LIGUE 1 – Pablo Longoria’s sleight of hand: a bogus deal and a lower-cost contract for Jonathan Clauss


Would Pablo Longoria be the king of the bluff? While all shots are allowed during the transfer window, the Marseille president would have used a daring strategy to force the arrival of a flagship recruit of the summer, as revealed The Team in its current edition.

Back in the heart of July. Discussions drag on between RC Lens and Olympique de Marseille about the transfer of Jonathan Clauss. Priority target of the Spaniard to strengthen the right lane, the French international will be the subject of a risky scheme which will ultimately pay off for the sports strategy of the Olympian club. And, indirectly, for its finances.

Panic in Nice, nice shots from OM: Our L1 transfer window notebook

Faced with the positioning of the Lensois decision-makers, Longoria spread the rumor of another track leading to Hans Hateboer. Better: the Dutch piston of Atalanta would even have an agreement with OM! A fake news which will give rise to other rumors according to which the Marseillais would study different profiles to the detriment of Clauss.

Hateboer, prime target

Feeling the wind turned, the latter, accompanied by his inner circle, put pressure on the northern club… and conceded part of his remuneration negotiated with the Olympians in order to guarantee his movement to the Stade Vélodrome! The contract will finally be signed on November 19 and Clauss will carry out « the dream of a lifetime » to compete in the Champions League.

always according to The Team, this sleight of hand is not a first in the career of the Marseille president. In Valencia, to confuse the tracks of his summer transfer window in 2018, he had already handled the opposite foot by using a player. Which ? Hateboer!

The latter, four years after the first rumors linking him to a Longoria club, is still playing in Bergamo with Ruslan Malinovskyi who was really targeted by OM in August.
