OM, the transfer window is coming alive! A frame ready to take the door


The next few days should be very lively behind the scenes at Olympique de Marseille.

Pablo Longoria is used to doing things in order. A few days after the announced departure of Igor Tudor, the president of Olympique de Marseille is working to find the successor of the Croatian technician. This file is obviously a priority since it will condition the rest of the transfer window, the next OM coach having the right to look at the workforce he wishes to draw in relation to his game plan. But that does not prevent Longoria to get active on other important files. Each case is very specific. For players, that of Alexis Sanchez tops the list.

Top scorer for Olympique de Marseille last season (18 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions), the Chilean striker is the x factor of his team. Tudor used to repeat that there is “an OM with and an OM without Alexis Sanchez”. An observation unanimously shared within the Marseille club, from the players to the management. Experienced, professional, decisive, combative, the former Barça player brings all his experience of the very high level.

Alexis Sanchez, big turnaround!

If he has sometimes been undecided about his future, Alexis Sanchez has always expressed his attachment to Marseille, and his desire to win trophies there. But with only one optional year in his lease, the Chilean has the cards in his hands. And if he has started discussions with his management to define the outlines of an extension, OM’s margin will be narrow. Especially financially.

Since Monday, the hypothesis of seeing Alexis Sanchez take the plunge for Saudi Arabia has gained momentum. It has been confirmed by Fabrizio Romano in recent hours. According to the Italian journalist, always very precise in terms of the transfer window, Alexis Sanchez would have received a very lucrative offer from the Al Fateh club, which would offer a two-year lease, plus an optional year, with an annual salary of 10 millions of euros.

An astronomical sum and a contract duration that would not leave Alexis Sanchez indifferent. From the height of his 34 years, the Chilean does not exclude any possibility. And given his very unique life course, he will necessarily listen to the highest bidders.
