Little by little, Olympique de Marseille is advancing its pawns on the transfer window. The Phocéens are for example in the process of concluding the arrival of Konrad de la Fuente, the American winger of FC Barcelona. An agreement was reached in the morning of Saturday for a transfer of around 5 million euros, but the Catalans will still have some control over the player, via a buyout option or a percentage of the rights of the product from La Masia. . At the same time, Jorge Sampaoli tries to convince David Luiz to join him in the south of France.
As explained Provence, Pablo Longoria and Jorge Sampaoli already have an idea of the starting eleven who will start next season. Thus, in the cages, we will find either Steve Mandanda, or the goalkeeper who will be recruited to compete with him. Both men have a lead in mind, but it is not yet clear who they are. In defense, however, it is less vague: the Argentine and the Spaniard want a trio made up of Saliba, David Luiz, and Balerdi or Alvaro.
Lots of changes
On the flanks, it should not move, because Lirola and Amavi are the pistons on which the two thinking heads of this OM want to rely. In the midfield, they want to align Gueye, Gerson and Guendouzi. At the forefront, things will not move since the Milik-Payet duo should still be the start in this 2021/2022 exercise. An eleven with many changes therefore, and the media indicate that Luis Henrique and Konrad de la Fuente should also have a role to play.
As you will have understood, there will also be a lot of starts, since players like Duje Caleta-Car, Bouba Kamara or Valentin Rongier, among others, are announced as starters by the newspaper in the event of a correct offer. Losses that could be quite significant, but it must be said, this potential eleven OM holders for next season looks great!
