Updated: Jan 16
Amidst the collapse of the French Ligue 1’s broadcast deal with the Chinese-Spanish broadcaster Mediapro the french league is expected to loose out on 3 billion euros ($3.6 million) for the 20-team league.
No doubt, the collapse of the French Ligue 1’s broadcast deal with the Chinese-Spanish broadcaster Mediapro will have a devastating financial impact. The deal was worth 3 billion euros ($3.6 million) for the 20-team league.
Mediapro has already missed scheduled payments on October of 172 million euros ($209 million) to televise games on the Telefoot network. Another for 152.5 million euros ($185 million) in December 2020.
With this substantial loss in capital, many French teams will not be able to turn down offers for their players.
Here are 3 players that clubs should be looking at to boost their ranks:

1. Eduardo Camavinga | Age: 17 | Position: Center Midfield
Club: Rennes FC
Compared to: Paul Pogba
Potential Destinations: Real Madrid, Barcelona
The first obvious choice is the future baller himself. Camavinga is the youngest ever player to play for Rennes and France senior team(17). Clubs like Ral Madrid and Barcelona should look to rejuvenate their ageing midfield with the 17-year-old French sensation. Although he won’t be cheap if any club can secure his signature for 60 to 80 million euros, their midfield problems will be solved for at least 10 good years & that is money well spent.
2. Boubacar Kamara | Age: 21 | Position: Center back/Defensive midfielder
Compared to: Thiago Silva
Potential Destinations: Chelsea, Manchester City, AC Milan
Joining Marseille at the age of 5, Kamara has featured regularly for the club last season. Playing regularly as a centre back but also occasionally slots in as a defensive midfielder and sometimes as a fullback. Kamara is well sought after and his versatility is a great tool for a club’s arsenal.
3. Florian Thauvin | Age: 27 | Position: Left/Right Winger
Compared to: Suso, Nicolas Pepe
Potential Destinations: AC Milan
Former Newcastle flop, Thauvin has now emerged as one of the brightest attacking players at New Castle United. Finishing as the top scorer in 2017/18 & 2018/19 season’s consecutive. This season Thauvin has scored 6 goals and provided further 6 assists. Perhaps it’s time for a much-needed step up for Thauvin. A bid in the region of 25 million euros should be enough for Marseille to consider selling him.
