Invited this Monday of the RMC Football Show, the president of Stade Rennais, Nicolas Holveck, swept the news of the transfer market, focusing on “the big file” Eduardo Camavinga.
Eduardo Camavinga, who has only one year of contract, will probably not extend with his training club. As revealed by RMC Sport on May 25, the Stade Rennais player does not intend to and announced it to his managers. The biggest European clubs, including PSG, one of the few to be able to afford the nugget this summer, have been on the lookout for several months, and intend to take advantage of the situation.
“One of the priorities is to reduce the workforce. We have 8 or 9 players to leave, explained Nicolas Holveck, the president of Stade Rennais, this Monday in the RMC Football Show. There remains the big Eduardo file, everything is still open, either for a possible departure, or to prolong it. This is the big file in progress. He will not leave for nothing. We had a lot of exchanges, but nothing is done in one direction or in the other.”
The race has been on for a long time for the 18-year-old French international, who is particularly in the sights of PSG. It remains to be seen who will win the stake and at what price. The transfer will hardly reach the 100 million euros desired for a time by Stade Rennais, Nicolas Holveck is well aware: “Setting a limit price on this atypical market would be a little presumptuous. What is certain is that ‘it has a certain value and a certain value. “
Number 6, the “top priority” of the Rennes transfer window
The leader of the Breton club did not stop at the single case of Camavinga, recalling that Rennes was targeting four essential positions to strengthen this summer. Most have moreover been filled. Loïc Badé, the defender of Lens, has arrived. The medical visit of Norwegian full-back Birger Meling is scheduled for Tuesday. Stade Rennais is now looking for a n ° 6 and is concentrating all its efforts on this file.
“We will have a very solid base once we get this last transfer,” said Holveck. Rennes is not insensitive to the profile of AZ Alkmaar player, Teun Koopmeiners: “He is a very good player. Now, he is not the only one that we follow, it is a market that is rather complicated. Rennes is counting on the European market, we make some very, very good players think. We are focusing our efforts on this n ° 6, it is the absolute priority of this transfer window. “
In the sights of several European clubs, midfielder Benjamin Bourigeaud and defender Nayef Aguerd will not get an exit voucher this summer, reassured the president of Stade Rennais. “Benjamin had very good seasons. He is one of the locker room executives, he will not leave,” he said from Bourigeaud, under contract until 2023.
