Nantes: Kombouaré very cash on the Blas case and his possible departure to Lille
Nantes coach Antoine Kombouaré on the possible departure of Ludovic Blas to Lille: “I’m only talking about the sporting aspect. For me, sportingly, it’s unthinkable to see Ludo leave. Even less in Lille, if it’s the case. Everyone told me it was Lille. That’s not a sporting project in my opinion. They finished 10th behind us and above all, they don’t make the European Cup! We have to explain to me!”
“On a sporting level, I said ‘no departure’. This concerns Ludo but also Alban Lafont or Moses Simon.”

Opposed this Thursday to Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the first leg of the Conference League play-offs (7 p.m.), OGC Nice is counting on European qualification in order to move up a gear for its transfer window. In the event of a good option taken on the qualifications, the Riviera leaders would benefit from an additional advantage to negotiate.
High-sounding names have been mentioned in recent days on the Nice side, such as Edinson Cavani or Nicolas Pépé. Players who could come to strengthen the offensive sector of the Gym.

Borrowed when discussing the subject of the transfer window at a press conference, Lucien Favre did not deny the impact that a qualification against Maccabi Tel Aviv could have on the Nice transfer window.
