PSG: Kalimuendo, from Suresnes to Rennes, the departure of a promising Titi


Future striker of Stade Rennais, the kid from the Paris region leaves his training club without having had a real chance of winning

Five appearances and then leaves.

This is the meager record of Arnaud Kalimuendo with PSG.

Despite signing his first professional contract with the capital club, then a two-season extension (his lease ran until June 2024), the 20-year-old striker's adventure in his training club ends here. .

He will now make Stade Rennais happy for the next few years, for a transfer of more than 20 million euros, bonus included, and a future percentage on resale.

An operation that responds to two logics for PSG: cashing in cash and a sporting choice made by the management of Luis Campos and the staff of Christophe Galtier to favor the profile of Hugo Ekitike, recruited in Reims this summer.

Ideally, the kid from Suresnes (Hauts-de-Seine) would have liked to prove his qualities in his training club.

But, after two seasons on loan from RC Lens, he knows that by joining Rennes, a club qualified for the Europa League and which aims for the top 3 in Ligue 1, the step forward has been taken.

Ready for the top level of Ligue 1

There will be competition (Martin Terrier, Gaëtan Laborde, Jérémy Doku) but under the orders of Bruno Génésio, Kalimuendo will have more than one card to play.

In Pas-de-Calais, in Sang et Or, the international Espoirs (12 caps) has shown in two seasons that the high level in France could suit him.

With 65 games, 21 goals and 6 assists, the Brazilian fan Ronaldo helped place Lens, promoted in 2020, in the top 7 of the championship twice in a row.

With PSG, Kalimuendo had to make do with about fifteen appearances on the scoresheet for only two starts between the signing of his first contract and today.

This summer, he was still able to take part in the physical preparation set up by Christophe Galtier.

He was also on the trip to Japan, where he scored two goals in three friendlies.

But Kalimuendo will now score for Rennes.

And can dream of a trajectory like Christopher Nkunku or Moussa Diaby, who left PSG before him for other horizons.
