Three-time European champion Emerson (UEFA Champions League, Super Cup, Euro 2020/1) today joined the French top division Olympique Lyon, with both clubs confirming a lease for the entire season that looked like a real deal for a hot moment, but will be fair. temporary arrangement after all – for a commission of 500 thousand euros (with another 500 thousand euros of potential bonuses)…
Lyon has a confirmed call option, possibly up to € 15 million. Meanwhile, Emerson also confirmed that he has two years left on his contract with Chelsea in a recent interview with ESPN Brasil, so we have already renewed his contract even before this transition.
Somewhat surprising given Emerson’s overall lack of involvement since day one after arriving in Chelsea in January 2017 – just 71 appearances in 3.5+ seasons, less than half of which, 33 in the Premier League – will be his first. term of service in the Loan Army.
Lyon finished fourth in Ligue 1 last season and had a good start. In the first two games of the season, they lost without a win, and last weekend they lost to Angers SCO with a score of 3: 0. Oops.
Good luck Emerson!
