AC Milan have already reached an agreement with winger Florian Thauvin over personal terms, it is claimed, which has angered Marseille.
Calciomercato.com reported earlier in the month that Milan have tabled a four-year contract worth €3m net per season. Milan’s idea is to bring him in for next season as they don’t want to upset the balance that the current wingers have.
Paolo Maldini seemingly publicly declared interest in Thauvin just before that report came out, much to the annoyance of Marseille boss Andre Villas-Boas, which seems to have caused media reports to have gone quiet.
In his latest editorial for TMW, Enzo Bucchioni claims that Thauvin already has an agreement with Milan for June, which has irritated Marseille.
It cannot be ruled out therefore that the Rossoneri management offer a few million to try and get the 27-year-old in during the January transfer window.
