Want-Away Menez Lured Back Home

By Daniel Gutman -

The former PSG fringe player has made it known through his agent that he wants to leave, but few teams are lining up for the man who netted a spectacular 16 Serie A goals two seasons ago.

Why? The Frenchman’s multiple injuries and his consequent inability to ever establish himself in his second season with Milan has driven off many of the teams who initially appeared to be interested.

This applies to the Chinese clubs he turned down during the winter,  as well as Liverpool. Milan still want to get rid of his €5 million salary, but so far, according to L’Equipe, only Ligue 1 clubs have knocked at Milan’s door.

Guingamp is the first in line, though Menez wants to wait for a more prestigious club like Marseille, Nice or Lyon.

Unlike Guingamp, none of them have made an offer, but Marseille have long followed the 29-year-old. Nice would need to replace Hatem Ben Arfa, whilst Lyon could also need someone to replace Alexandre Lacazette.
