Zapping Goal! soccer club OM: Should we give more responsibilities to Valentin Rongier?
The officialization of the loan of Nuno Tavares (Arsenal) imminent, OM will now be able to focus the continuation of their Mercato on the ultimate priority of Igor Tudor: the arrival of a new manager to hold the midfielder in his 3-5-2 system.
Veretout is too expensive for OM
Regarding the priority of Pablo Longoria for this position, there is no real mystery: it is the French midfielder of AS Roma, Jordan Veretout (29 years old). The deal does not look easy for Marseille, however, while there are still two years of contract (2024) for the former player of Nantes and ASSE in Italy.
If we are to believe L’Equipe, the file is even downright complicated insofar as José Mourinho’s club does not want to hear of a departure from Veretout below 10-15 M€. Faced with the urgency of finding the right profile to replace Boubacar Kamara (left for Aston Villa), the president of OM would have started to activate his plans B. A good way to lower prices with Rome …
Veretout (AS Roma) too expensive for OM?
OM have made Jordan Veretout (AS Roma, 29) their priority in the middle, but Pablo Longoria will not complete the deal at the price demanded by the Italian club. The Spaniard estimates that Marseille cannot pay more than €10m for a midfielder who is already 29 years old.
