ASSE: Guirassy moves away, rivalry with OL does not help

In search of a striker this winter, AS Saint-Etienne has particularly thought of Serhou Guirassy. But the track turns out to be complicated since the Rennais receives an inaccessible salary. Only a gesture from sports director Florian Maurice could unblock the situation. Which looks unlikely.

After the arrivals of Joris Gnagnon, Paul Bernardoni and Sada Thioub, AS Saint-Etienne has not completed its recruitment. New coach Pascal Dupraz is still hoping for the arrival of a striker capable of weighing down opposing defenses and capitalizing on his team’s chances. The problem is that reinforcements to this key position are often the most expensive. And everyone knows that the Saint-Etienne club has only limited room for maneuver financially.

Guirassy’s salary is a problem

Confirmation on the Serhou Guirassy file, which the Greens will have difficulty recruiting despite their interest. Stade Rennais would probably not oppose the departure of his replacement. Ditto for the player who has only started three Ligue 1 games this season. Only here, his salary reaches 200,000 euros per month, an amount largely inaccessible for AS Saint-Etienne. To consider a simple loan, Stade Rennais would have to agree to take over more than half of Serhou Guirassy’s income. Suffice to say that it would be a nice gift from the Breton club.

But the hypothesis remains rather unlikely, especially since the sports director of the Rouge et Noir, a certain Florian Maurice, is not the biggest fan of the Greens as a former player and manager of Olympique Lyonnais… The current red lantern will have to consider a new alternative, knowing that the Jean-Philippe Mateta file, ” to the point of death in the words of Pascal Dupraz, should not succeed either. Indeed, the Crystal Palace striker finds playing time under the orders of a Patrick Vieira who wants to keep it.
