Florian Thauvin wants to return to Marseille, here is why…

Speaking to Le Phocéen today, L’Équipe journalist Mathieu Gregoire has explained why French winger Florian Thauvin wants to quit Newcastle for Marseille this summer.

It turns out that his girlfriend and former Miss Côte D’Azur Charlotte Pirroni is pushing her boyfriend Florian Thauvin to return to where they met in Provence, suggesting that she is not enjoying life on Tyneside.

In addition, Thauvin has this unfinished business feeling with the way in which his time at Marseille went and for that reason he wants a move to happen.

Newcastle want to sell the player outright for at least €12m, but Marseille can, in their current state, only afford a loan deal with an option.
