Football – Mercato – OM
Now that the summer transfer window is approaching, OM is already active behind the scenes. It must be said that Pablo Longoria has to arrange several projects, and in particular Frank McCourt hopes that the Olympian president will manage to complete several sales in order to save the treasury of Marseille.
Since arriving at theTO in 2016, Frank McCourt has spent a lot to strengthen the Olympic squad, and not always for the expected result. The American businessman therefore hopes to save the Marseille club’s cash without having to put his hand in the pocket, in other words through sales, an area in which the Marseille leaders have not really excelled in recent seasons. With the exception of a few nice transactions like Zambo Anguissa who had come? Fulham for €25M (amount reinvested in Kevin Strootman) or even Lucas Ocampos and Morgan Sansonboth sold for 15M€, rare are the sales that theTO financial. Last summer, despite considerable costs, alone Hiroki Sakai† Max Lopez and Dario Benedetto were sold for a total of barely about €6 million. Therefore, for the next transfer window, Frank McCourt make demands on Pablo Longoria†
McCourt hopes for at least two big sales
In fact, this summer Frank McCourt expect between two and three big sales. With this in mind, several players are involved, starting with Duje Caleta-Carwhich will be back on the market, one year later close to entry into the Eredivisie last season. But the Croatian international will not be the only one to leave. And with good reason, according to information from THE TEAM† Pope Gueye and Bamba Dieng are very popular Eredivisie and could represent good market values. There may also be a surprise since Pol Lirola, definitively transferred last summer for 13M€, is disappointing and can therefore be moved on this summer with a good offer. Finally, it will also be necessary to manage the thorny case of Arkadiusz Milik. The Polish international does not have a good relationship with Jorge Sampaoliand it will be hard to keep it if theTO does not qualify for the following Champions League† Unfortunately for the Marseillais, the first departure will probably be that of Boubacar Kamara, but it will be a free start as the young Olympian’s contract, which could have represented a very high market value, expires on June 30 and an extension is not in question. Whatever, Frank McCourt seems to have set clear conditions for: Pablo Longoria†
