Wantaway striker Fred will patch up his differences with Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, according to Les Gones advisor Bernard Lacombe.

Brazil international Fred earlier this week expressed his "irrevocable" desire to leave the French champions because of a falling-out with Aulas and claimed his "cycle at Lyon is finished", but Lacombe believes otherwise.

"I am confident that the president can sort out the situation with Fred, who is currently at Lyon recovering from injury," Lacombe said in French daily L´Equipe.
