Coupe de France (2019 avec Rennes)
Stade Rennais officially announced the arrival of M’Baye Niang on 31st August 2018. The Senegalese international striker was loaned by Torino with a buyout clause estimated at 10 Million Euros. Caen launched him aged 16 in Ligue 1, and he had gained lots of experience from spells with AC Milan, Montpellier, Watford, and Torino. Two months before he signed in Brittany, he scored in Senegal’s win over Poland at the World Cup. After a very disappointing start to his career at Rennes, M’Baye Niang became prolific in the second half of the season under Julien Stéphan. He scored 13 times in 2019, and his move to Rennes was made permanent on 30th May 2019, when he became the third-largest transfer signing in the history of the club, in a deal worth 15 Million Euros.
