Football – Mercato – OM
Courted by the Girondins de Bordeaux, Alvaro Gonzalez is pushed towards the exit. But the Spanish defender would not intend to strengthen an OM rival.
« The truth is that I feel very comfortable here in Marseille, I identified a lot with the club and with the people who, in general, like me very much, so I wouldn’t mind staying here for years. » confided Alvaro González last February. A few weeks later, the Spanish defender confirmed his love for theOM by extending his contract with the Marseille club until 2024. Aged 32, the player certainly imagined hanging up his crampons in the Marseille city, but it was without counting on Jorge Sampaoli and Pablo Longoria. Arrived in Marseille last March, the Argentinian technician does not count on Alvaro Gonzalez and would have asked his president to sell him this winter. Asked about the future of the defender, Pablo Longoria confirmed that he was looking for solutions. « We intended to make Sead Kolasinac to anticipate a little, with a player adapting to the game of the coach. We have opened exit doors for players. I spoke to Alvaro, we will work together to find solutions » confided the leader during the presentation of Sead Kolasinac.
“The club shows its desire to part with the player”
Journalist for RMC, Florent Germain returned to the release of Pablo Longoria : “ We had real pressure from Pablo Longoria. The tone remained calm at the press conference, but Pablo Longoria had planned to talk about Alvaro, it was prepared. He wanted to put a little pressure publicly on the Spanish defender. He had this sentence “I spoke with him and his agent, we have an extra defender with our two arrivals, we will work to work out solutions, the door is open” That means what it means. The club shows its desire to part with the player « . pushed out, Alvaro González has several keys in Spain, but also in France.
“Tells him that he will only leave if there is an interesting offer”
In search of defensive reinforcements, the Girondins of Bordeaux are part of the interested teams. The club hopes to welcome Alvaro González, but the latter does not seem particularly excited. » OM are so keen to part ways with Alvaro Gonzalez that they offered the Girondins de Bordeaux, taking a good chunk of the salary for him to sign there. The Girondins are hot but Alvaro is not at all, he does not want to play maintenance and especially to play in a rival club, he who has immersed himself in Marseille and Olympian culture. He does not want to play with the Bordeaux rival. He saw the situation very badly, when he recently extended until 2024. He still defends the logo, even if it means sometimes going a little too much. He had also been among the players who shifted their salaries to allow Harit to sign. All of this gives him a feeling of injustice. Tells him that he will only leave if there is a good offer. At the moment there are none » told Florent Germain at the microphone of RMC. The end of the winter transfer window is approaching and theOM must absolutely find a solution in this sensitive matter.
