Cédric Bakambu on the departure of OM?

The summer transfer window promises to be still lively at Olympique de Marseille in August. Soon delivered by Inter Milan, striker Alexis Sanchez found himself insistently announced at the vice-champion of France in title.

However, before considering the signing of the Chilean international, the Marseille club will have to degrease its offensive sector.

Bakambu, a discussion with Celta

Ideally, Marseille President Pablo Longoria had plans to sell Bamba Dieng, an element bankable on the walk. But faced with the refusal of the Senegalese international to pack his bags, a departure from Cédric Bakambu would obviously be under consideration. Indeed, according to Spanish journalist Diego Castro on Tuesday, the Congolese international is the subject of discussions with Celta Vigo.

Considering a simple replacement for OM behind Arkadiusz Milik or new recruit Luis Suarez, the former Villarreal would be seduced by the idea of ​​finding an important role in La Liga, a championship he knows perfectly. The two teams were even discussing an operation estimated between 6 and 7 million euros.

A boon for OM?

On paper, a departure from Bakambu, under such conditions, could represent a great deal for OM. Since his free arrival last January, the 31-year-old has failed to win with only 4 goals in 21 games played in all competitions. For Marseille, it would therefore be a good opportunity to withdraw from a large salary (400,000 euros per month) while recovering cash.
