Big Thauvin Offer Could Be Coming In From Marseille


There are reports that with Marseilles cash reserves having been amply replenished by the sale of Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea for €40M (33.6M) – Marseille may now be able to make a more than decent loan offer to Newcastle for Florian Thauvin for next season.

One requirement is that they pay the full wages of the 23 year-old which previously the famous French club had been unable to do.

Florian Thauvin – wants to leave Newcastle

It could even be that Marseilles come in and try to buy back Thauvin from Newcastle in a permanent deal.

The advantage Newcastle have at the moment is that former Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa is set to be appointed the Lazio manager imminently – and the Italian club could also be ready to make an early move for Thauvin.

Thauvin has made it abundantly clear he doesn’t want to stay at Newcastle, but he is on Tyneside now since training started on Friday.

He’s also said he’s flattered by the Lazio interest which is simply code for “please come and get me.”

Rafa Benitez will take a close look at the French winger in the next few days in training and also talk to him to see if he could be useful to Newcastle in a year or so, when hopefully we are back in the Premier League.

It depends a lot on whether Thauvin would even consider that, but if he wouldn’t then Rafa could look for a permanent transfer of Thauvin this summer.

Otherwise a loan deal could be better and he could return to Newcastle next summer..

With a permanent transfer those funds could be used immediately to bring in some additional good players this summer to further strengthen the Newcastle squad.

So if Rafa decides Thauvin is not in Newcastle’s future, which has been hinted for a while now – he may go for a permanent transfer or a loan  with an option to buy from either Marseille or Lazio – or any other club interested.

Sounds good to us.

    I’m happy with strikers now I feel Perez, mitro, Armstrong and gayle are good enough IMO to win us the championship.

    Really want to see a young CB come in who would be happy to be behind Mbemba and lascelles rotating in when required. I feel dummet can offer cover for the 4th CB position (possibly mbabu too). Definately need a good left back to come in and really wanted Robertson to come but that won’t happen.

    Take the Wonga and buy Reece Oxford if we wont to build for the future. West ham would sell at around 10 mill and Definitely one for the future

    From the Beeb:
    As expected, the suspended Adil Rami and N’Golo Kante are replaced by Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko and Samuel Umtiti.

    I wouldn’t let thauvin go we only have Aarons and Ritchie for the wings which is clearly not enough. I think he has good quality and the championship could be the making of him like it was Enrique. I’m sure if he played well and the fans got behind him he wouldn’t want to leave I think he feels totally unloved which is why he wants to go.

    Replacing some suspended French bloke, this is his big chance to get Mark Hughes interested in him rather than Tony Pulis, come on Moosa have your seventh good game in a year and we might get 16M for you!!!

    West ham were reported to be willing to listen to offers over 10 mill a week ago on sky sports news , As he has just turned down another contract offer.
    Would be some signing mate if Rafa pulled this one off !!

    Basically saying Mitro and Mbemba were unfairly brought in as first choices when it was too much for them and that we should get an older number one CB and let them two fight it out to partner him, they’ll both get an excellent understanding of each others game anyway.

    Iceland to win tonight, swans main man to score the winner, sissoko to have a rubbish game so he stays with us because no one bids for him and because if that he’s has a brilliant season in the championship under Benitez.

    I really like mbemba and lascelles and I think they should both be first choice but obviously would not be disappointed if an experienced CB come in.

    Wonder if joe Gomez from Liverpool would be available for loan as he would be a good addition as can play across the back four.

    Sorry but i want us to get rid of Sissoko. Sick of him always thinking he’s better than he is. Hopefully he plays a blinder and we can sell him for over 20m and use that money wisely.

    “Could be a good week ahead.
    Couple of more players signed.”
    Okay will go with that…..

    Let’s keep politics off the blog – wait til Chilcot is published then say your piece.

    “Taffies to get knocked out of Euros.”
    So you’re not supporting our top performing UK team then ?
    But maybe Wales will be beaten finalists…

    “Misery Guts Andy Murray to get knocked out of Wimbledon.”
    So you’re not supporting our top and only world class tennis player for 80 years ?
    As Djokovic is out it would be great to have another UK grand slam winner, wouldn’t it ?

    But, you miserable old misanthrope, I can see that chunky tongue of yours wedged firmly in that blushing cheek…..
