Faced with XXL competition at OM (Gerson, Guendouzi, Kamara, Gueye), Valentin Rongier is not sure to stay at 100%.
Holder against Saint-Etienne on Sunday evening (3-1), Valentin Rongier delivered a good performance with an overflowing activity and an assist to the key. Used by Jorge Sampaoli in a hybrid position where he has defended many times on the right side, the ex-FC Nantes captain is hoping to win at Olympique Marseille this season. But according to the information from the newspaper L’Equipe, a thunderous surprise cannot be ruled out with Rongier on this last day of the summer transfer window. And for good reason, the national daily reports that OM’s defensive midfielder is tracked by several Bundesliga clubs whose names have not been filtered.
Unable to sell Boubacar Kamara or Duje Caleta-Car, who refused to join Wolverhampton, Olympique de Marseille could agree to part ways with Valentin Rongier in the event of an interesting proposal. It remains to be seen what the price set by Pablo Longoria for the former Nantes player, recruited for 15 million euros two years ago. In addition, it is not certain that Valentin Rongier has any plans to leave OM after a virtually blank season due to his very long foot injury. Either way, Pablo Longoria is not closing any doors and showing an open mind with interested clubs, not yet knowing if this will work out. If Rongier or Kamara leave, OM should recruit a midfielder. The name of Steven Nzonzi, who could purely and simply be released by AS Roma in the coming hours, was mentioned in particular, although this track is not unanimous among the supporters after the very average season of the international French in Rennes in 2020-2021.
