Mercato Mercato – OM: After Suarez, things will move again in Marseille


The winter transfer window has not yet opened but a player has already left since Luis Suarez has been loaned to Almeria with a purchase option set at €8m. But it’s probably not over. Although no revolution is expected in the workforce of OM in January, two players seem concerned by a possible departure.

Even before the opening of the winter transfer window, theOM has already parted ways with a player. This is Luis Suarez. Recruited for €10m, the Colombian striker was ultimately a very big flop and never won under the orders ofIgor Tudor. Consequently, he is already leaving the Marseille club and returning to Spain since he is on loan at Almería with a purchase option estimated at €8 million. In this case, theOM didn’t come off too badly and could have lost a lot bigger. However, on the departure side, things may not be over for this winter.

Touré and Konrad on the start?

Indeed, although a workforce review is not on the agenda, theOM could take advantage of the winter transfer window to make some adjustments and in particular on loan Isaac Toure as explained THE TEAM. Considered a great hope when he landed from the Haven last summer for €7m, bonus included, the young central defender played very little during the first part of the season and could therefore go and glean some playing time at another Ligue 1 club in order to progress. Another player on the way out, Konrad de la Fuente. The American winger was not retained by theOlympiacoswhere he had been on loan since last summer, and could bounce back in Spain.

Balerdi should stay

On the other hand, despite the rumors he has been the subject of in recent weeks, Leonardo Balerdi is not on the way out. THE TEAM ensures that theOM does not intend to give up the former defender of the Borussia Dortmund which has alternated the good and the less good since the start of the season. Moreover, no reinforcements are expected at this post this winter.
