“I’m in Lyon for two more games and then we’ll see,” he told L’Equipe.

“For now, there’s nothing. The president trusts me and I feel good at Lyon.”

“The president told me, like he told everyone else when they signed their contracts, that we have the possibility to talk whenever I want to leave,” he said.

“Nobody signs for life in a club. It doesn’t work like that.

“But I don’t have a free pass to leave. I have a contract until 2020. I’ll let destiny handle the rest.”
