While Olympique de Marseille face a very complicated financial situation, their best asset should leave the Ciel et Blancs for free at the end of the season.
The more the weeks go by, the more the departure of Florian Thauvin of the’Olympic Marseille, at the end of the contract next June, appears inevitable. “Florian Thauvin is an important part of the club’s heritage. It’s hard to lose a player like Florian Thauvin because he’s at the end of his contract. This is why we all have to work, club, player, player’s entourage to find the best solution, ”explained Pablo Longoria this fall.
The situation nevertheless appears to be deadlocked and no solution seems to be able to be found. As much because the Olympian club, given the financial crisis shaking French football, is not prepared to offer the French world champion an extension under the same conditions as currently as because the former Bastiais seems decided to retry his luck abroad where theAC Milan where the Sevilla FC have been making eyes on her for months.
Eyraud was ready to refuse 80 M €
To believe Téléfoot, the departure of Florian Thauvin at the end of the season is also recorded. OM would not be against saving a few million euros by selling it this winter, but the interested party wants to go to the end of his contract and his suitors also seem to prefer to wait until next summer to enlist the native of Orleans, even if it means offering him a substantial signing bonus. Enough to obviously give birth to regrets in the Olympian camp, unable to secure the situation with its best asset.
And all the more so when we remember the interest aroused by the Marseille player two years ago when he was announced on the shelves of Bayern Munich, Juventus Turin or several English top names. “80 million euros for Thauvin? I don’t even look. That’s not the point at all for me. I think he is aware that OM have given him a lot and made sure he is in the best conditions. I think this is not the end of the story. There may even be even more beautiful pages to write, ”Jacques-Henri Eyraud had then launched.
