After two arrivals, how many departures at Olympique de Marseille?The transfer window ends on Monday evening, and movements are possible on the side of the commandery.But a priori in the direction of departures.Pablo Longoria, the president, and Jorge Sampaoli, the coach, exchange daily on this subject, and the two strong men of OM must compose with the economic reality of the club, "a difficult market", and the sports objectives.
In the event of qualification in the French Cup against Montpellier on Saturday (9 p.m.), the Marseille club would replay Tuesday against Lyon for its late match, before chaining a match every three days, at least until the end of February.And for that, you need the workforce that goes with.20 minutes takes stock in this final stretch of the transfer window.
Under the threat of a two -year recruitment ban
The news fell in the middle of winter transfer window: Olympique de Marseille is under a two -year recruitment ban, after the transfer of Pope Gueye in the summer of 2020.Watford, with whom the environment had signed a contract, before turning and engaging with Marseille, had seized FIFA in this case.Who therefore decided this ban, and a suspension of Pope Gueye of 4 months.This was finally canceled by the Sports Arbitral Tribunal (TAS), which has not yet spoken on OM call."We take note of FIFA's decision even if it is in a surprising period, in the middle of CAN and in the middle.We called on the job, it is now a legal battle.We have to stay calm and study the file well, ”said Pablo Longoria.
For whom this decision was not very important for this transfer window.
The big coast of Bamba Dieng in England
Rumors around the young striker of Olympique de Marseille are intensifying more and more.After having marked for the first time under the Marseille colors last season, Bamba Dieng, 21, scored a double against Monaco, then a superb chisel against Strasbourg.This week, he was elected player of the match in Senegal's victory against Cape Verde thanks to his goal at the very end of the match, when he had just replaced Sadio Mané.What attract the gaze of several Premier League clubs.But Pablo Longoria warned, no discussion will succeed below 10 million euros.
Alvaro, here the door
If there is "an open door", dixit Longoria, it is that for a departure from defender Alvaro Gonzalez.If the first rumors sent him on the side of Strasbourg, or Bordeaux, the Spaniard hastened to refuse these two options.He does not wish to leave OM at all, but fell in the hierarchy of the defenders and Sampaoli no longer really counts on him.
For the moment the defender posts every day on his social networks, or almost, the sunset on the Bay of Marseille to prove that he is still there, and if he had to leave the club, it would most likely be for aBack to Spain.
Duje Caleta because, another central defender placarded for refusing offers at the end of the last summer transfer window, reversed the trend.Its leaders will not give it this winter unless you receive a good offer, around 20 million euros.
Towards a loan from Luis Henrique?
Despite services that are not always successful, the young Brazilian Luis Henrique retains a good coast on the side of OM and its president."Even if it is not always in the workforce, it brings a significant physical impact.We trust Luis, he has all the characteristics to develop.There are always ups and downs, but Luis is only 20 years old and we have confidence in his natural progression, "reassured Longuoria.But at this age, players only need one thing: playing.And it is only intermittently for the young dad.What to be "open to discussion", for a possible loan.
Boubacar Kamara, status quo
The minot trained at OM arrives at the end of the contract next June and the discussions for a possible extension have never succeeded.Despite his little embodiment when he did not appear at a press conference at the end of November, Boubacar Kamara remains a great professional and he proves it every weekend with his performances."With Bouba, we discussed a lot.We have a strong relationship, everyone is in a position of respect.If there is a good proposal for the player, and the club, we will be in a position to listen to it.Otherwise we'll see in June.This position is not pleasant for the club, but it is also true that Bouba shows very great respect for this club, "considers Pablo Longoria.Indeed, a departure, free, in June, is more than likely.
No arrival without departure
"Am I greedy when I ask 4 or 5 players?"Me too, I have to win to survive here, and I prefer to exaggerate a little than being too short, "joked, half, Jorge Sampaoli, during the presentation of Sead Kolasinac.Who compensated, at least digitally, the loan of Jordan Amavi in Nice.Cédric Bakambu, he makes more than compensate for the return of Dario Benedetto in Argentina, already loaned to Elche at the start of the season.And logic should be the same for this end of transfer window.A new arrival is only possible in case of departure.
"At the digital level we are good.The arrivals of Cédric [Bakambu] and Sead [Kolasinac] have improved the workforce.This is the opinion of the staff, now I think we are good.It will depend on possible movements in the last days of the transfer window, "summed up Pablo Longoria.Among the names cited, the Udinese striker, Gerard Deulofeu in the event of the start of an offensive element, Samuel Gigot, the 28 -year -old French defender from Spartak Moscow, or the Piston de Montpellier, Junior Samba, who arrives inEnd of contract next June.SportLigue Europa Conférence : Le match OM – Karabagh sur terrain neutre à cause du pass vaccinal ?SportRC Lens – OM : Trois minutes de jeu et déjà un but… L’adaptation express de Cédric Bakambu
