RMC Sport report that Ligue 1 side Rennes informed their counterparts at Lyon this morning that they intended to slow down conversations for French youth international attacking midfielder Jeff Reine Adélaïde.
The 22-year-old wants to move to SRFC, but Lyon President Aulas doesn’t want to sell to a Ligue 1 rival.
Hertha Berlin in the meantime have made a new offer for the ex-Angers man worth €25m excluding bonuses.
JRA hasn’t got any contractual agreement with Hertha and is not as interested in joining the Bundesliga side, even though they are offering him higher wages than SRFC.
A complicated situation for Lyon. Have Rennes moved on to other targets, or are they trying to pressure OL into a sale at the €25m amount that initially bid at which was rejected?
