City Group never stops wanting to buy clubs all over Europe. After Lommel, a French club is targeted.
A few months ago, the French press reported on a possible takeover of AS Nancy by City Group. But this operation fell through.
The owners of Manchester City then turned to a club that has been in Ligue 2 since the 2018-2019 season: ESTAC, in other words Troyes.
L’Est Eclair even announces that a first offer has already arrived on the president’s desk. This would be 7 million. Unlike Nancy, ESTAC is for sale. It remains to be seen whether the operation will be successful.
