Huge twist in the Almada case?

A few days ago we learned that Olympique de Marseille would approach an agreement with Vélez Sarsfield for the recruitment of Thiago Almada. According to an Italian journalist, the Argentinian player should finally join MLS …

This weekend, the Argentinian media Velez A Fondo indicated that an agreement would exist between OM and the club Velez Sarsfield for a transfer of Thiago Almada. “Thiago Almada very close to being a player for Olympique de Marseille. The percentage of sale is being defined. The offer would be around 15 million euros, ”he said.

The situation may well have changed in the space of a few hours. In fact, according to the latest information from Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, the young Argentinian should finally take charge of the MLS and join the Atlanta club.
“Thiago Almada at Atlanta United, the case is closed! The arrival of the club in the last few hours has exploded the plans between OM and the former Velez player who will play in MLS next season, ”he said on Twitter.

Information which is however not completely confirmed by the Argentinian journalist Pedro Almeida. The latter, for his part, only advances the negotiations in progress: “Atlanta United is entering the race for Thiago Almada and is preparing to present an offer of € 20 million to Velez. The proposal interests the Argentine club. « 


In our last Foot Marseille Debate, supporter Thierry Mode was asked about this and thinks it would be a huge blow for Olympique de Marseille to sign this player. Very popular with supporters, Thiago Almada has a big side and his arrival would set off a bomb!

« Almada? I think that if OM signed this player, it would be a very big media stunt! I’m not talking in terms of big players but in media terms. Compared to the prospect that it is, a lot of clubs are struggling. If they manage to get him to sign… Big English, Spanish, Italian clubs who want it… There are rumors games with agents etc who say that such and such a club are on such and such a player but if you succeed in doing Almada, c is a big hit! It would be a recruitment that we haven’t done for a very long time.  » Thierry fashion – Source: Football Club de Marseille (07/19/21)
