Reports In France Of £12m Bid By Newcastle United
As we move into the craziest part of the craziest transfer window ever, certainly for Newcastle fans, there are reports coming out of France claiming that United have bid £12m for a midfielder.
Similar to Marseille’s offer, it is reported that Newcastle’s bid is an initial amount with added instalments if the player reaches certain targets, equalling an eventual £12m.
Lille are reportedly desperate not to sell to a domestic rival and Newcastle made a bid in January only for the then Bastia midfielder to choose Lille over Newcastle.
Thauvin has missed training in attempting to force a move with promises from the club that he will be fined.
If there is genuine interest from Newcastle then it will be interesting to see if United would appeal now for a player who it is claimed is desperate to join Marseille.
