Long at odds with Maxence Caqueret, Olympique Lyonnais should finally agree with their midfielder under contract until 2023. The Rhone club has approached their player with an offer multiplied by four!
Maxence Caqueret will extend OL.
To the list of checks for the season, there was no question for Olympique Lyonnais to add the name of Maxence Caqueret (22 years old).
The club led by Jean-Michel Aulas, long at odds with the midfielder under contract until 2023, ended up making a real effort for its extension.
OL had vex Caqueret
It must be said that the management did not really have a choice. His first approach had been categorically rejected, Caqueret being completely unconvinced by the 150,000 euros offered in monthly salary.
And for good reason, the amount is more or less half of what the best paid players in the squad receive. The proposal made last fall did not correspond to the status of Caqueret, who has become essential in the Lyon midfield. It is no coincidence that his knee injury had been experienced as a big blow last month. In his absence, it is obvious that the other circles, started by Tanguy Ndombele, do not have the same performance.
A multiplied salary, plus a bonus
We can therefore understand the frustration of Caqueret who had begun to consider a future far from Lyon, until the return of his superiors. Indeed, the discussions relaunched a few weeks ago allowed OL to come back with a better proposal. The newspaper L’Equipe speaks of a quadrupled salary (310,000 euros per month, against 70,000 currently)! Not to mention a first signing which will allow him to recover what he could have received since the start of negotiations.
This time, the offer has visibly convinced the pure product of Lyon, which management also promises a future with the captain’s armband. And gives the guarantee of being at the center of the project. There were only details left to settle such as the duration of the contract which should end in 2026 or 2027. Anyway, OL quickly found themselves in a difficult situation for this t.
