Mercato OM: Already the end of the crazy Ziyech rumor?

Olympique de Marseille would have checked the name of Hakim Ziyech according to the media 90min. Fabrizio Romano has more info regarding the Moroccan…

In search of recruits for several positions, OM are multiplying leads according to the international media. In England, Hakim Ziyech was announced in the sights of Pablo Longoria for this summer. The Marseille president should however have difficulty convincing him and paying his salary, despite the green light from the DNCG.

But according to the very well informed Fabrizio Romano, the entourage of Hakim Ziyech is rather in discussions with another club: AC Milan. The Rossoneri would follow him for a long time and would not be against his arrival. The discussions would continue… No mention however of an interest of OM in this file.

“Hakim Ziyech’s agents have already had direct discussions with the AC Milan board. Ziyech would be happy to join Milan. It is rumored that Chelsea and Tuchel are ready to let him go if the right conditions are guaranteed. Ziyech has been on AC Milan’s roster for a long time – talks continue. » Fabrizio Romano – Source: Twitter

Important to know why you want to be there, you have to be clear, sincere, that’s the most important

In any case, it would be an XXL track at Champions League level so as not only to make up the numbers in this competition… A bit like Jorge Sampaoli reminded him in a press conference before the end of the season.

” My future ? I do not know. I’m thinking of the goal we have in front of us. Do we want C1 for money or to be competitive? Important to know why you want to be there, you have to be clear, sincere, that’s the most important thing. There will be the possibility of creating or not creating a Champions League team. Be there for 4 or 6 games and stop or continue in this competition. Then the project will be decided based on these bases. Resources commensurate with club capabilities. If we play only to go unnoticed it is not logical. The critics will always be there. We have to be very clear about what we want. If the objective is more economical, it brings pressure that is not necessary, that’s what happened during the last campaign. The 60,000 people will still be there. The team, the coach and the leaders must follow”. Jorge Sampaoli – source: Press conference (05/19/2022)

Mercato OM: A way out for Bakambu?

Olympique de Marseille has recruited Cédric Bakambu and for the moment it is not a great success. According to the Turkish media Spor, the Congolese is being tracked by Besiktas!

OM Montpellier Cédric Bakambu

During the winter transfer window, Olympique de Marseille recruited two free players: Sead Kolasinac and Cedric Bakambu. The two men did not really succeed in convincing the supporters as well as the management… Provence announced a few weeks ago that OM wanted to get rid of Pol Lirola and the Bosnian left side.

Regarding Bakambu, no real news on his future before this Sunday when a Turkish media announces that Besiktas wants to recover him. Indeed, according to information from Yenisafakspor, the club would appreciate his profile and would welcome his arrival.

Longoria has surrounded itself with the best in the organization chart

In addition to recruitment, OM will also have to move forward with the departure of certain players who have become undesirable… Cédric Bakambu has not really succeeded in convincing in 6 months and has a large salary which weighs heavily on OM’s finances.

For this, Pablo Longoria has surrounded himself with new people in the club’s organization chart. The Marseille president spoke about it in an interview with the Olympique de Marseille media… In particular on the arrival of Javier Ribalta as director of football.

“Javier is one of the most talented people in football. I strongly believe in the incarnation of projects by young leaders who already have a lot of experience. He has demonstrated for several years already, at the top level, his ability to adapt to all the evolutions of football. This capacity is essential to have results, which he obtained in the various championships for which he worked. The work he has done at Juventus Turin is extraordinary. He was able to demonstrate creativity and perseverance. Javier has had my full confidence since our first discussions on the evolution and future of football. We share the same vision and we guarantee to put in place the best strategy for the club. » Pablo Longoria – Source: Official website

Mercato OM: We know in which club Saliba will play next year!

Olympique de Marseille will not be able to keep William Saliba next season? This is announced by English journalist Chris Wheatley, a follower of Arsenal and who claims that he is close to an extension with the Gunners.

William Saliba has managed to revive with Olympique de Marseille! The French central defender even knew the international jersey thanks to his exceptional season with OM. Passed by OGC Nice and Saint-Etienne in France, he still belongs to Arsenal and should even stay there.

Indeed, as announced by English journalist Chris Wheatley, who follows Arsenal, the Gunners are negotiating with Saliba’s entourage for a contract extension… The journalist goes even further by stating that he will be an Arteta player for the season. next.

“William Saliba contract talks are going positively with the Frenchman expected to return for pre-season training soon. The French defender will be at Arsenal for the 2022-23 season, as confirmed by manager Mikel Arteta and those close to the player. Chris Wheatley – Source: Twitter

It disappoints me a bit of Saliba

A few days ago Jean Charles de Bono, former OM player and FCM consultant, mentioned the Saliba file. The latter had explained that he wanted to try to win at Arsenal next season.

“It disappoints me a bit with Saliba, hearing you say that because he proclaimed his love for OM so much, the last match when he returned to the field with euphoria, the next day or the day after he said “I want to stay at OM, it’s a club where it vibrates, there is the Champions League”. And there is a reversal of the situation. I don’t mind Arteta being able to say “Saliba now we want to keep him”. For Saliba I think it’s more a source of pride to want to return to Arsenal as he has played 0 games there. To say to myself today I have matured, I have played 52 games with Olympique de Marseille as a starter, I want to show my qualities at Arsenal and in England, I am an international. I think for him it’s a challenge. Finally, he shouldn’t have advanced too much at the end of the championship with Olympique de Marseille, that’s where I’m a little disappointed because he’s a player I admire and like very much. . » Jean-Charles de Bono Sources: Marseille Football Club (06/06/2022)
