AF to order A220, replace A380 with 787 or A350?

According to La Tribune, AF is poised to order A220 by end of July. A380 are to be replaced either by B787 or A330neo, decision to be made later this year. https://www.latribune.fr/entreprises-finance/services/transport-logistique/air-france-travaille-sur-une-commande-d-avions-fin-juillet-823498.html
