Lille winger Éric Bauthéac has given an interview to 20 Minutes where he confirmed that he was seeking to leave the club at the end of the season.
“I have heard that Rennes are interested, like last year. Of course I am flattered. It is a super club that I like a lot. I know its potential with a nice project and a very good coach – I admire the work of Christian Gourcuff – so obviously its flattering. Additionally, I like the red and black colours. Aside from that, football is very strange: everything can change from one day to the next. In any event, I do not want to get carried away. I am working to finish the season at Lille and for nobody to be able to reproach me. We will then see what my future holds for me.”
