The summer transfer of 2020 has finally come and gone.
Below are the reports of some transfer business done by the French Ligue 1 clubs on deadline day.
Michaël Cuisance has joined Olympique Marseille on loan with an option to buy from Bayern Munich.
The 21-year-old French central midfielder has had an intense seven days. His €20m permanent move to Leeds United fell through at the last minute for unknown reasons. The English club has been targeting throughout the summer as well as André Villas-Boas. The Portuguese finally had the last laugh.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich also had another business with Marseille concerning Bouna Sarr. The European champions signed the player for €10m.
Sarr is now committed to the Bundesliga giant for the next four years. He has been given jersey number 20.
Bayern had to sign the right-back after missing out on priority target Sergino Dest, who signed for Barcelona.
In another development, Mattia De Sciglio secured a loan move to Lyon from Juventus.
Rudi Garcia, who had a stint with Roma already now the versatile 27-year-old defender and Lyon’s board quickly sanctioned the move on his request.
However, the deal does not include an option to buy.
Meanwhile, Ligue champions, Paris Saint-Germain, also secured a loan deal for Danilo Pereira from FC Porto.
PSG announced that the deal has an option of permanent buy for the 29-year-old defensive midfielder. They will initially pay a €4m loan fee. They can then decide next summer to buy him permanently for €16m.
Danilo has also been given the number 15 shirt. The Portuguese said it is a wonderful challenge to join the club at the height of his ambitions. He is therefore hoping to bring a lot to the club and its fans.
Meanwhile, PSG has also sanctioned the loan deal of Arnaud Kalimuendo to Lens. The Ligue 1 club has an option to buy the striker after the loan agreement.
The 18-year-old French striker recently signed a two-year contract extension with the Paris club before releasing him on Lens on a loan agreement.
Therefore, they have the power not to sanction his permanent sale to Lens if they change their mind.
