Official: Thauvin saga ends as Mexican side Tigres announce signing of winger

By Oliver Fisher -

The Florian Thauvin saga has officially come to an end as Mexican side Tigres have announced the signing of the French winger.

The Frenchmanโ€™s contract will expire at the end of the season and considering that he has scored eight goals and added eight assists this season so far itโ€™s not a surprise that clubs are interested in him, with Maldiniย himself admitting Milan were following him.

However, rumours emerged suggesting the 27-year-old was close to signing a five-year deal with Liga MX side Tigres, and now it has been confirmedโ€ฆ

    Lol whaaat? How do we lose our to Tigres?… wow Milan has fallen far.

  2. Kadal says:

    Maybe he got an advice from Gignac who gained a big success in UANL.

  3. Carlo says:

    Well there is no way we were interested in him then. Clickbait articles by the โ€œjournalistsโ€ as per usual.

    If you were Maldini and knowing how the media treats Milan, would he really give them any truth to transfer rumours. Nah.

    Not worth reading their nonsense, if they were so credible, how come not one of them knew about Mourinho going to Roma? Not one of them did.

      Lol I think you guys just can’t accept that Milan has fallen from European “superiority”.

    we’re doing good…outbid by a mexican club
    that speaks volumes of how little we can expect from the transfer window
    Elliot and Pioli should get married and head to Mars for their honeymoon

    this is interesting and shocking how much players can go down and play in mexico, very funny and silly

    Mexico REALLY?

    This says a lot for Pioli’s ACM
    Has the ACM Brand and identity fallen from the elite?

    What have Maldini & Pioli management done?

    Why did so many good player go to China? Tigres pays well

  9. Rosso says:

    Nothing to do with lowliness of Milan. Player’s choice. Don’t know about Mexico, but players regret playing in China

    SMH

    Did not see that coming. We really needed him. No way we can sign someone better, but more his loss, I mean, the Mexican league?!
