What if Tanguy Kouassi returned to Ligue 1? Two years after his free departure from PSG, the French central defender from Bayern Munich is not satisfied with his playing time in Germany (22 matches in all competitions this season). And the imminent arrival of Matthijs De Ligt, from Juventus, will increase competition in an already well-stocked position within the Bavarian workforce. According to information from The Teamthe 20-year-old Frenchman is considering leaving this summer, on loan or in a permanent transfer. In Ligue 1, Stade Rennais and OGC Nice have positioned themselves.
Can Stade Rennais and OGC Nice afford Kouassi?
Tanguy Kouassi will he leave Bavaria this summer? Bayern would like to extend his contract, which runs until June 2024, but the interested party wants to ensure more playing time. Rennes and Nice are ready to give him some. According to Transfermarkt, the centre-back, who can also play in midfield, is valued at €9m. The Football Observatory, meanwhile, values the player between €10m and €15m. The operation therefore seems feasible for Stade Rennais as for OGC Nice, if Bayern is not too greedy on the transfer fee (if transfer there is).
An accessible salary for both clubs
In Germany, Kouassi receives around 165,000 euros gross monthly. A salary that seems affordable for the two Ligue 1 clubs, which are eyeing the French U20 international. Indeed, the average gross monthly salary of the workforce in Rennes is estimated at 120,000 euros, against 130,000 euros in Nice. The possibility of seeing the former Parisian titi repress the lawns of our championship is therefore plausible.
