An agreement in principle between Stade Rennais and OM has been found for the transfer of Mbaye Niang. A deal worth 20 million euros.
Dominique Armand was formal this Sunday on the set of the Canal Football Club: Stade Rennais would already have agreed with OM to yield their attacker Mbaye Niang for compensation of 20 million euros. The deal could be concluded and formalized as early as next week while the transfer window, initially limited to France according to the provisions of the Professional Football League, opens its doors this Monday, June 8.
How did the Marseillais, forced to find 60 million euros by the close of accounts, manage to draw so quickly? Thanks to the consideration of a Frank McCourt who, according to Canal +, handed over the pot to the tune of 40 million euros. In other words, in addition to the investment in Niang, the Olympians would be able to pay off a third of their debts now to be 40 million “only” in balance in the eyes of the DNCG. However, UEFA does not take account of such a boost in the context of financial fair play.
Okay … or not
If the information from Canal + were to be confirmed, Mbaye Niang would discover these next few days his fourth club in France, he who made his debut in Caen before committing to AC Milan at the age of 17, then continuing loans in Montpellier, Genoa, Watford and Torino. During his two Rennes years, the man struck 29 times in 80 matches in all competitions. Note that RMC says this Sunday evening that a close friend of the Breton club denies any agreement and even any contact with OM concerning the Senegalese international of 25 years.
