Swedish midfielder Jens Cajuste (21, Midtjylland) has asked his club to join Stade Rennais. But the first Breton offer was refused by the Danish team.
If Stade Rennais has recruited for the moment “only” French defender Loïc Badé (21), the Breton club is working on other files. In particular that of the young Swedish midfielder Jens Cajuste (also 21), recently seen with his selection at Euro 2021.
The player of FC Midtjylland (Denmark) has officially asked his club to join Rennes. A considerable advance, therefore, even if the Breton leaders will now have to find an agreement with their Danish counterparts.

Lea Siliki on the start
Stade Rennais made an offer of 10 million euros (plus a million euros in bonus), but it was refused. The Danish club are claiming 15 million euros, including bonus.
Negotiations are continuing but Rennes would like to sell a bit before finalizing the deal. This could be the case with James Léa Siliki, in negotiations with Getafe, Watford and Brest.
Born in Gothenburg to a Swedish mother and a Haitian-American father, raised in China for a few years, and then trained at Orgryte IS, with whom he made his professional debut in 2016, Cajuste joined Midtjylland at the summer 2018 for just under 200,000 euros. He comes out of a 2020-2021 season with 39 games (1 goal, 2 assists), including 4 in the Champions League.
