According to L’Equipe, Dimitri Cavare is on the verge of joining Rennes for €3m from Lens. Lens are having to sell their young players in order to find the funds to satisfy the DNCG in order to avoid automatic relegation from the league at the end of the season.
Lens owner Hafiz Mammadov has still not given the club the funds that he indicated he would 3 months ago, hence why they are under a transfer embargo. 19 year old Cavare has made 17 appearances in Ligue 1 so far this season for Caen, notching one assist in the process.
GFFN can now confirm that a deal has been agreed in principle, but there is a problem in terms of loaning back to Lens until the end of the season, because Rennes have reached the maximum amount of players that they can loan, it is suggested that the payment will go through now, but he will only leave Lens at the end of the season. Very unclear at the moment.
