Thursday, at a press conference, Philippe Montanier openly explained that he was waiting for an offensive reinforcement: “We’re still waiting for an additional striker, but I’m not the one holding the purse strings.” Damien Comolli will satisfy his trainer with the signature of Rafael Ratão. This Sunday, the 25-year-old responded to several Toulouse supporters on social networks, confirming his imminent arrival. The striker, who is also a left winger, did not land this Sunday as initially announced, but will indeed undergo his medical examination and sign his contract on Monday in the offices of the Stadium.
The transfer amount has not filtered. But according to our information, PAOK Salonika was very close to obtaining its signature in recent days. The deal could not be done in the end. Slovan Bratislava have reportedly asked the Greek club for more than € 1million to release their top scorer. A source also specifies that Ratão’s salary in Slovakia reached 20,000 euros per month.
Will the TFC stop at seven rookies this summer? Last week, we revealed to you that the file Hamza Sakhi had been reopened and several sources affirmed this weekend the arrival very close to the midfielder of Auxerre. Information taken, no agreement would exist at the time of this writing. On the side of the AJA, one would even explain that the only offer received in recent days came from Turkey with Gaziantep, but which was refused. The Burgundian formation nevertheless agrees to let go Sakhi. The last hours of the transfer window promise to be hot on the side of the Stadium, until Tuesday evening.
