The sale of the Forez club could drag on for the next few months. The process may take a long time.
Roland Romeyer and Bernard Caïazzo, respectively Chairman of the Management Board and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of AS Saint-Etienne, announced last month that they had commissioned a bank to study the files of potential buyers. This week, RMC Sport revealed that a South Asian fund had started discussions with the bosses of the Saint-Etienne club. The two parties would have until June 30, 2021, a deadline set by investors, to reach an agreement.
However, the sale of Saint-Etienne could ultimately last longer than expected according to information from But. The Greens do not want to rush. Future buyers will have to be patient and go through the stages one by one. It will also be necessary to convince the DNCG. The gendarme of French football will be less reconcilable with the next sales in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 after the failure of the King Street experiment in Bordeaux.
