Stade Rennais rounded off their recruitment on Monday evening with the arrival of a very promising striker. For once, the Breton club has given itself the means to achieve its ambitions.
This Monday evening, a few hours before the transfer window closes, the Rennais Stadium formalized the signing of a certain Jérémy Doku, a great hope for Belgian football, aged only 18. “Able to evolve in the left lane as well as the right lane of the attack, Jérémy Doku feels ready to take up a new challenge: to show his immense talent in Ligue 1 and on the grounds of the Champions League”, proudly announce the Red and Black.
Doku, the most expensive recruit in the history of Stade Rennais
And to get their hands on this Red Devils nugget, the SRFC did not hesitate to spend no less than 26 million euros, with potential future bonuses. In other words, the newcomer becomes the most expensive recruit in the history of the club! At the time of discovering the C1 for the first time in its history, the Rennes team therefore do not hesitate to do everything possible to build a competitive group.
50 million spent before Doku
As proof, the Bretons have now spent around € 70 million to strengthen the squad made available to Julien Stéphan. Serhou Guirassy (15 M €), Martin Terrier (12 M €), Alfred Gomis (10 M €), Nayef Aguerd (4 M €), without forgetting the paying loans of Dalbert and Daniele Rugani, it was necessary to put the hand in portfolio to recruit.
Mendy and Raphinha’s sales pay off big
But at the same time, the Bretons also sold very well. Edouard Mendy alone brought in some € 24million as he raced to Chelsea. And according to the English press, Raphinha is also preparing to pack up to cross the Channel, Leeds United being ready to shed some 20 million euros to convince Rennes to release him.
