Marseille 'close to Velodrome deal'

Marseille's Stade Velodrome is undergoing a major redevelopment in time for Euro 2016
Marseille are unhappy about the rent being demanded for the Stade Velodrome.

Marseille mayor Jean-Claude Gaudin has said he believes the city and its football club will soon strike a deal that will enable games to take place at the Stade Velodrome after a rent dispute.

Last week, the club announced that they would play their first home game of the Ligue 1 season at opponents Montpellier's ground after refusing to meet the municipal authority's eight million-euro asking price for the 2014-15 campaign.

After suggesting a compromise deal, Gaudin is negotiating directly with Marseille owner Margarita Louis-Dreyfus and president Vincent Labrune in a bid to reach agreement.

Wiriting on Twitter, he expressed confidence that the situation could be overcome, saying: "A deal will probably be done between now and the end of the week."

After initially demanding 380,000 euros per game for use of the Velodrome -- which has been extensively refurbished in preparation for Euro 2016 -- Gaudin said he would consider dropping the fixed season fee to five million euros with an additional bonus based on gate receipts and other revenue.
