Report: John Guidetti offered huge contract by Marseille ahead of possible move

Marseille Velodrome

Celtic striker John Guidetti has reportedly been offered a deal worth around £60,000-per-week in order to join Marseille.

According to The Scotsman, Marseille have offered John Guidetti a huge contract in order to make a summer move to the French side.

Guidetti, 22, is currently on loan at Celtic from Manchester City, and appears to have just rediscovered his goalscoring touch at the right time.

The Swedish international arrived at Celtic in blistering form, scoring 10 goals in 11 games and becoming an instant Celtic Park hero.

Yet recently, the goals had dried up, with Guidetti going ten games without finding the back of the net, before scoring a dramatic equaliser against Inter Milan in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Guidetti followed that up with the third goal in Celtic's 4-0 win over Hamilton Academical today, with manager Ronny Deila certainly hoping his struggles in front of goal have ended as the Bhoys look for silverware in four competitions.

However, their hopes of keeping him on a long-term deal may have suffered a blow as The Scotsman report that Marseille have offered Guidetti a bumper £11.5m deal to join the club when his Manchester City contract expires at the end of this season, which would involve wages of around £60,000-per-week.

That's likely to be far more than Celtic can offer right now, with Marseille knowing that French international Andre-Pierre Gignac is likely to leave at the end of his contract this summer.

Guidetti may be seen as the ideal replacement for the French club, though there is no indication whether he would accept such a move - leaving Celtic still in the race for his signature.
