The OM is preparing for a mercato that its leaders want to move. One departure and one official signing have already been made. The track leading to Mattéo Guendouzi does not really appeal to the media pro-Marseille Football Club.
OM : Mattéo Guendouzi to replace Kamara ?
The OM has already let go Florian Thauvin without collecting any transfer fee. The attacking player has signed with UANL Monterrey in Mexico. Unlike the striker, Jordan Amavi has extended his contract with the Phocaean club until 2025. At the end of the lease, the Japanese Yuko Nahatomo (34 years) will also leave free. His compatriot, Iroki Sakai, does not fit into the plans of Jorge Sampaoli. Boubacar Kamara, one of the satisfactions of Olympique Marseille this season, is in the process of transfer. To replace the 21 year old, the name of Mateo Guendouzi has surfaced. The latter is a long time track of the Olympians. He is announced in the sights of the club playing at the Velodrome since the summer of 2020, before his loan to Hertha Berlin.
The “unmanageable player” is not welcome in Marseille
But the defensive midfielder trained at PSG and FC Lorient would not be a good choice for OM, according to Nicolas Filhol. Not because he is not a good player, but because of his temperament. “At the level of mentality, he is not the kind of player that should be taken to Marseille. He’s a little diva, he’s a player who thinks he’s someone else. We have enough problems at the club to add to them with an unmanageable player,” said the journalist supporter of the club. The journalist is not excited about the idea of recruiting the French international.
