Florian Thauvin has been released from his contract by the Monterrey Tigers. His return to France is planned and the OL destination is already making a lot of noise. Especially since OM no longer want it!
A tricolor world champion, who is not yet 30 years old – this will be the case this Thursday – and who is free of any contract: this could make a lot of French and European clubs salivate. This is in any case the situation of Florian Thauvin, who saw his contract end abruptly with the Monterrey Tigers. Like his compatriot Andy Delort, “Flotov” did not manage to experience the same success as André-Pierre Gignac, a true legend in Mexico. The French striker therefore left the club he had joined after completing his contract with OM, his “heart club” for which he had not brought in a single penny.

Now looking for a new project, Thauvin will appear in the sights of many recruiters, knowing that the left-hander will be available for zero euros. As soon as the end of his contract with the Tigers was announced, his name was whispered to Olympique Lyonnais on social networks. No official information in this sense, but many nods to the management of OL to look into the question of the 2018 world champion. First reason for this, OM do not want to recover him and the let it be known. According to La Provence, the idea of re-signing Florian Thauvin, which will be the third time after his failed spell at Newcastle, is not at all in Pablo Longoria’s plans.

A change of Olympic then? In an arrival that would be at least on the level of “betrayal” of that of Mathieu Valbuena at theOL ? This greatly amused the followers of the Rhone club, even if some also imagine it as concrete on the sporting level, with a first-rate reinforcement in the workforce of Laurent Blanc. “ You can smell the Thauvin at OL.. it stinks a lot! », « Hey OL team, it could be interesting to check Florian Thauvin », « The odds of « Thauvin signs at OL » is 1.09 », « You can feel it Leicester which stings us Tetê and OL who signs Thauvin in stride? “,” OL, when is Thauvin’s announcement due? “, underlined the Internet users from Lyon, quite divided on this return to France of a pure Marseillais. But at a time when Laurent Blanc’s training is struggling to take off in Ligue 1 and will cause the loss of a winger in the person of Karl-Toko Ekambi, the arrival of a free player of this level will perhaps be studied in the next few hours by the OL recruitment cell.
