Little by little, we are starting to know the contours of the squad awaiting Jorge Sampaoli for next season. There are already two certainties: Florian Thauvin, whose contract expired in June, will not be part of it. The international tricolor will take the direction of Mexico at the end of the season to join the Tigers. Jordan Amavi himself, whose future was also rather vague, will remain on the side of the Vélodrome after having extended his contract.
For his part, Pablo Longoria continues to comb through the transfer window and is inevitably preparing to offer interesting players to his coach. The name of Thiago Almada, the nugget of Vélez Sarsfield, comes up very often in the transfer window rumors around the Marseille club, just like that of Amine Adli, the Toulouse player. We will also have to manage the Pol Lirola case, on loan from Fiorentina and very successful since his arrival.
Probable farewell for Kamara
In today’s edition, the dailyTeam says more about the potential departures of major players. There is the Arkadiusz Milik case. Certainly, Pablo Longoria has confirmed that he is totally Marseillais and that a return to Naples was therefore not possible. But according to the media, the player will not be selected in case of a good offer, especially since he is very ambitious for the rest of his career, he who is coveted by several big Serie A clubs, including Juve and Roma. Steve Mandanda is also potentially starting, with Alexander Nübel (Bayern) as a potential replacement.
What about Bouba Kamara? On the side of Marseille, we know that offers will arrive, and the club’s staff is already looking for a replacement. Suffice to say that the future of the minot should not be written at the Vélodrome. Matteo Guendouzi is one of the players on Longoria’s list to cover his departure. We can imagine that his sale, like that of the Polish striker, will make it possible to recover a small jackpot to recruit behind. Not to mention the salary released by a secondary element like Valère Germain for example. Suffice to say that we will witness a real small revolution this summer …
