OM is going through a very turbulent period. Between the bad performances during this pre-season, the deleterious atmosphere between Igor Tudor, the new coach, and the workforce and the controversy over the possible arrival of Jordan Veretout born of an extra-sporting affair, it is an understatement. that there is a storm warning at the Vélodrome. Transfers precisely, Pablo Longoria took advantage of the presentation of the 4 new recruits (Clauss, Suarez, Blanco and Tavares) to take stock of the transfer window of his club.
“We have a little too many players, we would like the first team group to be 22 playersassures the Marseille president in the preamble. We need players coming in, but we also have to get players out. The transfer window is open until August 31. Veretout, Sanchez, they are players of international level, very high levels, but I do not like to talk about individual players, they are currently under contract with other clubs and we must respect them.
Longoria confirms for Dieng
Jordan Veretout, despite the controversy, but also Alexis Sanchez are therefore the probable future recruits of OM, even if Longoria refused to say more. However, he warned. To accommodate new elements, you also have to make room by selling those that Tudor does not want. We think here of Jordan Amavi, put in the closet without having had a say, and especially Bamba Dieng. The striker has been placed on the transfer list as he wants to stay at the club.
According to Longoria, this choice is purely sporting on the part of the Croatian technician. “In football there is no past, it’s now, the next game, not what you did yesterday. We know the player. He has real talent, value, but we must remember the values of modern sport., he explains to evoke the case of the Senegalese international. Words that more or less seal the future of young Dieng, he whose rating is rather high on the market, especially at Benfica as we revealed.
