Football – Transfers: A month after the opening of the transfer market, where are the Ligue 1 clubs?

They changed coaches before launching the big maneuvers

For them, the start of summer was especially intense. But it was on the bench where changes were made. Well the Paris Saint Germain it took long weeks before an agreement was reached for the dismissal of Mauricio Pochettino. His successor, Christophe Galtier, only appeared in the press in early July. In addition to the exercise of the purchase option of Nuno Mendes, only the Portuguese Vitinha (FC Porto) has been recruited by the champions of France. Luis Campos will now be able to pick up speed. In the sense of arrivals as well as departures, in addition.

A Marseille in addition, the highlight of the last few weeks is the coach. Disagreeing with Pablo Longoria over the hiring policy, Jorge Sampaoli closed the door, giving way to Igor Tudor. We imagine that the direction of Marseille will accelerate soon to ensure that Isaak Touré (Le Havre) is not the only reinforcement. A little further east on the Mediterranean coast, beautiful nor did it launch the big maneuvers into the market. But the Aiglons have had to work hard to record the return of Lucien Favre as coach, following the departure of sporting director Julien Fournier.

Monaco won the award, Rennes in search of experience

Stuck in the preliminary round of the Champions League, theAS Monaco resumed training before the other teams in Ligue 1. Without Aurélien Tchouameni, he was sold to Real Madrid for the intimate sum of 80 million euros. Just fill the coffers and have the means to get some good photos in the coming weeks. Like the transfer of Takumi Minamino, snatched from Liverpool against a check for 18 million euros.

rens, meanwhile, had been fairly unobtrusive before enlisting Steve Mandanda, in the middle of last week. The 37-year-old goalkeeper will bring all his experience to the Breton squad, dedicated this season to the Europa League. The SRFC leaders had pointed to another player with great experience at the high level to compensate for the departure of Nayef Aguerd (West Ham) in defense, that is, Samuel Umtiti (FC Barcelona), but the record seems stopped. Last French club to benefit from a European entry for the 2022-23 season, Nantes he also played the experienced rookie card with Moussa Sissoko (Watford).

Lyon and Lille, two different strategies for finding Europe

Very disappointing, even missed the topic during the previous exercise, Lyon i Lille they have been active at least since the opening of the market. But with very different approaches. In the process of passing under the American flag, the Gones first remembered the former players trained at the club. This is how Rhone fans have been delighted to learn of the return to the fold of Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso, respectively, at the end of their contract with Arsenal and Bayern Munich. The Brazilian Tetê was again loaned by Shakhtar Donetsk, while Johann Lepenant was bought at Caen.

Falling from its throne of champion of France, the LOSC, on the other hand, began a great revolt. Appointed coach to Jocelyn Gourvennec’s replacement, Paulo Fonseca will probably have to wait to know the outlines of his squad, which should be reversed. Hakim Zedadka (free), Alexsandro (Chaves) and Jonas Martin (free) are already waiting for the probable arrival of Rémy Cabella (free) and Mohamed Bayo (Clermont), as reported. The team. Zeki Çelik (AS Roma), Sven Botman (Newcastle) and Burak Yilmaz (Fortuna Sittard) have already left. Others, like Renato Sanches, should follow.

Lens started strong, Montpellier tied on the greens

To find the club that most convincingly started the transfer market, you need to stay in Hauts-de-France. In fact, slow he has certainly already completed his recruitment. Adam Buksa (New England), Brice Samba (Nottingham Forest), Jimmy Cabot (Angers), Salis Abdul Samed (Clermont), Lukasz Poreba (Zaglebie Lubin) and the very promising Loïs Openda (Club Bruges) have joined Sang et Gold. It is now up to them to properly manage future sales, such as that of Cheick Doucouré at Crystal Palace.

After the end of the exercise (13th), Montpellier he obviously wants to give himself the means to recover quickly and well. To achieve this, the Pailladins have addressed mainly the players at the end of their contract with Saint-Étienne. Arnaud Nordin, Wahbi Khazri and Falaye Sacko (who was on loan from Vitoria Guimaraes) landed in Hérault. In addition, Téji Savanier has lasted until 2026, which can only be good news for Olivier Dall’Oglio’s company.

But also…

Among the other clubs in Ligue 1, it should be noted thatAngers also experienced a first month of lively transfer market, between the departure of many executives at the end of his contract (Thomas Mangani, Vincent Manceau, Romain Thomas, Ismaël Traoré), the juicy sale of Mohamed-Ali Cho to the Royal Society 12 €). million) and the signing of several reinforcements (Adrien Hunou, Miha Blazic, Himad Abdelli …). Brestwho has just convinced Youcef Belaïli to re-enlist, has welcomed Mathias Pereira Lage (Angers), Noah Fadiga (Heracles) and Karamoko Dembélé (Celtic Glasgow). Clermont has expanded remarkably in the middle with Maxime Gonalons (Granada), but the imminent departure of Bayo will leave a gap in attack.

Troyes, Lorient, Reims i Strasbourg At the moment they are still very calm, although Racing has been transferred to Colin Dagba (PSG). Finally, the three promoters are currently conducting an online transfer window with their strategies: Toulouse relies on young players from less frequent championships (Zakaria Aboukhlal, Kjetil Haug, Thijs Dallinga), Ajaccio opts for old veterans (Mangani, Romain Hamouma …) and Auxerre bet on skilled ball handlers (Youssouf M’Changama, Kays Ruiz-Atil). All of these stables have until Sept. 1 to finish their summer shopping.
