Like every afternoon, FCM offers you the 3 OM news of the day! On this Tuesday’s program: Cold wave for Veretout, Alexis Sánchez is done, Longoria listening to offers for Lirola?
Mercato OM: Cold wave in the Veretout archive?
According to Foot Mercato, the track leading to Jordan Veretout has cooled down considerably in the last few hours. The international midfielder would prefer to join AC Milan.
Since the departure of Jorge Sampaoli, the Marseille management has been working on the development of part of its squad. After the court failure that led to Axel Witsel, the French midfielder from AS Roma was Pablo Longoria’s priority target to replace Boubacar Kamara, who this summer left for Aston Villa.
Does Veretout want to stay in Italy?
Jordan Veretout’s profile seemed to be an interesting solution that combined high-level experience and knowledge of the French championship. If internally we wanted to have confidence in the arrival of the international tricolor, the rumor has taken the lead in recent hours.
Usually quoted on the Marseille or even Lyon side, Veretout would prefer to stay in Serie A. According to Foot Mercato, the Roma midfielder is prioritizing a move to AC Milan, who have been courting him for several weeks. The search for Kamara’s successor in midfield seems more complex than expected.

During the transfer window, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach — Longoria
“It is normal that there are changes in the search for profiles. A player who is comfortable in one style of play is not necessarily comfortable in another. Last year we started in profiles to have possession in midfield and we had Boubacar Kamara in particular who had that role as a central midfielder. With Igor’s way of playing, the two midfielders will have different characteristics with more intensity, an ability to take up space. Therefore, the strategy will change in certain positions. As we said in the last press conference, the objective is to increase the quality of the squad, giving continuity to the team. With the Champions League, I think we need to recruit 5-8 players (OM already has 7 with Nuno Tavares). During the transfer window, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach. I’ve always said that good leaders are those who have a good ability to adapt, to the club, to the city and to their identity. And also an adaptation to a new coach and his style of play. You always have to meet the expectations of a new coach as he is the one who will develop the players. » Pablo Longoria Press conference (05/07/2022).
Mercato: OM, do you listen to offers for this player?
As La Provence explained a few days ago, nobody is non-transferable to Olympique de Marseille. Pol Lirola is no exception… In the event of an offer, the club would consider leaving.
The preparation matches allowed to target the players that Igor Tudor likes from the ones that he does not want to keep in his squad. One of the big losers is inevitably Pol Lirola who, as La Provence recalls in his article, only played 100 minutes in the 5 preparation games in July.
Lirola could leave OM this summer
The right back had already lost his place in the squad with Jorge Sampaoli and played less and less. Valentin Rongier, who was lined up in this right piston position, finds his position in the middle, but the Spaniard is not a winner because of that.

The arrival of Jonathan Clauss inevitably lowered his place in the hierarchy… Worse still, the club would be listening to offers for him and would not be against letting him escape. Frank McCourt had claimed exits recently, he could be served if Pol Lirola receives interesting offers.

Ribalta will take care of sales – Grégoire
“Pablo Longoria considers Javier Ribalta as one of his references in football, he said in an interview in Provence in December 2020. A reference to Fabio Paratici, the former sports director of Juventus, today of Tottenham. Ribalta is his friend, I think he surrounds himself, his close guard has improved, I think Ribalta will take care of sales in particular. We have seen that he is already very active in the signing of Luis Henrique at Torino with his Italian networks, because we have to leave the players, I think he will relieve Longoria of certain tasks but later in the profile we are in something quite similar, focused on Longoria, but maybe Longoria thinks he has a lot to do as president, he doesn’t like that very much, the interviews, the meetings with Benoît Payan, the rent is not his favorite area. Longoria thinks that Ribalta could go back to the heart of the work like the architecture of deals, things like that. I personally think it’s modern football. I compare Longoria with Luis Campos (PSG technical director) and Ribalta is a bit like that too, they have his qualities and his flaws. His qualities are that they are going to bet sometimes on a player who is going to have an explosion, for a very great talent, they are also new generation managers who work a lot with mandates, with the same agents always with commissions, he is Campos’ side at Lille, we saw it with the transfer of Victor Osimhen where there are things poorly explained. In my opinion, there are good and bad sides, I’m not judging that, I’m just saying that it corresponds to modern football. But, whether it’s Longoria or Ribalta, to make the transfer window is very good, they are specialists but there are good and bad sides. » Mathieu Gregory – Source: Marseille Football Club (06/27/2022)
Mercato OM: Is it done by Alexis Sánchez? The details of the offer!
Olympique de Marseille is very close to signing Alexis Sánchez. His agent is expected this Tuesday in Milan for the breach of contract at Inter!
Alexis Sanchez in OM, it’s almost there! La Gazzetta Dello Sport explains this Tuesday that the player has broken his contract with Inter. His agent would be expected in Milan on Tuesday to sign the breach of contract. The Chilean should relate well to OM calmly.
A 2-year contract with €3M salary!
He will sign a two-year contract with a salary of 3 million euros per year according to the Italian sports newspaper. Several clubs hoped to win the bet on Alexis Sánchez but the former Arsenal player gave his word to OM.

The possibility of having a regular game time and above all of playing the Champions League next season has totally seduced her. Galatasaray had notably reached information in recent days, but Sánchez’s priority remains Marseille.

What is missing in Longoria’s hiring according to Rovera!
“There is a coherence in what the project is… Yes, I have always said that the objective of OM and Longoria was to have two young people to train to sell to big clubs and therefore make investments. We have to show that Olympique de Marseille manages to create, buy youngsters and sell them at a higher price, but there is also the search for results. In this logic we can understand that this year 30-year-old players like Gigot arrive, Clauss who is not a youngster on whom we can add value but comes from Ligue 1 and is international. He will also take, perhaps, an Alexis Sánchez who would be a very concrete track with the possibility of finding the one who had a good season with Conte at Inter Milan… There is a complementarity with these youngsters like Touré for example and the experienced ones. those who will act immediately. We are in stage 2 of the Longoria project. Take young people as added value and consolidate a team to obtain results. Classification in the Champions League and maintenance of competitiveness. But for me, this year, if we look at the squad, if we look at the 11th starter… What will be the desire, the ambition, the determination… The people of Marseille, the city, who want to see beautiful things, lack a spark ! He lacks what Sampaoli contributed because of his character, his offensive all-in. He could be Gerson but I’m not sure of his continuity. I’m not convinced, he was a man from Sampaoli. He has to be with Igor Tudor. He had found a balance with Sampaoli, it must also be found with Tudor. I’m not convinced that spark comes from Guendouzi and Payet, although I understand the logic of putting him as the second attacker closest to the goal, I don’t know if he will have the chance to be that spark all the time. -the. I validate the basic idea of what OM is doing in the market with sales, but what I miss this year is the one that drives Marseille crazy! » simone rover – Source: RMC, After Foot (07/30/22)
