Newcastle’s demands for Florian Thauvin are proving too great for Marseille

Newcastle United’s demands to Marseille in the latter’s pursuit of French winger Florian Thauvin are proving too great at the time of writing for a deal to be possible, according to L’Équipe.

The Magpies would prefer to sell Thauvin outright, failing that they would go for a loan with a €15m obligatory buy clause.

Neither of those two options are viable for Marseille in their currently financially-stricken state.
