Rennes ‘bidding hard’ for Barcelona’s Jean-Clair Todibo

Rennes are making a serious attempt to sign Barcelona centre-back Jean-Clair TodiboMundo Deportivo reports.

Todibo, 20, knows he will not continue at Barca following his loan spell at Schalke.

And a number of clubs from across Europe, including Benfica and Everton, have been linked with the Frenchman.

But in an attempt to improve their squad after qualifying for the Champions League, Rennes are pushing hard for Todibo.

Rennes finished third in Ligue 1 so will have to go through two rounds to reach the Champions League group stage.

Entry into the group stage would bank the club €15.25m, so they want to be well prepared.

And Todibo, who played for Toulouse before he joined Barcelona in 2019, is a player they believe can help them.

Rennes appear to be missing out on Real Valladolid defender Mohammed Salisu, who is close to joining Southampton.

And having also failed with a €10m bid for Genk centre-half Jhon Lucumi, head coach Julien Stéphan is still in the market for a defender.

Todibo has only played five games for Barca but is a highly-rated talent who the club value at €25m.
