Not yet officially introduced officially as the new sporting director of Stade Rennais , Florian Maurice immediately started to work back in May this year and to impress his new employers his first mission was to sign one of the promising central defenders in the Spanish La Liga Mohammed Salisu of Real Valladolid .
SportsWorldGhana.com reported the transfer updates from France as the French club – after a reported 12 million Euros agreement with Valladolid – failed to agree terms with Salisu who prefers a move to the Premier League.
The athletic 21-year old Ghanaian defender is arguably the greatest defensive defensive revelation of the current La Liga season for which the Spanish press has been talking for months regarding strong interest from likes of Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid but in France also Rennais is clearly interested.
On April 30th Real Valladolid sporting director revealed an interest for their Ghanaian boy from two unnamed French clubs and SportsWorldGhana.com understands those two clubs were the former club of Asamoah Gyan Rennes and that of Michael Essien Olympique de Lyon.
Florian Maurice officially started work officially on Monday June 15 after leaving Olympique Lyon and in the transfer market he was to battle it out against bis former employers for the services of the Ghanaian defender but the former France international player should have regrets should he finally fail to land his prime target for the Red and Blacks.
