Lille have authorised Thiago Maia to travel to Brazil to complete Flamengo move

L’Équipe report that Ligue 1 side Lille have today authorised for midfielder Thiago Maia to travel to Brazil to complete a loan with option to buy move to newly cash-rich Flamengo.

LOSC bought the player for €14m, but the option to buy the deal is believed to be slightly less than €9m. Flamengo will however pay the totality of the player’s salary during the 6-month loan period.

Maia’s departure will likely see 19-year-old Cheikh Niasse receive a promotion to the Lille first team. Niasse has been approached by both Watford and Rennes about a possible deal, but Les Dogues intend to keep him.
