The transfer window is always a delicate subject. It is for this reason that Jorge Sampaoli slammed the door of OM. Not satisfied with his management’s transfer window plans, the Argentine coach decided to leave. And it is Igor Tudor who will take his place. Olympique de Marseille could even formalize his appointment during the day.
Suffice to say that Pablo Longoria was able to bounce back quickly, but on the side of the supporters, we are still waiting for recruits. If Gigot and Touré are already officially Marseille players and will come to reinforce a rear guard which needed new blood, it is also necessary to recruit in the middle and in attack. And obviously, it is in Italy that the Marseille president intends to recruit and offer his first two recruits to his new coach.
Two experienced free players
As indicated by the Corriere dello Sport, Olympique de Marseille is of course on Dries Mertens. The 35-year-old Belgian striker, at the end of his contract in Naples, is coveted all over the world, since Monaco and other clubs in Mexico or in the Gulf countries are on the spot. His priority would be to stay in Neapolitan lands and sign a new contract with the Partenopei, but the Marseillais are pushing.
The other track of the moment leads us to Matias Vecino, the Uruguayan midfielder of Inter. The information is thus launched by El Desmarque, the Spanish media, which explains that the Phocaeans are Valencia’s main competitor for the 30-year-old player, who has also been free of any contract since the end of June. The Marseillais would thus have been informed in recent weeks. Two experienced players who could be useful for the Champions League.
