Mercato OM: Does Duje Caleta-Car already know where he will play next season?

The Croatian defender could have made the decision to stay at OM this summer. At the end of the contract in 2023, he can freely leave in one year.

Recruited in 2018 for 19 million euros, Duje Caleta-Car was put on the transfer list this summer. At the end of the one-year contract, the Croatian chose to go against the will of his leaders and stay at the club. While Frank McCourt would have ordered Pablo Longoria to sell before the end of the transfer window, the former Salzburg player does not want to leave Marseille.

The Croatian international hopes to experience the same situation as last season when he was able to join the starting lineup and never leave it. The daily L’Équipe indicates that Caleta Car intends to complete his contract in order to freely join another club next summer. A path that risks bringing back bad memories for the Olympian club that rejected an offer of 26 million from Liverpool for its defender at the start of 2021. Aston Villa.

Mercato: This striker opens the door to leave OM!

When Luis Suarez arrived at OM, the horizon darkened for Cédric Bakambu. The management of Marseille will not be opposed to parting with their Congolese international.

Not sure to benefit from a starting place, Cédric Bakambu has started, seven months after his arrival in Marseille. The Congolese striker was announced with the insistence of the Celta Vigo side. The daily L’Équipe indicates that negotiations between the two formations have begun but the Spanish formation is not ready to put in the 7 million demanded by the Olympian management.

On the part of Marseille, we are trying to free ourselves from his huge salary (250,000 euros per month). The two formations have already worked together for the transfer of Ruben Blanco and could easily find an agreement. Cédric Bakambu will not look down upon a departure from Marseille. Prevented by the attack of Luis Suarez, Arkadiusz Milik and the possible arrival of Alexis Sanchez, the future of the Congolese striker seems to be written far from Marseille.

Provence confirmed that the OM player was followed by Vigo and he will not be retained by the management.

With his big salary and rather disappointing results on the field, Bakambu could give way to Alexis Sanchez who is closer to Olympique de Marseille according to the Italian media. He had to sign with OM for two seasons.

Whether it’s Longoria or Ribalta, to make the transfer window, it’s good – Grégoire

“Pablo Longoria considers Javier Ribalta one of his references in football, he said in an interview in Provence in December 2020. A reference with Fabio Paratici is the former sports director of Juventus, now at Tottenham. Ribalta is his friend, I think he surrounds himself, he improves his close guard, I think Ribalta will take care of sales especially. We see that he is already active in the file of Luis Henrique in Torino with his Italian network, because we need to get out of the players, I think he will get Longoria out of some tasks but after the profile we actually have something a little similar, focused on Longoria, but maybe Longoria thinks he has a lot to do as president, he doesn’t like that, interviews, meetings with Benoît Payan, rent is not his favorite place. first Longoria that Ribalta can return to the heart of the work like the architecture of deals, things like that. Personally I think it’s modern football. I compare Longoria to Luis Campos (technical director of PSG) and Ribalta is a bit like that, they have qualities and faults. Their qualities are that they sometimes bet on a player with an explosion, on a very good talent, besides that, they are managers of the new generation who work in many orders, who always have same agents with commissions, this is about Campos in Lille, we saw it with the transfer of Victor Osimhen where there are things that are not well explained. In my opinion, there are good and bad sides, I won’t judge that, I’m just saying it’s equivalent to modern football. But, whether Longoria or Ribalta, the creation of the transfer window, very good, they are specialists but have good and bad parts. » Mathieu Gregoire – Source: Marseille Football Club (06/27/2022)
