After discussions with the conductors, Nemanja Matic confirmed that he would join Stade Rennais before the end of the winter market. The Bretons responsible must now focus on recruiting his replacement.
It is well known that Nemanja Matic wants (and will) leave Rennes in the coming days. The Chelsea old boy has reaffirmed his desire to leave Brittany, and management have failed to convince him to finish the season at Roazhon Park. The club does not accept the situation and sells the land. So far, if Olympique Lyonnais made an offer, but it was considered insufficient. However, several clubs have expressed interest.
During my time, Florian Maurice started looking for his replacement. However, he will not be able to use the money from the sale of Matic to buy his successor as the Serbian is valued at 3.5 million euros. The Bretons are prospecting on the French market and seem interested in Pierre Lees-Melou and Azor Matusiwa, according to Ouest-France.
These options are difficult for Stade Rennais
Negotiations promise to be complex for the former Nice and Norwich player with their Brest counterparts, the media reports. The current Ligue 1 club is dissociating itself from its midfielder this winter. Rennes conductors could therefore turn to Azor Matusiwa, who started the season very well with Stade de Reims.
The 25 in a 16-match run in Ligue 1 this season, scored one goal and made one decision past. The Dutchman will not be easy to dislodge from the Auguste Delaune stadium given his importance in Will Still’s system. To bring him in, Rennes will probably have to offer around fifteen million euros. The 21-year-old is worth 10 million euros on (Site notre blog d’information).
