Les deux hommes vont se rencontrer ce lundi. Midi Libre – JEAN MICHEL MART et SYLVIE CAMBON

FREE MIDI INFO. MHSC president Laurent Nicollin is due to have lunch this Monday April 15 with his former striker Andy Delort, released by the Qatari club Umm Salal.

Invitation extended, meal in sight. According to our information, Montpellier president Laurent Nicollin is due to have lunch this Monday with his former striker Andy Delort, the day after the draw in Clermont and a further step towards maintaining.

During an interview with Midi Libre at the end of March, the boss of Montpellier mentioned this highly anticipated meeting between the two men, who have never lost contact since the controversial transfer of SĂ©tois to Nice in the summer of 2021.

Until the winter transfer window, on various occasions, the rumor of Delort's return circulated, but Montpellier did not follow up. This winter, it gained depth and almost materialized between an attacker eager to return to France and a HĂ©rault club lacking a scorer.

Compensation of 2 million euros ?

Following his hasty departure from Umm Salal, the Qatari club, the former Montpellier center forward informed Laurent Nicollin, as the latter revealed in our columns.& nbsp;

"When he broke his contract with the Qatari club, he called me. If Andy had canceled within the legal dates (before January 31) and if he had been free, I would have taken him on straight away. For a contract of six months or a year and a half, he confided three weeks ago.

On the occasion of this meal, the president of Montpellier intends to clarify the contractual situation of Andy Delort, certainly released by the Qatari club but under contract until June&nbsp ;2025. The transfer fee would be 2 million euros. "I’wait to have the truth", warned Laurent Nicollin.

Looking for the right attacker

Since his return from Qatar, Delort (32 years old) has been talking in Ajaccio with his Corsican mentor Olivier Pantaloni. For three years (2018-21), the SĂ©tois was both the scorer, the charismatic and emblematic leader among the supporters (106 matches, 47 goals), but also a valued partner, in particular of his friend and influential captain TĂ©ji Savanier.

Michel Der Zakarian's team has suffered from a lack of efficiency since the transfer of Elye Wahi to Lens. Neither Nigerian recruit Akor Adams (7 goals), who has been down since the end of October, nor Wahbi Khazri (1 goal) meet expectations. And, five days before the end of the championship, it still needs a few points to ensure its survival. Which doesn’t stop him from preparing for the sequel.
