Thauvin towards a return to Ligue 1!

Florian Thauvin could return to Ligue 1 in the coming weeks. Clubs are interested, but not OM…

Florian Thauvin is not more fulfilled than that in Serie A with Udinese and is aiming for a return to France. According to information from Foot Mercato, the 30-year-old French international has made a comeback in Ligue 1 his priority in the coming weeks, during the winter transfer window. After having already tried to return to his native country when he played in Mexico, the former Olympique de Marseille player this time seems to have a little more contacts and openings in France.

Appearing 17 times (11 starts) with Udine this season, without particularly shining there, Thauvin should not interest OM during the transfer window. The Marseille club, which he had left in depression by his own admission, was in any case not one of his targets, even if we imagine that this would change in the event of a phone call from the new sports advisor Mehdi Benatia …

Rennes, Lyon or Montpellier on pole?

If he seems to have courtiers in the Bundesliga, a championship in which he has never played, unlike the Premier League and Serie A, there are touches with French teams. Their identity has not yet filtered out, but we can imagine that teams looking for offensive reinforcements to find a ranking a little more worthy of their status will seek to repatriate “Flotov”, author of 88 goals in all competitions with Marseille.

Stade Rennais, 10th, where his friend Steve Mandanda plays, or Olympique Lyonnais, 15th, whose new sports director David Friio was until recently an employee of OM, can make sense. Ditto for Montpellier, not far from his former stronghold on Canebière, which occupies 12th place in the championship and could help Thauvin restore his image and revive a career that has been fallow since his departure from OM.
