Hurry. Olympique de Marseille have no time to waste this summer. The Marseille club have already got their hands on Gerson (24 years old, Flamengo) and hope to be able to quickly complete the Konrad de la Fuente file (19 years old). The Catalan media revealed this Sunday that negotiations were underway between the Olympians and FC Barcelona for the American international (1 cape).
A meeting is even scheduled for Monday between all parties to advance the operation, explain in chorus RAC-1, Provence and The team, with the possible modalities in the program. Mundo Deportivo says a loan with a compulsory purchase option set at € 5m is on the table. OM therefore clearly has reasons to believe in it. Jorge Sampaoli understood this well, since, according to information from TV3, the Argentine has already taken his phone to call the attacker and explain to him what place he intended to give him in the Ciel-et-Blancs.
Competition for OM
An approach that the interested party will surely have appreciated. He specifically criticizes Ronald Koeman for having promised him playing time this season after taking office last summer. However, he was only entitled to three entries in all competitions for a total of about 40 minutes. It is for this reason that the native of Miami, under contract until June 2022 (with two additional years optional), wishes to go elsewhere this summer, favoring for his part a dry transfer.
The planets are aligned for OM. Yes but now, other teams are waiting around the corner to recover the product of La Masia, twirling and performing on his left side with Barça B this season (6 goals in 22 appearances in Segunda B). Betis, Alavès and a Bundesliga club whose name has not been filtered are also trying their luck, specifies TV3. The race against time is on for Pablo Longoria and his teams.
