After M’Baye Niang went to Auxerre, another “lofter” could very quickly leave the Girondins: as indicated by Girondinfos, Edson Mexer is very close to Estoril.
While he was initially reluctant to join the current 8th in the Portuguese Championship, the Mozambican defender would have finally changed his mind. No transfer compensation will be claimed by Bordeaux to release him from his last year of contract.
Four recruits in the waiting room
The departure of Mexer – if confirmed – will allow the Girondins to reduce their payroll in accordance with the requirements set by the DNCG. Arrived free from Rennes in May 2019, Mexer received an estimated salary of 130,000 euros gross per month.
Another departure should however be necessary to allow the Bordeaux club to register one of its four recruits in the waiting room – Jonas Lössl, Yoann Barbet, Vital Nsimba and Clément Michelin – before the reception of Guingamp next Saturday.
Absent in Grenoble (0-0) Monday evening – officially for injury – Junior Onana, in particular, still has tracks in Serie A, the Championship he wishes to join as a priority this summer. AC Milan could very quickly take action. Monza is another possible destination.
