Marseille Market – Tiémoué Bakayoko, Jonathan Clauss and William Saliba: OM to full questions

Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso in Lyon, Takumi Minamino and soon Breel Embolo in Monaco, Mohamed Bayo and Rémy Cabella in Lille: while PSG pursuers sharpen their weapons, last season’s runner-up, OM, s’ watertight in the transfer market. which has not yet begun. Samuel Gigot has landed but his arrival is tied since this winter, Chancel Mbemba and Isaak Touré have increased the contingent of central defenders but it is difficult to say that the Marseille squad has been strengthened this summer.

Because William Saliba and Boubacar Kamara, two of the top three players in the 2021/2022 season, left just like Steve Mandanda, so prized in the final sprint. In short, while OM will reconnect with the Champions League, Marseille, whose squad is still too small to meet the deadlines that await it, is not ready three weeks before the resumption. This Sunday several archives have emerged in the French and British media and feed questions as time runs out.

It is very blurry

Priority to the correct position of the piston, Jonathan Clauss, despite his desire to join Marseille, is still far from OM. Encouraged by fragile finances, Pablo Longoria can not spend at all costs and for lack of means, the French international, whose profile, however, fits perfectly with what Igor Tudor wants to launch, could escape the Marseille . According to L’Equipe, the club is preparing a third offer after offering 6 million euros plus a bonus. Lens expects 10 to lose the last year of his contract with the right piston. OM has already launched a plan B.

In the left piston position, L’Equipe announces it Nuno Tavares and the Marseille club have reached an agreement but Arsenal have yet to be convinced. Fabrizio Romano recalled on Saturday evening that no agreement was reached between the two clubs. Although the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko from the City in London could unlock the archive in the coming days.

Another goal while the midfield is an open construction site: Tiemoue Bakayoko. Foot Mercato understands that the former Monegasque and Marseille have agreed a four-year contract while neither Chelsea, his club nor AC Milan, where he is on loan until June 2023, want to keep him. But Igor Tudor, visibly unimpressed by his profile, would block the arrival of the French international for the time being. Therefore, the case is not yet complete.

It smells bad

As he returned to Arsenal, Guillem Saliba it still populates the fantasies of the supporters and leaders of Marseilles who dream of seeing him return. The case is clear: Saliba wants a starting place so as not to compromise his chances of going to the World Cup with the Blues. Will Arsenal trust him or can Marseille still be an option? On Saturday, in a friendly, Saliba started the match against Everton and played 71 minutes. “It’s okay to go back and start the preseason,” the former Stéphanois said on Arsenal’s website. And if Mikel Arteta explained that he could not guarantee him a starting place, the Spanish coach also announced that he had Saliba for next season. In short, it looks like the doors are closing on the side of the Gunners.

On the right track

To replace Steve Mandanda, Marseille may, this time, conclude. According to L’Équipe, OM is interested Ruben Blanco, under contract with Celta de Vigo until 2027, to replace him with Pau López. The Spanish club are said to be open to a loan, but first look for a starting goalkeeper before opening the door to Rubén Blanco.

The roads are numerous but all still face more or less insurmountable obstacles. There’s an unencouraging situation for an OM that seems to stagnate when last season should have given wings to the summer transfer window.
