This is one less worry for Olympique Lyonnais. According to information from RMC Sport, the Rhone club has reached an agreement with Maxence Caqueret for an extension of three additional years. Once this new lease is initialed, most certainly in the coming days, the 22-year-old midfielder will be at OL until June 2026.

This is excellent news for the management of Lyon. The latter was a little under pressure in this case in recent weeks since the French international Espoirs was the subject of an offer from AC Milan. A proposal that referred to Caqueret, given that a departure for the Rossoneri offered him the opportunity to play in the Champions League next season. Finally, OL managed to convince their young player.

A quadruple salary?

To achieve this, the current 7th in Ligue 1 is making great efforts. As a reminder, the first Lyon approach, with a monthly salary of 150,000 euros, did not seduce Caqueret. In order not to find themselves with their backs to the wall this summer, one year from the end of their player’s contract, the Rhone club had come back with a revised offer. L’Equipe recently mentioned a proposal of 310,000 euros per month. She obviously convinced the native of Vnissieux, who should thus quadruple his salary between Rhône and Sane.

Indisputable starter under Peter Bosz (31 starts in 37 games played), Caqueret was held back in early April by a knee injury. His absence has long weighed in the Lyon midfield, especially in the quarter-finals of the Europa League against West Ham (1-1, 0-3). He could return before the end of the season, even if OL would not take any risks with a player on whom they are counting a lot for the next exercise.
