It is neither the worst – a ban on recruiting – nor the best – no limitation – of what he could expect, but a decision that it will be difficult for the Girondins to contest since it asks them to respect the budget presented by themselves – contacted, club management declined to comment.
It is also the confirmation that the repechage in Ligue 2 by the executive committee of the FFF was not a blank check given to President Gérard Lopez and that the “financial policeman” will ensure that the Girondins, passed very close to the filing for bankruptcy, do not go back to expensive financial management.
It is now up to the Bordeaux leaders to manage their transfer window according to this new element, according to the objective they had set in their provisional budget for their mass. According to some sources, it is estimated at around 14 million euros. It remains to be seen whether the current workforce has already reached this figure. If this is the case, the contracts of Yoann Barbet and Vital Nsimba, returning to the club this summer without transfer compensation, will not be approved. As well as that of the Danish goalkeeper Jonas Lössl (33 years old), also targeted – information from our colleagues from Radio France Bleu Gironde that we can confirm – who had his medical examination at the end of the week and again on Tuesday at Haillan.
Also targeted are a right-back, a striker (Le Havre Lys Mousset rather than Nantes Coulibaly?), a creative midfielder (Clermontois Jason Berthomier), two wingers (Messin Opa Nguette in particular) and a central defender.
Keeper Lossl waiting
This makes it even more imperative to send players, in particular the highest salaries, like Koscielny and the “lofters” (Oudin, Baysse in particular), in order to be able to recruit.
The limitation of the DNCG also concerns “transfer allowances”, that is to say expensive transfers. In their rescue plan, the Girondins have planned for 14 million in sales, an objective already well achieved with the departure of Sekou Mara for Southampton for an expected sum of 11 million before bonuses. If they don’t have that goal either, they’ll have to settle for loans or free players.
