Newcastle launch bid for Lille midfielder Thiago Maia

Newcastle United have launched a bid for Lille midfielder Thiago Maia.

La Voix Du Nord says while the transfer market officially opens this Saturday, Newcastle have made an offer to Lille for the Brazilian midfielder.

The English club, coached by Rafael Benitez and who finished 10th in the Premier League championship last month, has made an offer, which would have rejected by Lille.

Despite a disappointing season, Thiago Maia, who has played 34 Ligue 1 games this season, remains Lille's best asset because of his age (21), his potential and the duration of his contract to 2022.
