L’Equipe: The president of Rennes, dismissed for negotiating the sale of Camavinga to Madrid

first_imgSurprisingly, Rennes dismissed his president Olivier Létang yesterday. The Breton group did not explain in the statement the reasons for the strange dismissal, and today L’Equipe has indicated in a story that the main reason would have been a secret negotiation with Real Madrid by Eduardo Camavinga.Rennes’ 17-year-old midfielder is the result of interest from large clubs, among which is the white team. Létang was negotiating at the expense of the shareholders meeting the sale of the player to Real Madrid in summer, something that did not sit well with François-Henri Pinault, current owner of the club. With Létang, Rennes had experienced the best sports stage in its history. Not only did he win a title 48 years later, but he qualified for the first time in the knockout stages of the Europa League, as well as currently fighting to get into the Champions League. However, the negotiation of Camavinga has been enough to motivate the dismissal of what was until yesterday the president of the entity. Among the possible candidates to replace him, is Arsene Wenger.last_img
