The arrival of Sochaux midfielder Camel Meriem at Bordeaux is a major concern for Batlles who now looks likely to spend most of his time on the bench.
The former Toulouse man is now looking for a move and a deal of around é¼1.5 million could see him moving to Rennes in the near future.
Rennes coach Christian Gourcuff has been trailing Montpellier striker Maoulida for some time and is well aware that the club are looking to sell him to ease their money worries.
Montpellier president Louis Nicollin has already said that the club regularly have to sell their best young players to raise enough cash to stay afloat, and is looking to cash in on Maoulida.
Gourcuff has already swooped to sign Olivier Sorlin from Montpellier and is hoping that he can now tempt Maoulida to join him in Rennes.
