We knew it, this winter was going to be very hot for Olympique de Marseille on the transfer window. On the one hand because Pablo Longoria, the president, loves these moments, but also because OM intended to recruit two attacking players. The first recruit arrived quickly in the person of Ruslan Malinovskyi, but the second is long overdue.

He played little, has only two starts (one in Ligue 1 and one in the Coupe de France) and this is not his last appearance against Nice, which put Tudor on edge, which will change his mind. the former defender of Juventus Turin.

On the side of the player, we also realize that the words of last summer, when he returned after an aborted transfer, remained only words. So, yes, the two parties had to meet to discuss a contract extension. But this extension of the lease was more linked to an economic will of OM (the player is out of contract in a year and a half) than to a real sporting idea. It was then quite naturally that Longoria turned to Terem Moffi, a case whose outcome is still awaited…
