Mercato Mercato – Rennes: Pinault announces a t acts! – Soccer

Fourth in the last Ligue 1 exercise, Rennes risks seeing several of its coveted executives and the Breton club is preparing for a turbulent summer, as its owner, Franois Pinault, has indicated.

Aguerd has a good chance of leaving Rennes this summer.

A successful season collectively, individuals who have flamed, and the key to qualifying for the Europa League. At the end of this fine exercise, Rennes could experience the next few turbulent weeks.

Owner of the SRFC, Franois Pinault has indeed confirmed that movement is to be expected during the summer transfer window.

2 central defenders expected

We will have many departures this year. It will therefore be necessary to recruitwarned the leader in remarks reported by the newspaper Ouest-France. You need two central defenders, the 85-year-old continued. Words that can be interpreted as confirmation of the increasingly likely departure of defense manager Nayef Aguerd, who is the subject of negotiations for 35 million euros with West Ham.

And the Moroccan international may not be the only one concerned. With a season punctuated by 21 goals in Ligue 1, striker Martin Terrier panicked English top names like Liverpool and Tottenham, while midfielder Lovro Majer, after a very successful first season in France, made enough of an impression to be subject to a offer that cannot be refused. They also have their advantage, executives Benjamin Bourigeaud and Hamari Traor are also asking questions about their future one year from the end of their contract. Of course, all these players will not necessarily leave, but the risk of losing part of the backbone is very present.

Major replacements

If this is the case, we can still count on the Rennais to put the means on replacements worthy of the name. To compensate for the possible departure of Aguerd, the name of Jason Denayer, out of contract with Olympique Lyonnais, is thus mentioned in central defense. In parallel, a reflection is open to the position of goalkeeper where Alfred Gomis could see landing a new number such as Walter Benitez (Nice), free if he does not extend, Benjamin Lecomte (Monaco) or Steve Mandanda (Marseille). The tracks Romain Sass (ex-Wolverhampton, free) in defense and Arnaud Kalimuendo (PSG) in attack have also been mentioned recently. This could move in all lines this summer at the Rouge et Noir!
