  • Nantes is a horrible club who likes their own interest ahead of their players, before afcon if Marseille or Newcastle had brought a bid of 9 million euros they would have gladly accepted but now they are demanding for 20 million, this is the same way they chased Newcastle years ago, last winter Leeds and now Marseille are on the brink of submitting a bid of 9 million euros but they are insisting on 20. Until they lose interest in him just like Villarreal held chukuwueze firm Liverpool Even after submitting a bid of 35 million euros, a year later they are willing to let him go for 20 million. Why have they held him the last year ? He could have been the successor to Salah and he would be allowed to leave for free and samuel to take up the role. Things just doesn’t go right for the Nigerian players hopefully osimhen and Ndidi will change that by going to either real Madrid or Bayern Munich
