While his future seemed to be emerging far from Racing 92, international winger Teddy Thomas could finally extend his lease with the Ile-de-France club according to Midi Olympique, but not without conditions.
Teddy Thomas and Racing 92, the story may not be over yet. As he comes to the end of his contract at the end of the season, the leaders of the Hauts-de-Seine club have informed their international winger (27 caps) that he is no longer part of their plans for the next season. A situation which then pushed the former player of Biarritz Olympique to multiply contacts with several big cars of the Top 14, in particular the Stade Toulousain, Lyon and RC Toulon, even if the salary claims of the international winger can pose a problem. However, the situation has recently changed on the side of Racing 92. Indeed, the arrival of Gaël Fickou within the workforce of Ciel-et-Blanc would have convinced Teddy Thomas to do everything to convince the leaders of the Ile-de-France club to grant him a new commitment. Very close to the former Stade Français Paris player, the international winger would be ready to make sacrifices to stay at Racing 92.
Racing 92 will have to make room to keep Thomas
To arrive at his ends, Teddy Thomas could accept a contract for a single year but also to lower his salary to facilitate the conclusion of negotiations. Concessions which testify to the desire of the former Parisian to evolve with his teammate in selection, to whom he is very close. In an interview with Olympic noon, Jacky Lorenzetti confided that, on this file, “we did not find the key, we passed the hand” but noises from the hallway suggest that such an operation remains “possible”. Seeing a positive conclusion to this situation is not only in the hands of the club and the player. Indeed, always according to Olympic noon, Racing 92 should then free up a place in its bloated workforce, especially in the back lines. One of the tracks mentioned leads to Emiliano Boffelli. The Argentinian, who arrived in Hauts-de-Seine at the start of 2021, is very rare in Racing 92 matches, with only three appearances, and could thus be released from his contract in the event of an interesting proposal concerning him. .
