KAA also requires an amount of between 30 and 35 million euros. “According to our information, Leeds would have bid 35 million, but Jonathan David does not feel like a move to the English tradition club, which promotes to the Premier League,” reports The last news.
David has thus set his sights on a transition to Lille, France. The transfer must break the record of Youri Tielemans who went from Anderlecht to AS Monaco for 25 million euros. An agreement would be in the works now that KAA Gent and Lille have restarted negotiations.
Update: According to Sport World, Lille and KAA Gent are approaching an agreement about the transfer of David. The two parties are still not settled, but now that Lille has the money from Victor Osimhen (sold to Napoli), “it is strong that a final agreement can be reached in the short term.”
