Mama Baldé secures Lyon stay with automatic clause

Mama Balde Va Rester A Lyon

Currently on loan from Troyes, Mama Baldé’s tenure with Lyon is set to continue, with reports from RMC Sport confirming that the option to purchase the striker has been automatically triggered. This clause stipulated that if Baldé participated in 55% of Lyon’s matches this season, the transfer would become permanent—a threshold he has now surpassed.

Having featured in 22 matches for Lyon across all competitions, contributing with two goals and three assists, Baldé’s journey with the club has seen its fair share of challenges.

However, the Guinea-Bissau international’s resilience has shone through, reaffirming his importance to Lyon’s squad during the critical final stages of the season.

Baldé’s recent heroics, including a pivotal goal in Lyon’s dramatic victory over Lille earlier in the week, have further endeared him to the Lyon faithful. Now, he is poised to continue thrilling supporters for another season at the club.

For Baldé, this extension represents more than just a contract; it symbolizes stability and a chance to contribute to Lyon’s future successes.

Having experienced relegation with former clubs Dijon and Troyes, Baldé’s journey with Lyon offers him a reprieve—a season without the specter of demotion looming overhead.

To secure Baldé’s services permanently, Lyon will pay a transfer fee of 6 million euros, in addition to the 2 million euros spent on the initial loan agreement—a worthwhile investment for a player of Baldé’s caliber.

As Baldé prepares to bid farewell to Troyes and embark on the next chapter of his career with Lyon, he does so with a sense of accomplishment—a fitting postscript before his return to ESTAC for the National.
