Léo Leroy (21) will leave Châteauroux free this summer, and immediately engage with the Montpellier club, where he hopes to be able to follow in his father’s footsteps in Ligue 1.
Montpellier has its first recruit for the 2021-2022 season. As announced by the New Republic and Mohamed Toubache-Ter, then confirmed by RMC Sport, Léo Leroy (21), midfielder of Châteauroux, will join the MHSC at the end of this season.

A blank statistical record this season
It’s a nice bet for Montpellier who enrolls a young player who is very comfortable on the technical level and who is said to still have a large margin of progress, all without having to pay a single penny. A great opportunity that the Hérault club was quick to seize, especially in this context of economic crisis for football clubs, linked to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The fact remains that in 31 matches played this season, in all competitions, Léo Leroy has not scored a single goal or delivered a single assist. Already assured of going down to the National, Châteauroux expects to see a certain number of players who made up its workforce leave. Elements on which coach Marco Simone will not be able to count next season, starting with Léo Leroy.
