Rennes’ €15m bid for Marin Pongračić accepted by Lecce

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Rennes have opened negotiations with Lecce to acquire the services of Marin Pongracic (26) during the transfer window. Stade Rennais submitted an opening bid worth €15m to the Serie A club and this has since been accepted.  

Pongračić has most recently been playing for Croatia at EURO 2024 and is now set to embark on a new chapter of his career in France. The Croatian international made 2 appearances for his country at the European Championships in Germany.  

Huge windfall for Lecce

As a result of the €15m sale of the former Wolfsburg defender, Lecce are set for a huge profit. The Italian club purchased the defender for €1.6m and are set to sell him for almost ten times that value – presenting a brilliant piece of business. Pongračić was ever-present for the Apuila club last season making 38 appearances in both the Italian top flight and domestic cup.
