Rennes join Leicester City in William Carvalho race

Rennes have joined the race for Real Betis and Portugal midfielder William CarvalhoAS reports.

Carvalho, 28, has been in talks to join Leicester City and has agreed personal terms with the English club.

But Leicester’s offer of below €20m has not convinced Betis and that has led to the deal stalling.

Betis made a big investment in William two years ago and his previous club Sporting have a 25% sell-on clause.

After qualifying for the Champions League, Rennes have now stepped forward for the combative midfielder.

The problem is, much like Leicester, they do not seem willing to pay what Betis want for William.

With Manuel Pellegrini now in charge at Betis, a stay for William has not been ruled out.

Pellegrini has not demanded William remain, but would not be against the idea as long as he is given money to strengthen the squad.

New sporting director Antonio Cordon, who has just arrived at Betis, will also have a say on the matter.
