M’Baye Niang will therefore continue the season with Rennes despite all expectations. But while the opportunity to leave could come again in January, Florian Maurice, Rennes’ sports director, took stock.
M’Baye Niang was interested in a broadcast to OM during this broadcast window and rather had to get involved on the ASSE side. In the past few days, the Rennes striker had even gone to Forez to undergo various medical tests before the operation was completed. Eventually it was canceled at the last moment, particularly due to agent problems. At 25, Niang will finally stay in Rennes, where Florian Maurice counts on him. But the winter transfer window is also getting closer. From January, M’Baye Niang will have the opportunity to leave again. A situation that we know well on the Brittany side.
“It just depends on him”
During an interview with Ouest France, Florian Maurice spoke about the future of M’Baye Niang. When asked about a transfer from the Senegalese in January, the Rennes sports director said: “Will we go with him until the end of the season? It will mainly depend on him what he will show us by January 31st. We know very well that there is also a market in January that is always very special, now it only depends on it. We just want to put a player back in the saddle, who can be used by the coach from the moment he is physically healthy. The group is living well, the train has gone well and has begun, it is now up to M’Baye to get back in the saddle to catch up with this train. I don’t get the impression that he’s on the fringes of the group. There is no problem with that. “
