Although not very active on the winter transfer market, Stade Rennais had nonetheless ticked off a few names to strengthen itself in the more or less long term. Among the players tracked by the Breton club, Jesus Corona, FC Porto player, seems to have taken a completely different decision for his career. Are the Reds and Blacks subject to their non-recruitment policy?
At the end of last week, Jens Cajuste, Swedish midfielder playing in Denmark, signed a contract at Stade de Reims, while theThe Rennais seemed to be interested in the player since the summer of 2021. Today, the Mexican winger Jesus Corona, lacking rhythm and playing time for Porto, is closer than ever to Sevilla FC, where he would be expected this afternoon to sign his contract and make his traditional visit there. medical. Did Stade Rennais pass next to a beautiful track, or was the competition just too strong?
If several Portuguese media had mentioned an interest from Stade Rennais for Jesus Corona, among other clubs, in recent days, such a recruitment could easily have been explained. Kamaldeen Sulemana is absent from the workforce to participate in the CAN with Ghana, the risk of Covid constantly hangs over the group, and this makes bench depth crucial in the recipe for success this season. Thus, while the Mexican winger is in great difficulty within the workforce of the FC Porto Dragons, a relaunch in Ligue 1 would have been a possibility for the player.
Obviously determined not to take any risk and to play the card of caution this winter, the Rennes did not wish to dig during this transfer window on their active tracks. Is this precisely the greatest risk that the Bretons could have taken? In the facts, the player in question is getting closer to Sevilla in the next few hours where everything seems complete to welcome him. In the shadow of Lucas Ocampos and Erik Lamela in particular, Jesus Corona is preparing to face a challenge greater than that of Stade Rennais in La Liga, but could benefit from a framework arguably more competitive.
Is the inactivity of the Breton club a strategy in this transfer window, or is it a chain of missed opportunities? It would seem in any case that supporters are forced to wait until summer 2022 to welcome new faces to Roazhon Park.
