In addition to that clause, it is said that Florian would have a salary of 4.8 million euros per year for the next 5 years with the UANL Tigres.
This juicy and comfortable contract offered by the UANL Tigers ended up convincing Thauvin, who had offers from English Premier League teams, such as Leicester City and Crystal Palace.
Thauvin’s arrival could take place in late May or early June, once his participation with Olympique de Marseille in France’s Ligue 1 ends this season, which has two rounds left.
