The final for the women’s D1 title will be played on Sunday at Groupama Stadium (9 p.m.) between OL and PSG. Parisian players have more than ever the opportunity to finally win the first league title in their history. A golden opportunity before, according to our information, a scheduled exodus this summer.
In just over three days, Groupama Stadium is preparing to welcome the future champions of France. It remains to be seen who from OL or PSG will lift the trophy. For the Parisians, it will be a question of not letting slip a golden opportunity to win the first title in their history against the Olympian ogre. Especially since many players could leave the club in the capital this summer … direction Lyon.
OL plunder the Parisian rival
It is already confirmed, three elements including two executives of the Parisian group, at the end of their contract in June, will look elsewhere: Christiane Endler, Danish striker Signe Bruun, and captain Irene Paredes.
With these players, discussions about a possible extension started very early in the season, especially for Endler and Paredes, because PSG wanted to keep them. It was a failure. Pire Endler, one of the best goalkeepers in the world, is packing her bags to settle in the Rhône. A big blow for the club of Jean-Michel Aulas who left to reconquer after the failure of the Champions League – and the departure of Sarah Bouhaddi for OL Reign. The door will not land alone since the striker Signe Bruun, still exemplary despite a limited playing time, will also be Lyon next season.
Regarding the Paredes file, the Parisian captain has decided to return to the country (especially for family reasons since she is expecting a child with her partner) and will play next season under the colors of FC Barcelona. A huge loss for PSG as the Spaniard is the locker room captain and certainly one of the best in Europe at her post. In these cases, the leader of D1 Arkema has never succeeded in arming his strong elements. Perhaps for lack of time, since it seems that the files of extension of the male workforce, including Kylian Mbappé, were very energy intensive lately. And also by a certain refusal of a substantial salary increase.
The complex Morroni case on hold
OL would also like to attract the services of left side Perle Morroni. For many weeks, discussions between the Parisian titi and management have dragged on. A first salary proposal was made to his entourage but deemed unsatisfactory in view of his place in the team and his international status. This could push the defender to leave her favorite club, with the key to a great proposal from Olympique Lyonnais and contacts with Bayern Munich. But according to our information, the Parisian club does not yet despair of being able to keep it and would be ready to put the means. With the shock against OL to come, negotiations are on hold.
In the meantime, PSG has already reacted by signing the two French international defenders Estelle Cascarino and Elisa De Almeida. For the moment, they do not yet know by whom they will be trained since Olivier Echouiafni, at the end of his contract in June, has not yet extended. And it does not take the path.
