The arrival of André-Pierre Gignac in Mexico, in 2015, after five years at loon, had been a surprise. That of Florian Thauvin, potentially, would be even more surprising. And yet… Like “APG”, it is on the Monterrey side, among the famous Tigers, that the current Marseilles-wisp, at the end of the Olympian lease, could land soon. Local information confirmed this Thursday by La Provence.
In Mexico, it is already clear that the 2018 world champion will join his counterpart Gignac, who has become a real idol in Monterrey. “ The Tigers are breaking the market again! The bomb thundered! It’s historic! The current world champion, Florian Thauvin, will be a new feline player. Welcome to the most passionate team in Mexico “, Already enthuses influencer Pello Maldonado, known in Mexico for his connections with the Tigers.
“A hard blow” for OM
The Italian transfer window specialist, Nicolo Schira specifies that a five-year contract is already ready for the French striker, with the promise of a remuneration of five million euros per year – salary that cannot offer OM to Thauvin. ” The agreement is very close, announces Provence. A blow for the Marseille club which will therefore see one of its best players leave for free. Long followed by AC Milan (Italy) and Sevilla (Spain), he had so far received only two offers, from Crystal Palace (England) and the Tigers, so. »
