Massara drops bid for Serie A defender but…

The Brittany-Italy diagonal has been experiencing some turmoil in recent days. While AS Roma is pushing to convince the Rennes management to part ways with Enzo Le Fée – the midfielder having already reached an agreement with the Giallorossi -, the Red and Blacks are at the same time looking towards Serie A with a view to strengthening their team.

Frédéric Massara, appointed to succeed Florian Maurice in his role as sporting director, being a connoisseur of Calcio, the opposite would be an anomaly. Thus, on the other side of the Alps, Rennes is prospecting in particular for the left side of its defense, which could experience some upheavals this summer.

Theate on the way out, Truffert courted

Having left to take a break after the elimination from Euro 2024 with Belgium, Arthur Theate (24 years old) will not be returning to Stade Rennais. While everything seemed to be tied up between the central defender or left-back and Al-Ittihad (Saudi Arabia), approaches from England would have reshuffled the cards in the mind of the native of Liège.

Another player being courted: Adrien Truffert. The 22-year-old Rennes left-back is also attracting interest from many Premier League clubs. With two years left on his contract, the player who is retained with Thierry Henry’s French team for the 2024 Olympics could change air this transfer window.

First offer from Rennes refused

In order not to be left unprepared, Stade Rennais has targeted Juan Cabal (23 years old), a left-back capable of covering the axis of Hellas Verona. According to information from Nicolo Schira, the Bretons have made an offer for the Colombian, valued at 3.5 million by the specialist site Transfer market. A first attempt revoked by the Italian team. It remains to be seen whether Frédéric Massara and Rennes will return to the charge for the former Atlético Nacional player, who arrived in 2022 on the big boot and whose current contract extends until 2027.
