Author of a consistent season with RC Lens (33 matches in all competitions) the native of Sèvres, is, in this summer 2021, a coveted defender. Currently on vacation, the former Le Havre, a dueling player with a reliable recovery, still does not know what his future holds for him. In recent days, the landscape of interested clubs has changed somewhat. Revealed in our columns on January 12, the interest of Rennes is still concrete. The Breton club is still very interested in the idea of recruiting the former Paris FC player (2015-2017).
There remains a problem: the amount requested by Lens is substantial. The many departures recorded on the Rennes side (Damien da Silva, Clément Grenier) and the probable transfers (Eduardo Camavinga), could they allow the Breton club to have a larger financial base to recruit Badé? Not impossible. To succeed in completing the recruitment of the central defender, Stade Rennais will therefore have to be persuasive. The fact remains that Loïc Badé has other avenues at the same time.
Atletico de Madrid and Sevilla FC are also interested
OL are still there in France, but it is in England that Badé has good odds. Leicester, Brighton have ticked his name if defenders leave this summer. In Spain, in addition to Atletico de Madrid, Sevilla FC holds the odds and could go on the offensive quickly in the event of the departure of Jules Koundé. On the side of Villarreal also the profile of the defensive rock Lensois does not leave indifferent the recent winner of the Europa League.
But as mentioned above, the club wishing to really afford the services of Loic Badé will have to put their hands in their pockets. The Artesian club, which recovered the free player last summer from Le Havre, is not a seller and risks pushing up prices. Case to follow.
