The Mets are having a season in hell, after having reached the stars thanks to Victor Wembanyama. Their suffering may end more quickly than expected. Le Parisien reports that, like Dee Bost, Grant Sherfield, Josh Carlton, Amar Gegic, Jordan Theodore and, earlier this week, Alen Omic, Matthieu Gauzin could leave the ship. He is courted by Nancy. The 22-year-old has an exit clause until February 10.
Except that in the event of departure, the Mets would be in an impossible situation. They would only have eight professional players when the LNB requires at least 10. Which LNB limits the number of qualified contracts to 16. However, the Hauts-de-Seine club has already signed 15. Clearly, they would be unable to continue and should therefore forfeit for 2023-24, they who are already dead last in Betclic Elite.
Our colleagues, however, evoke a solution, explaining that Boulogne could get out of it on the regulatory level with approved contracts: “The Mets can draw on their training center and among their aspiring trainee players to make the number on the score sheet ". This would probably not be enough to climb back up the rankings, however... The French vice-champions must face Monaco on Sunday.
