Stayed in Rennes at the end of the summer transfer market, a stormy interview between M’Baye Niang and his president about a collective bonus would have recorded the divorce between the 25-year-old striker and the Breton club and started ASSE on the case.
ASSE’s broadcast window has seen many twists and turns in the past few weeks, especially in the final days of the broadcast window and even beyond. After the soap opera Wesley Fofana and the aborted broadcast of William Saliba due to an administrative error, ASSE also admitted a bitter failure in the M’Baye Niang case. The 25-year-old striker had no time at Stade Rennais and wanted to jump back at ASSE to regain confidence. While the two clubs had reached an agreement, the operation ultimately failed due to the intervention of several agents who spoke out against the departure of their player. A departure from the Forez Club represented a sporty regression. However, M’Baye Niang appeared determined to leave Stade Rennais as the tone rose with Nicolas Holveck the day after the summer transfer window closed.
Big tension between Nicolas Holveck and M’Baye Niang over a collective bonus?
According to the team, M’Baye Niang wanted to receive his collective bonus of 150,000 euros, which Stade Rennais owed him for several months. The former Torino goalscorer had agreed that this bonus, which was originally supposed to be received at the end of last season, would not be paid out until autumn due to the clubs’ financial crisis. However, Nicolas Holveck, neo-president of the Stade Rennais, felt that he would no longer have to pay this collective bonus if M’Baye Niang left. The French daily reports that the two men had a heated tête-à-tête following this problem, which would have recorded the divorce between M’Baye Niang and Stade Rennais and enabled ASSE to recruit him as the Joker looking for Reinforcement in the offensive area.
