Recently, the name of Axel Witsel has been in the news for OM. This file is already closed since the Belgian midfielder will sign with Olympique Marseille. Negotiations started several weeks ago by the management of the club would come to an end.
According to Nicolo Schira, sports journalist and transfer market expert, the defensive midfielder who has just finished his contract with Borussia Dortmund has given the green light to OM to sign a two-season contract. He posted on his Twitter account this message relayed by Le Phocéen: “Axel Witsel to Olympique Marseille as a free agent. Contract until 2024. “
This news, if it is soon made official by the club, would be excellent for the club next season. With the departure of Boubacar Kamara to Aston Villa, Olympique Marseille needs to find a replacement for him who can play as a versatile defensive midfielder.
The Olympique Marseille moves up a gear
Qualified for the next Champions League, the Marseille club has no choice but to present a competitive team for next season. Coach Jorge Sampaoli has set the tone by indicating that it was useless if the team was involved in this European competition just to make up the numbers.
The Argentinian technician wants new players capable of allowing him to assume his ambitions. To keep up with the OM-PSG competition next season, Frank McCourt’s club must buy players of a certain standing. Even if OM has not yet obtained the green light from the DNCG for this mercato, Pablo Longoria is taking the lead by multiplying the leads.
The Luis Muriel track at Olympique de Marseille
For the return of the Marseille team in the Champions League, Jorge Sampaoli wants new blood. He has targeted Luis Muriel, the Colombian striker of Atalanta Bergamo, author of 59 goals in 127 matches for the Italian club. According to Sky Italia, the Marseille coach has made this player his priority in attack for the 2022-2023 season. An additional effort to be made by the president of the Olympic club who knows he is expected to make a move in the summer.
Indeed, Frank McCourt has every interest in putting his hand in his pocket to forget the rumors of the sale of OM. The supporters of his club were hoping for the arrival of rich Saudis as part of the sale of OM announced for two years by journalists. These predictions have not yet come true, so the American must disburse a lot of money to confirm his strong interest in Olympique Marseille.
