Bordeaux may have to sell leading prospect Sékou Mara if they’re relegated to Ligue 2

As reported by France Bleu, Ligue 1 strugglers Bordeaux may have to sell young striker Sékou Mara if they’re relegated to Ligue 2 this season.

The emergence of Mara has been one of very few bright spots this season for Les Girondins who sit bottom of Ligue 1 with just two games to play. The 19-year-old forward has managed four goals in 723 league minutes this season, largely as a substitute.

However, the player is being monitored by several other Ligue 1 sides, say the outlet, any one of which could soon make an offer a relegated Bordeaux couldn’t refuse given their already tight finances as Ligue 1’s fourth-biggest loss-making club last season, according to the DNCG.

Mara recently extended his deal with Bordeaux to 2025 but the club will have to do a lot to convince him to stay put for next season should they drop down to Ligue 2.
