Mercato: Clauss and Vitinha pushed out, Sarr retained... the final maneuvers at OM

Degreasing operation in Marseille. A year after his arrival with great fanfare (32 million euros with bonus), the time has come for the end of the adventure for Vitinha. A year after his arrival at OM, the Portuguese striker will already leave to sign for Genoa, as confirmed by Gianluca Di Marzio. A loan with a purchase option of 25 million euros would have been concluded between the two parties. “It’s very difficult for an attacker to establish himself at OM,” Pablo Longoria regretted Monday about the young 23-year-old attacker, who will never have lived up to the Olympian investment (32 million 'euros). His last failed outing at the Vélodrome against Monaco (2-2) therefore marks the end of a failed adventure with OM. In Genoa, he will reunite with a former partner, the Ukrainian Ruslan Malinovski on loan last summer.

Still among the probable departures, Pape Gueye should not be spared. Suspended for his involvement in an illicit transfer affair and at the end of his contract in six months, the Senegalese midfielder (eliminated last night by the Ivory Coast) is pushed out by the Olympian management for having refused an offer of extension, reports L 'Equipe in today's edition. “Gueye's non-response is not respecting the club,” said Pablo Longoria at a press conference on Monday. We hope that he can find an interesting way out for all parties by Thursday.” A standoff could thus emerge as the former Le Havre player does not intend to leave the club while Longoria refuses to lose a new free player, as he did with Boubacar Kamara (Aston Villa).

Much more surprising, the name of a starter emerged among the possible departures by Thursday evening. According to L'Equipe, the Marseille leaders have placed Jonathan Clauss on the market to possibly exfiltrate him this winter, while the French international has a year and a half of contract remaining. According to the daily, the Olympian management criticizes a lack of involvement on the part of the former Lensois, accused of potentially “taking it easy for the Euro”. Aged 31, Clauss has a market value of more than 10 million euros and was notably approached by Bayern Munich this winter, before the Bavarians turned to the younger Sacha Boey (23). However, those around him assure that the player has no intention of leaving this winter, but rather this summer.

Conversely, the Olympian management should resolve to keep Ismaïla Sarr. Disappointing since his arrival in Marseille and for a time mentioned among the candidates for departure, the Senegalese should remain at OM. According to RMC Sport, Gennaro Gattuso would have informed his management that he was counting on the former Rennais, expected on his return from the CAN after the elimination of the Teranga Lions against Ivory Coast on Monday. Arriving from Watford last summer (13 million euros), the 25-year-old had a few touches in England and was the subject of intense courtship by Villarreal.
