Very active in the transfer market, OM want to make a few sales during this last day of the summer transfer window. And according to the latest news, an executive in the Marseille squad has several touches in Germany.
The next few hours will be very eventful at the Olympique de Marseille. The Olympians have completed the arrival of Amine Harit from Schalke 04. But it is impossible to formalize this transfer without the sale of a Marseille player. The OM, in the grip of financial difficulties, must indeed reduce its payroll in order to get into the nails of the DNCG.
The OM management must necessarily part with a few players before the transfer window closes. And among the possible starters, the name of Duje Caleta-Car, much sought after in the Premier League, comes up regularly. With a year from the end of his contract with OM, Boubacar Kamara is also likely to set sail. Another Marseille executive could also pack his bags at the end of the summer transfer window. To everyone’s surprise, L’Équipe reveals that Valentin Rongier is being courted by several German clubs, the names of which have yet to be filtered out.
But the departure of midfielder from Olympique de Marseille seems unlikely because Valentin Rongier is one of the key pawns in Jorge Sampaoli’s device. The Argentina coach has no real plans to part ways with the former Nantes player, who can help out as a right-back.
This season, Valentin Rongier has already played two Ligue 1 games under the orders of the Marseille manager, who intends to rely on him for the rest of the season. The French midfielder is linked with OM until June 2024. Any contenders should therefore look to other avenues.
