Agreement in principle for Melvin Bard
An agreement in principle was reached on Friday between OGC Nice and Olympique Lyonnais for the transfer of Melvin Bard (20 years old).
An agreement in principle was also reached with the player who will undergo the traditional medical when he returns from the Olympic Games in Tokyo, where he will feature for France.
Coming through the ranks with Lyon, where he notably came up against Les Aiglons during the 2020 pre-season, Melvin Bard got his first taste of first-team football in December 2019, during a match against Nîmes, before appearing on 18 occasions (including 14 in L1) last season.
Technical, disciplined, powerful, capable of driving forward and defending, the man from Ecully, is considered to have incredible talent and has played for each of the French youth teams. His profile as a modern full-back attracted Le Gym.
