Cheslin kolbe, one of the best backs in the world today, could be the protagonist of the pass of the year in the Top 14 from France. According to local media, the wing of South Africa have a chance to leave Toulouse and go to Toulon.
The president of Toulon, Bernard Lemaître confirmed the negotiations between the two clubs: “The only thing I can say at this point is that the two clubs are studying the feasibility of the operation, together and with the player.”
An agreement between the two clubs will be necessary for any departure from Kolbe to Toulon, as the South African world champion does not have a contract with Toulouse until 2023.
The player and his environment have been discussing a salary increase with the Toulouse leaders for several months, despite his status as the highest salary in the squad of the French and European champions.
“It may be that Toulouse and Toulon reach an agreement. For now, it seems premature to me,” Lemaître said.
From Toulouse, the Argentine team Mallía and Chocobares, nothing was said. According to local media, an attempt was made to contact the President, Didier Lacroix, but did not reach him.
