Metz, a huge blow in sight!


By: Manu Tournoux

In difficulty offensively since the start of the season, FC Metz are reportedly on the verge of finalizing the return of their former striker Georges Mikautadze, transferred last summer to Ajax.

With only 15 goals scored since the start of the season, FC Metz has one of the worst attacks in Ligue 1. A lack of efficiency that the Metz leaders want to resolve at all costs by recruiting an attacker during the winter transfer window, which will open its doors on 1er next January. And according to The Teamthis reinforcement would already be very well underway.

The Moselle club should indeed bring back Georges Mikautadze in a few days. Transferred to Ajax Amsterdam last August for 16 million euros, the Georgian international (23 years old) is lacking playing time with the Lancers, who only used him 248 minutes in all competitions. Too little for his taste.

Metz as the only option

His return to Saint-Symphorien, as part of a loan without purchase option, would be ” being finalized “, the last details to be finalized regarding the payment of his salary. The date of the medical examination of the best director in Ligue 2 last season (23 goals) is even already known and would be scheduled for December 29.

To avoid spending the second half of the season on the bench, Georges Mikautadze has no other choice to return to Metz. He started the exercise in the jersey of the Lorraine team (2 goals in 3 matches) before heading to the Netherlands, and the regulations prohibit him from playing for three different teams in the same season. A great deal for the FCM.
