Reports emerged earlier this year that the City Football Group were set to add Ligue 2 side AS Nancy to their roster of clubs. The deal was apparently close to completion; however, the current COVID-19 crisis has presented obvious challenges to that.
L'equipe say the current situation has 'not changed direction'; with a source within the City Football group also saying they still 'have the will' to buy the club whenever possible.
The full statement from the reports source states: “There is still the will to buy AS Nancy. We are facing a global crisis. Today there are aspects that we do not control. But we haven’t changed direction.”
