Chief claims 21-goal star wont replace Mane against Liverpool

Chief claims 21-goal star wont replace Mane against Liverpool ...

Martin Terrier wants to stay with Rennes despite speculation from Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, according to TVR''s executive director.

The former Lyon youngster would not be the first player to have his head touched by a footballing powerhouse from the other side of the Channel tunnel.

Cloarec may be certain that Terrier will look his nose up at any offers that come his way during the summer transfer window, but if Liverpool or Tottenham strengthen their interest, the Rennes boss may discover that his confidence is unfairly misplaced.

According to The Mirror, Liverpool considers Terrier a potential successor to Sadio Mane at Anfield. Like the Senegals all-time high, the 25-year-old is a versatile, hard-working, jet-heeled forward who wreaks havoc when coming in from the left-hand side.

During a career best 2021/22, he scored 21 goals.

Spurs have made a proposal of their own, according to FootMercato, despite doubts about Steven Bergwijn''s future and Lucas Moura in North London.

He wants to stay with Stade Rennais until today, and we''re very pleased with him, according to a confident Cloarec.

We want to keep him in place, so there''s no need to talk about it.

Terrier, previously a manager of Everton, was within walking distance of a first ever international call-up recently, but was thrown off outside of Didier Deschamps'' choice for the Junes UEFA Nations League fixtures.

It goes without saying that a summer transfer to Liverpool or Tottenham would do his France prospects no harm at all. More specifically, with a World Cup on the horizon. Even if first-team football would be much harder to come by under Jurgen Klopp or Antonio Conte.

Manchester United are linked with Villarreals Arnaut Danjuma, Chelsea''s Christian Pulisic, and Leeds United'' Raphinha, both of whom are keen to follow Mane on a move to Bayern Munich.
