Winner of rival Racing Club de Lens on Friday, Lille took a big step towards the title of champion of France. However the Mastiffs are likely to experience an eventful summer in the direction of departures. Sven Botman, Renato Sanches and even coach Christophe Galtier should take the tangent. A departure also seems relevant for Mike Maignan. Arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2015 to be the understudy of Vincent Enyeama, the native of Cayenne had slowly, but surely imposed himself as number one.
Having become a sure bet in Ligue 1, Mike Maignan has also been regularly called up to the France group for two years. He experienced a cape on October 7 against Ukraine (7-1). Coming to the end of his contract in the summer of 2022, he should take the path of another club. Tottenham have shown interest, but AC Milan have insisted in recent weeks. Having to ensure his rear and find him a quality replacement, LOSC decided to turn to Germany and in particular to Bayern Munich.
Monaco and Dortmund in line
No question of bringing Manuel Neuer of course, but his young understudy Alexander Nübel (24) is very popular. The former Schalke 04 player has only played 3 games this season and wants to have playing time via a loan with a view to one day returning to Bayern Munich. Based on information from Sky Germany, Lille would have decided to draw with a loan offer spread over two years.

A first sizeable approach that will give Bayern Munich something to think about. Alexander Nübel is definitely popular in France since AS Monaco and Olympique de Marseille have already advanced their pawns in this matter. According to the German media, the Asemists would still be in the ranks just like German clubs like Borussia Dortmund, which is looking for a new holder in the face of the setbacks of Roman Bürki and Marwin Hitz.
