Two years after leaving OM for Aston Villa, will Morgan Sanson take advantage of the winter transfer window to return to Ligue 1? The French midfielder (28 years old, under contract until 2025) is currently in a situation of failure with the Villans where he has appeared only once this season (one minute of play against Manchester United on 6 last November).
His previous exercise – 10 Premier League matches – had already left him hungry, and the former Montpellier player now seems to have answered the question: he wants to leave the current 11th in the Premier League in January with a return to the French Championship as a priority.
A problematic salary
Several contacts have already been made, and one of the avenues explored currently leads at FC Nantes. Eager to strengthen his midfield, coach Antoine Kombouaré would greatly appreciate his profile. Two problems remain despite everything: the question of his short-term competitiveness and that of his salary. In England, Sanson would receive more than 350,000 euros gross monthly. He would be prepared to make a financial effort to facilitate the discussions.
