Florian Thauvin is talking about him again. Leaving Olympique de Marseille free of any contract in 2021, the 2018 world champion had chosen to follow in the footsteps of André-Pierre Gignac. Recruited by the Tigres de Monterrey, the left-hander arrived in Mexico with the desire to live the same crazy adventure that APG has been living since 2015. But if the former OM striker is now fully satisfied with his choice, not sure that Thauvin can say the same. In terms of quality of life, Thauvin and his family may have had what they wanted, but on the pitch it’s not the same story. It’s simple: since his arrival at the Felinos, the Frenchman has scored 8 goals and delivered 5 assists in 38 games, in all competitions. A somewhat light balance sheet for the highest paid player in the Mexican championship (€5 million per season). At the end of his first season in Mexico (5 goals, 3 assists in 27 games), the former Marseille winger received support from Gignac.

“The first game with us, he was good, he had gas. During a match (against the Pumas of Mexico on September 25, editor’s note), in the 15th minute, he burst into a sprint. You should also know that, every other match, we play at a different schedule, which the teams choose. For example, if you play against the Pumas, in Mexico, it’s Sunday, at noon, under 40° and with an altitude of 1,500 meters. You also have matches in Mazatlàn where you are at sea level with 90% humidity. So adaptation is complicated. Me, when I arrived, I couldn’t breathe when we were playing at altitude, I needed five minutes after an effort of 30 meters. But Flo, he’s here! He is hungry. He is happy. The talent, he has it. In important matches, he was present. »

Florian Thauvin at the heart of a controversy over the Marseillais

A loan to OM mentioned

But today, it is more difficult to defend Thauvin. And this Monday, the Mexican media Debate drops a small bomb saying that Thauvin would be very close to the exit. Its leaders would no longer be convinced of the idea of ​​​​keeping it in 2023. The club thought that the arrival of the new coach, Diego Cocca, would allow it to revive it. In vain. The Argentinian technician would not be against the departure of the Frenchman to attract other reinforcements.

Under contract until 2026, Thauvin could therefore be sent on loan. And there, Debate creates the surprise by saying that a loan to OM would be a possibility! Admittedly, Thauvin knows the Marseille club by heart and it would cost less than a transfer, but there is reason to wonder about this information. Because the Marseille supporters may not have forgotten the controversial remarks made by the player on the Marseille city. And it would be very surprising to see Thauvin return to a place where his rating is no longer in good shape…
