I can’t imagine what else. Toulouse has probably the best squad in Europe at the moment.

Not sure they can afford it:

In May 2020, the Financial Times reported that DAZN was seeking further investments in order to secure the future of the business, which had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In October 2020, it reached a deal to sell stakes in Goal, Spox, VoetbalZone to Integrated Media Company (IMC), a portfolio of TPG Capital,[23] and in December 2020 it sold Sporting News to PAX Holdings.

On the other hand:

Telecommunications giant BT confirmed in April that it was in talks with several parties over a potential sale of its sports network, in order to focus on the telco and 5G arms of its business. Commercial broadcaster ITV was among those linked with a deal.

Kevin Mayer, the chairman of DAZN, reiterated earlier this month that the over-the-top (OTT) service would be interested in securing domestic rights to the Premier League, which BT Sport is slated to broadcast until the end of the 2024/25 season. Mayer also reportedly added that one route to English soccer’s top flight could “possibly” be through an acquisition of BT Sport.

hardly an exclusive from Mr Fissler.

I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....
