Indeed, according to todofichajes, “Thiago Almada will finally make the jump to Europe and Olympique de Marseille. The France team concluded an agreement on a personal basis with the footballer yesterday and is currently negotiating his signature with Vélez Sarsfield, which all tends towards a rapid conclusion. (…) The 20-year-old Argentinian gave the green light on his arrival in France, namely that he will sign a long-term contract, until 2026, tripling his current salary. The attacking midfielder will fill the cash registers of Vélez with its departure close to 20M €, to complete one of the biggest sales in the history of the club. «  OM should therefore spend 20M € to attract Argentinian talent. To confirm !



For several months, the name of Thiago Almada has been cited as one of the priority tracks of Pablo Longoria and Jorge Sampaoli. As soon as the Argentine coach arrived, rumors intensified and the latter was even questioned about this at a press conference.

“No, I can’t confirm (contacts, editor’s note). I know him very well, we have a very good relationship. He is growing with a great future. He is a midfielder with a wide offensive palette. Beyond my personal feelings, I don’t know if the club communicated with him. It’s not clear because what concerns me are the last four games and a European qualification. But it’s a name that seems to me to have a great future. I think any coach would love to have it. I don’t know if there is any communication from the club about this. He is a player who is very well valued, it is a promise. When he consolidates, he will be a very important player. It is an analysis that I base on what I saw in selection, not on its current performance ” Jorge Sampaoli – Source: Press conference (04/29/21)


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)
