Florian Thauvin told ‘you are my priority’ by Elie Baup

RMC Sport’s transfer window correspondent Mohamed Bouhafsi has revealed to us on the Get French Football News Show this morning that Florian Thauvin has been told Marseille manager Elie Baup at the ‘Canal + Football Oscars’ that he is Marseille’s main target before the window closes. 

‘Florian Thauvin wouldn’t like to go to England because he feels he is very young. But when he saw that Lille are not playing Champions League and Payet and Digne are leaving he changed his point of view.’

‘He spoke with Elie Baup at the ‘Canal + Football Oscars’ and he told Thauvin ‘you are my priority.’

‘Marseille have another €10m to spend in the transfer window. They have already made 2 offers this window.’ 

But my contact at Lille told me it is not possible to sell Thauvin to Marseille.’ 

‘Only the very difficult possibility to sell Thauvin to England.’

Mohamed believes the conversation between Thauvin and Elie Baup went somewhat like this:

‘Elie Baup: ‘Why did you sign for Lille in January? I am interested in you.’

‘Thauvin: ‘Rudi Garcia spoke to me, Lille have a good team’

‘Elie Baup: ‘What are you going to do now.’ 

Thauvin: Did not answer.’
