Milan: Maldini admits interest in Thauvin

Milan technical director Paolo Maldini admitted Marseille midfielder Florian Thauvin could be ‘an interesting’ target ‘from an economic point of view’.

The Rossoneri have been linked with the 27-year-old winger, who has contributed three goals and five assists in nine Ligue 1 games this term.

Maldini pointed out that Thauvin’s contract expires in June 2021 and could be of interest for the Diavolo.

“He’s player who will be at the end of the contract, so he’s an interesting player from an economic point of view,” Maldini told Telefoot.

“He’s a player of a high level. It’s not exactly the prototype of the players we have brought here in these two years, regarding his age.

“What he always says, however, is that the right mix is created by many young players with some more experienced who can give a little more.

“Surely, it’s a profile that must be followed.”
