They’re saying that talks are at an advanced stage here, and that the fee will be between 15- 20 million euros.
Apparently Marseille want the cash to fund the purchase of the Polish striker from Napoli, Milik I think.

Mark, any idea why he was substituted so early in his last game, tactics or was he or the club protecting the deal.

I did see that Scotty, they also took Thauvin off, another who could well be leaving in January, as his contract is up this Summer.
I didn’t actually see the game, so I’m unable to say whether it was tactical, or if the 2 of them just weren’t playing that well, or if it was linked to the likelihood of them leaving the club.
I would just say though, Thauvin and Sanson are 2 of Marseille’s best players and if the deal for Sanson goes through, we will be getting a very good player indeed, who I think is tailor made for the Premier league.

I’d rather have the money go on Milik, goals goals goals, and we ain’t exactly short in midfield, striker is the priority imo


18 Jan 2021 22:01:09
Milik hasn’t been linked Ally, this is not a choice of Sanson or Milik, he isn’t on the table.

With Wesley coming back and Watkins proving a success so far, another striker will be far from a priority.

Gotta disagree Chris, and £40M striker becomes available at a knockdown price because his contract is nearly up, only 26 years old so possibly his best years are ahead of him, he’s a carbon copy of Miroslav Klose imo. I like Ollie Watkins and I’m rooting for him but c’mon, think Milik is too good an opportunity to pass up, Sanson would only make sense if we were sending Barkley back or had no intention of buying him from Chelsea at the end of the season. Jury is still out on Wesley, I hope he comes back and smashes it but for around £10M for Milik, ain’t going to hurt having an actual proven goal machine in the squad, am I wrong?


19 Jan 2021 11:16:24
Don’t think Malik is going to happen because we don’t have an interest.

19 Jan 2021 11:17:30
I think we have to trust the management’s judgement Ally, they’ve done ok so far haven’t they?
If Wesley comes back and does well, we won’t need another striker, if he doesn’t, then the situation will probably be resolved in the Summer.

19 Jan 2021 11:57:44
Just reading through the replies, maybe Sanson IS the replacement for Luiz and maybe he’ll be gone in Jan? They got until June to invoke the clause, doesn’t mean they can’t invoke it before then? If that’s the case then I’ll 100% trust the management’s judgment, but since the end of the last window we’ve 90% of the time been saying we need a striker, Josh King (who we’ve been ‘linked’ with) or Milik this window, I know who I’d choose. 🤔 or put it another way, get Milik in on cheap, strengthen in the other areas in the summer. We’ve got a ‘world class’ keeper, Jack who is nearly so, and in Milik we’d have another, he’s really that good, just look at his previous and current clubs, Ajax and Napoli, shouldn’t we be trying for players of that caliber? I want us to win trophies, not the awards for ‘nicest and most humble team’ who have a good go at it, Eye of the Tiger, sweep the leg 😂


19 Jan 2021 12:12:23
I’ve just read on Sports Fr. Ally, that Marseille are having second thoughts about Milik, they are apparently questioning his fragility, due to the fact he’s had 2 serious knee ligament ruptures🤔.

{Ed002's Note - Whatever happens with Milik tomorrow has no relevance to what happens with Sanson.}

19 Jan 2021 12:46:41
That’s comforting to know Ed, so hopefully the deal for Sanson will go ahead regardless then.

{Ed002's Note - Right now the lady from Marseille is talking with another English side about a different player but she, nor Longoria, are talking to any other clubs about Sanson at this time - although there is interest from elsewhere. Aston Villa need to meet or get very close to the Marseille asking price, agree on a payment schedule and put a package on the table for the player and Pini to accept. Then it can be completed.}

19 Jan 2021 13:15:14
Cheers Ed, I would imagine the other player is Florian Thauvin. Wouldn’t mind him as well but his wages which appear to be somewhat higher than Sansons would be a problem perhaps.

{Ed002's Note - No not Thauvin - he is subject to a little trip to Italy tomorrow. It is related to a player they want to buy.}

19 Jan 2021 13:35:46
That’s what I was getting at John, Sanson has no bearing on Milik, and as of yet, we have no interest in Milik. So it’s a none starter.
