FYI: I typed this up yesterday and somehow managed to not hit publish on it. Hence the title.
I can confirm that a few Ligue 1 rivals would love to capture Nantes midfielder Alejandro Bedoya, so the club is preparing an improved contract offer for him to peruse once his World Cup adventure ends. I cannot confirm - so don't tattoo this on my forehead - but there is reason to believe that on top of that interest Marseille are also lurking without making contact yet.
So again, yeah, there is some detectable smoke... but as things stand, you should probably not expect eventual fire. File these under "Nice to know, but... " - and perhaps get ready for a bit more of that type soon.
