Sochaux could once again sell off their top players this summer.Sochaux could once again sell off their top players this summer, although chairman Jean-Claude Plessis is confident of keeping some of the club's top talents.
Sochaux have a reputation as something of a selling club, and this summer is unlikely to change that - with Wilson Oruma, Jeremy Mathieu and Sylvain Mosoreau all strongly linked with other French clubs.
"We had a chat with Oruma's agent on Friday and he has not signed for anybody else," insisted Plessis.
"His wage demands over a new contract are starting to come down.
"Both Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas and Marseille's Pape Diouf has shown an interest in Mathieu but they are not alone.
"Monaco have been in contact too and Paris [Saint Germain] chairman Francis Graille has also made an enquiry.
"We want to keep Monsoreau," added the Sochaux supremo. "We will start negotiations over a pay rise."
