Eager to strengthen themselves in this summer transfer window, Olympique de Marseille will have to cut back as quickly as possible. The phocen club hopes to complete the departures of seven undesirable players.
OM want to separate from Caleta-Car.
Olympique de Marseille will be able to shop on the transfer market. Reassured by the DNCG after its second audition, the Marseille club hopes to attract many recruits this summer.
But before that, you will have to sell to free up space and above all cash. Seven players have also been blacklisted by Pablo Longoria according to L’Equipe.
Caleta-Car, it’s now or never
Shelved by Jorge Sampaoli, Alvaro Gonzalez going to leave. No longer supporting his sporting situation, the central defender accepts his gender. But his departure is not so simple. And for good reason, the termination of his contract, which expires in June 2024, could cost up to 5 million euros. As a result, the Marseille president favors a sale instead to avoid additional financial losses.
Another thorny file, that of Duje Caleta-Car. After several aborted transfers, the Croatian central defender will also have to leave in the next two months to avoid a free start in the summer of 2023. For the time being, only FC Sville remains on the lookout, but his contractual situation does not encourage the Spanish club rushes. Estimated 15 million euros, the vice-world champion also wants to take his time.
Pol Lirola is also a candidate for exile. After six very interesting first months, the Spanish side right completely sank during the season. Not really helped by his coach, the player recruited for 12 million euros is ready to leave. But after a very painful exercise, the ex-piston of Fiorentina does not have a host of suitors.
Among the flops from which the Iberian leader wishes to part, Luis Henrique. Bought for 8 million euros, the Brazilian striker has still not shown the extent of his talent after two years. Obviously, this has ended up tiring of the southern club, which opens the door wide for him. Recently, Torino placed its pawns to recover it but the deal has still not been completed.
Amavi will be difficult to move…
Other players who have recently received income after a loan are asked to pack their bags permanently. departureJordan Amavi, back after a five-month spell in Nice, will be complicated to complete. Even if he has little chance of winning, the left side, extending very advantageous conditions until June 2025, does not intend to make any efforts to facilitate his management.
Not retained by Benfica, Nemanja Radonjic will have to find a way out to hope to contest the World Cup in Qatar. At the end of the contract in June 2023, the Serbian winger should be little observant, in the same way as Kevin Strootman, who is also entering the last year of his tenure after two successive loans to Genoa and Cagliari. The Marseille leaders have their work cut out for them!
