France international flanker Olivier Magne has threatened to leave Montferrand unless the club bring stability to their management set-up.
Magne, who has 77 caps for Les Blues, is contracted with the French side until June 2005.
A two-year extension is almost agreed, but the player wants certain assurances before signing again. The club have recently had a high turnover of players and staff.
"My wish is to stay with Montferrand," Magne insisted.
"I've had a few discussions with (coach) Alain Hyardet and the managers, and I felt they are also willing to keep me.
"I want to extend my contract by two years until 2007 because I would like to prepare for the 2007 World Cup (held in France) in a serene atmosphere.
"But I have also asked to put in place guarantees to stop the chaos the club has been experiencing for the past two years.
"We have to start back from scratch with a different sporting policy."
Despite domestic failings this term - they finished a poor seventh in their Top 16 pool 1 - Montferrand could get their hands on the Parker Pen Challenge Cup title if they beat Harlequins in Reading on May 22.
Before Will Greenwood started breaking down moves off the field, he was doing the business on it - and no match better illustrated the type of marauding centre he was than in a virtuoso performance against Wales.
