Despite the announcement on June 20, ensuring that John Textor was entering into exclusive negotiations to become the new owner of OL, the American entrepreneur has still not paid a penny. He has until September 30 to finalize the takeover of the club because in truth, he is still looking for a financier.
There are grounds for some doubts, however Textor is not far from OL. Seen in the stands at Groupama Stadium during OL-PSG, the businessman was accompanied by a certain Mark Affolter. According to The Teamit is this American who will serve as majority investor, associated within the Ares credit group, which will allow the acquisition of the French club.
