Rennes has officially confirmed the departure of their Norwegian left-back, Birger Meling, to FC Copenhagen in Denmark. The news was initially shared by Rennes’ coach, Bruno Genesio, on Sunday, and has now been solidified by the club’s official statement on Monday.
Meling, a 28-year-old international player, joined Rennes in 2021 and has quickly made an impact during his time in Brittany. However, the talented left-back has now decided to embark on a new chapter in his career, signing a contract with FC Copenhagen that will keep him at the club until 2027.
This transfer marks an exciting opportunity for Meling to showcase his skills in a new league and adapt to the challenges of Danish football. FC Copenhagen, known for their competitive nature and strong presence in the Danish Superliga, will undoubtedly provide a platform for Meling to continue his development as a player.
Rennes, on the other hand, will bid farewell to a valuable member of their squad. Meling’s departure will leave a void in the left-back position, and it will be interesting to see how the team fills this gap in the upcoming transfer window.
The move to FC Copenhagen signifies Meling’s ambition to seek new challenges and push himself to new heights. With his experience and versatility, he will undoubtedly be an asset to his new team, contributing to their pursuit of success both domestically and potentially on the European stage.
