Aulas: Lyon can spend €100m per year if required

The Ligue 1 club's outspoken president claims that his team could spend far more on their squad if they wanted to

Jean-Michel Aulas, president of Lyon, has said that his club are capable of spending €100 million (£90m/$114m) each year on transfers if necessary.

The Ligue 1 side have earned themselves something of a reputation for producing and selling star talent, with the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso leaving for other big European clubs.

This summer, Lyon’s squad has yet again been attracting interest from elsewhere on the continent, as Tottenham are reportedly showing strong interest in Frenchman Tanguy Ndombele and left-back Ferland Mendy has already sealed a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
