Will Club Brugge strike one last time on the transfer market in extremis? According to our information, the blue-black has Faitout Maouassa (23), the left back of Rennes, in mind. The French sports newspaper L’Equipe talks about “advanced talks” and sees him settle in Bruges.
Maouassa is not the first one: he was a youth international for France in virtually every age category and represents a market value of 12 million euros, according to specialist website Transfermarkt.com. There are currently only five players with a higher market value in the Jupiler Pro League. Maouassa previously refused to sign with Rennes, where his contract will end next year, so he has not played this season.
According to L’Equipe, Maouassa was also in the interest of the German first division teams Mönchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt, but he prefers Club Brugge to play the Champions League. In France they are talking about a transfer fee that is above four million euros, although the transfer is not yet completely settled.
