Bordeaux want Menez but…

Bordeaux are interested in Milan forward Jeremy Menez, but he waits for Monaco or Marseille.

The French international has been put up for sale by the Rossoneri, but has so far been unable to agree a deal with a new club.

Menez wants to return to Ligue 1, so rejected a move to China, but the 29-year-old also turned down Guingamp.

Now L’Équipe is reporting that Bordeaux are interested in bringing the former Paris Saint-Germain player back to France, but his €2.5m annual wages are problematic.

Menez is therefore focused on other options, namely Monaco and Marseille, both of whom are more likely to be able to afford his wages.

L’OM are thought to be willing to offer €2m per season, but that would be dependent on the player resolving his contract with Milan, as they won’t pay a transfer fee.

Monaco would have no problem in paying what the Diavolo are asking, but they’d have to sell attacking players before they could buy.
