-intentioned. “Jaminet, who is also of interest to Racing 92, and Toulouse, it is therefore not yet recorded. In any case, to believe its president.
