Montpellier reject opening bid from Gladbach for Gaëtan Laborde

Ligue 1 side Montpellier have rejected an opening offer from Bundesliga club Gladbach for 27-year-old French attacker Gaëtan Laborde, according to L’Équipe and Mohamed Toubache-TER.

The opening offer is understood to have been €12m + €2m in bonuses. MHSC will almost certainly sell the attacking talent this summer, needing to raise funds as much as ever other Ligue 1 club impacted by the economic downturn caused by COVID-19 and the TV rights deal fiasco.

Zenit St Petersburg have also made their interest known for the talent who has 15 goals and 8 assists in Ligue 1 this season.
