France’s powerhouse defensive midfielder, Yann M’Vila has today had all talks of a transfer away from Rennes put on hold after the club told those interested ‘Wait until after Euro 2012’. The Metro are claiming that this next step in M’Vila’s transfer saga is due to the club believing that more of Europe’s elite will be interested in him after he showcases his talents in the championships.
This is sure to put a spanner in Arsene Wenger’s transfer plans as he was looking to finalize a deal for the French player before the tournament. Last summer his attempts were thwarted by Rennes wanting £25 million, whereas now it is thought they would accept a bid of around £15 million. Inter Milan are amongst other clubs vying for M’Vila’s signature.
