Rennes forward Romain Alessandrini has accused the club chiefs of lying to him in order to prevent him from joining Marseille.
OM made the 24-year-old winger their number one target at the start of the summer transfer window, and they had several bids rejected by their Ligue 1 rivals.
Alessandrini was keen to make a switch to Stade Velodrome, but ultimately accepted the decision to stay after he was promised a new and improved contract in Brittany.
However, he has now revealed that he feels cheated by the club chiefs and doesn’t think he can continue to give his best for les Bretons.
“The club told me they were going to amend my (contract) conditions (extension and salary increase) to make me forget about the departure to OM,” Alessandrini explained to L’Equipe.
“However, the discussion I had last Wednesday with club management was not at all what was promised.”
Romain Alessandrini arrives at Rennes last summer from Guingamp and went on to impress at Stade de la Route de Lorient, scoring 10 goals in 22 Ligue 1 matches.
He has been out with a knee injury since February, and is finally set to return into action.
