Amiens chief Williams: Guirassy rejected bigger Chelsea offer for Rennes move

Amiens sporting director John Williams has revealed how new Rennes striker Serhou Guirassy snubbed a summer move to Chelsea.

Amiens sold Guirrassy to Rennes before the start of the season.

And according to Williams, the Ligue 1 side could've been pipped to his signature by Chelsea.

“He refused to go to Chelsea during the last window," Williams said of Guirassy's departure during an interview with Le Parisien.

“Serhou made a sporting choice when he could earn more money with the London team.

“He wanted to continue in a club where he was sure to have some playing time and not relive an experience like the one in Cologne where he was a substitute.

“The choice fell on Rennes because coach Julien Stéphan assured him that he was counting on him."
