AT ASSE, Adil Aouchiche (17) is the sea serpent of this early transfer window. At the end of the contract, the attacking midfield represents a formidable market opportunity for its contenders. While he has rejected proposals for a professional contract, the PSG-trained player will probably leave the capital this summer.
Admirer of the player, Claude Puel wants to recover the jewel. The ASSE coach wants to rejuvenate his group to rebuild a virtuous cycle. Aouchiche fits perfectly into the new vision dictated by the former coach of OL and AS Monaco.
In a paper written by Eurosport, Laurent Mommeja, founder of Espoirs du Football, analyzed the Greens’ strategy with the French international under 20: “The training allowances are very low. The calculation of the clubs that bet on trading is very simple. If we take the figures announced (100,000 euros per month and signing bonus of 3 or 4 million depending on L’Equipe), there is total compensation for a very average Ligue 1 player. So the absence of an initial transfer compensation makes the market very attractive. A club with a modest budget like Saint-Etienne says to itself: “It has a certain rating. “
A rating that clubs like Bayer Leverkusen and BvB Dortmund have also received. Because, the final objective seems logical for ASSE, a club limited by its means: “The goal is to sell it over these three years and do short-term trading. It can be heard. It’s a trade policy like any other. But morally, it can be debated. On a single gain, it pays for everything else. “
The reasoning is shared by people still in the world of football. Patrick Rampillon, former director of the Stade Rennais training center, takes the example of Eduardo Camavinga, courted by PSG: “With the compensation that exists, there is a return on investment. But, I find the amounts given paltry. Because if a French club loses a talented player and they only receive three years of training … If I had lost Camavinga for example and I had received 270,000 euros, I think I would have been slapped on the fingers by M.Pinault. And he would have been right. “
