There has been much discussion in France as to how serious Inter’s interest in French midfielder Florian Thauvin has been. The player himself claimed that the Nerazzurri had put a proposal forward worth around €25 million. After recent difficulties with coach Bielsa it now seems that there was not any bid from Inter at all. Indeed the Marseille hierarchy claim they’ve had no approaches for the player whatsoever. Piero Ausilio has never had access to that kind of cash and although it’s plausible Inter enquired on the player it is ludicrous to think any offer of that amount was made.
