Doku, a promising international figure for Belgium, is poised to bid adieu to Rennes, a move that is anticipated to be accompanied by a significant financial influx for the Ligue 1 outfit, thereby establishing a new watermark for their record sales. It’s worth noting that prior speculations had already hinted at Doku’s alignment with Manchester City, with the young talent purportedly having agreed upon personal terms for an extended five-year tenure under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola.
The narrative takes an intriguing turn with Romano revealing that Manchester City’s overtures have materialized in a novel verbal proposal, spanning a spectrum between €55 million and €60 million. This strategic bid is emblematic of the club’s commitment to aligning their valuation with Rennes’, effectively putting forth an offer that resonates with the French club’s expectations for their prized asset.
In light of these developments, the Etihad Stadium appears to be exuding an aura of anticipation, as City’s strategists aspire to ink a deal with Rennes over the course of the imminent week. This timeline underscores the swiftness with which Manchester City is hoping to secure Doku’s services, as they remain on the lookout for a formidable right-sided winger in the aftermath of Riyad Mahrez’s departure to Al-Ahli.
