Transfer market: Stade Rennais’ priority projects


Attractive this season, the Rennais however have big regrets after missing the podium. And this summer, the Bretons will act accordingly.

On paper, Stade Rennais has nothing to be ashamed of. Sixth in Ligue 1 last season, the Rouge-et-Noir ended the 2021/2022 financial year in fourth place in the standings. A result that allows them to join their Nantes rival in the Europa League. However, Bruno Genesio’s men have big regrets. Well settled in third place until this match in Nantes on May 11, the Rennais could take second place from OM.

In the end, the SRFC fell at Beaujoire (1-2), which ruined their plans despite a success against OM three days later (2-0). An observation that will serve as a lesson for the next transfer window. In the columns of The TeamBruno Genesio has made it clear that he wanted to enlist elements who are used to not cracking in the money time of a season. “We need to bring a little more experience into the squad, because we have a fairly young team in terms of experience, not to mention age. »

Rennes has its work cut out for it

Another construction site, the guard post. Bought for €14 million in 2020, Alfred Gomis has an insufficient balance sheet. Youngster Alemdar Dogan has shown some promise, but Genesio has confirmed that this area of ​​play will be investigated. “There are ongoing discussions on the goalkeeper position, other positions too, it’s part of our work with Florian (Maurice) and the leaders on what we can still improve. » And in terms of improvements, Rennes will seek to flesh out the midfielder who will lose Jonas Martin. “Yes, we also need, when we don’t have the ball, to have more impact, players capable of snatching balls from the opponent’s feet.”

Finally, the hardest part will be to keep the most courted players such as Benjamin Bourigeaud, Martin Terrier or even Hamari Traoré. “The first big job we have to do is to keep a backbone of this team that has worked well. This obviously involves discussions with those who may be approached. Afterwards, there is the interest of Rennes, of the player and of the club concerned, so it is always something to think about, because we know that it is never very good to absolutely want to keep someone against their will. »
