The beginning of the season is difficult as far as accounting is concerned for Olympique de Marseille. After two days of championship, the men of André Villas-Boas have earned only one point out of six possible. A defeat at home against Reims (0-2) and a draw yesterday against FC Nantes (0-0) do not erase the demons of OM version 2018/2019, quite the contrary. " No, I do not think so "Replied the coach from Marseille, after the game, when asked if there will be reinforcements in the coming days on the Canebière. He has been saying things over and over again for a few days while he was expecting several arrivals in early July.
The situation of Olympique de Marseille escapes no one. A very disappointing season and lack of European Cup this year are lacking in the club's finances. But the chorus is known: you must sell before recruiting. However, Morgan Sanson, courted in England until its closure on August 8, is still there, as Florian Thauvin is the priority of Valencia. " The group must stay more or less like that, we can not be sure, but with the end of the English transfer window, I do not think the other clubs will have the ability to buy it "Explained the Portuguese coach.
An offer for Valentin Rongier
Holder in the first two eleven Christian Gourcuff in Ligue 1, facing Marseille, Valentin Rongier is among the recruits desired by the Phoenicians. And the player who has played more than 130 games with the Canaries would not be against joining his evening opponent. " Why not, it's a big club, right? He answered the question about a possible transfer. A real desire that is expressed with more or less clarity while the young man of 24 years is not destabilized according to his words at the end of the meeting: " Today, it is true that the context makes that the match falls maybe a little bit bad, but in any case, I can look at myself in the mirror. I have given the maximum of myself and we will see what will happen ".
While we saw Marseille remain inactive in the transfer market, RMC Sport reports that there is only one agreement between the two clubs to finalize the movement, while the two presidents Jacques-Henri Eyraud and Waldemar Kita would have talked a few days ago. And the latter could be around 13 million euros with bonus. But it could also take the form of a loan with an automatic purchase option. A formula already used by OM to recruit his central defender Álvaro González this summer, from Villareal. The mercato could still deliver its surprises on the side of the Canebière. What about Florian Thauvin?
