Like every weekend, FCM invites you to follow the OM transfer window news and rumors of the week! On the program this Sunday: The future of Sampaoli, a new English club on Caleta-Car, a Frenchman to replace Kamara?

Mercato M: A new Premier League club on Caleta-Car?

Present at the Vélodrome stadium during the match between OM and FC Nantes, Steven Gerrard supervised Bouba Kamara, but not only… Indeed, Duje Caleta-Car would also be in the sights of the Liverpool legend.

While OM were playing their match against FC Nantes on Wednesday evening, a certain Steven Gerrard went to the Stade Vélodrome to supervise certain players. According to RMC, the Aston Villa coach came in person to monitor Bouba Kamara, free of any contract at the end of the season. However, the former Liverpool Reds captain wouldn’t have come just for the Marseille native. Indeed, Duje Caleta-Car would be in the sights of the Villans.

Author of a good season after a complicated start, Duje Caleta-Car still attracts certain English clubs. Indeed, according to information from Ignazio Genuardi, Steven Gerrard also came to the Vélodrome during the match against Nantes to be able to examine the case of the great Croatian defender more closely. So after Liverpool or West Ham, it is Aston Villa who are interested in the profile of the 2018 vice-world champion. Free in June 2023, OM will have to sell him this summer to recover money and not not lose the Croatian freely.

As a reminder, the last time the two clubs did business together was for the transfer of Morgan Sanson in the winter of 2021.

I hope Caleta-Car doesn’t go free – De Bono

Participating in the Debat Foot Marseille program, Jean-Charles De Bono gives his feelings on the future of OM central defender Duje Caleta-Car.

Mercato OM: Harit’s transfer too expensive for OM?

Amine Harit has had an excellent end to the season with Olympique de Marseille. The Moroccan international was no longer in Jorge Sampaoli’s plans but he managed to reverse the trend. OM would now like to keep the young attacking midfielder but Schalke would be rather greedy in this matter.

Arrived during the last days of the last summer transfer window, Amine Harit experienced several very distinct phases during his season in the Olympian jersey. Author of two very good meetings against Monaco and Rennes at the start of the exercise, the Moroccan international gradually died out during the following matches until completely disappearing from the workforce. Lost to sight for several months, Amine Harit absolutely no longer entered into Jorge Sampaoli’s plans. When he returned, the attacking midfielder did not bring what he could bring given his abilities. Harit, however, seems to have changed Sampaoli’s mind and convinced him to keep him next season. Indeed, for a few weeks, a few months, Harit has regained his level of play. Very good in the Europa League Conference, Harit was also in very good shape during his comeback against PSG and during the match against FC Nantes. However, Schalke would be rather greedy in the Amine Harit file.

According to information from L’Equipe, OM could find it difficult to complete the transfer of Amine Harit this summer. Indeed, according to the sports daily, the last two years of the contract which binds him to the German club as well as his salary would make the operation complicated. Not sure, therefore, of seeing Amine Harit again in the Olympian jersey next season, even if qualification for the Champions League could make things easier.

Sampaoli not patient enough with Harit

Present at a press conference yesterday, Jorge Sampaoli was asked about the fitness of Amine Harit. The Argentinian coach admitted a lack of patience on his part towards the Moroccan international.

« It’s my responsibility for not taking advantage of Amine at times in a very honest way. When we chose him, we knew what was expected of him and I didn’t have the patience to put up with some mistakes he made in some games, it took him away from the team. » Jorge Sampaoli – Source: Press conference

Mercato OM: Bakayoko to replace Kamara?

Currently second in the league, OM are on their way to the podium and qualification for the Champions League. For this summer transfer window, Pablo Longoria will have to start managing the Kamara file, who should leave the club in June. Our consultant Jean-Charles De Bono and our journalist mentioned a lead from Italy to replace the Marseille minot.

Boubacar KAMARA

Boubacar KAMARA – Marseilles

Five days before the end of the championship, Olympique de Marseille is on the way to qualifying for the Champions League. By finishing 2nd, OM could offer themselves direct qualification for the Big Ears Cup and a more ambitious transfer window in order to do well in this European competition. A summer window that Pablo Longoria will have to start beating drums with in particular the management of the Kamara case. It is now almost certain that the player trained at the club will leave the Phocaeans at the end of the season.

A huge loss for Jorge Sampaoli’s team that will have to be made up with the arrival of a quality and experienced player. And for a few weeks, the name of Tiémoué Bakayoko has been coming back with insistence on the side of the Canebière. Playing very little at AC Milan and benefiting from a very good knowledge of Ligue 1 and the high level, the former Monaco player has everything in store, that’s what our consultant Jean- Charles DeBono:

“I really like Bakayoko, he’s an impact player, he has a big presence. If Kamara leaves it’s a good acquisition, he needs to relaunch (…) If he comes to Olympique de Marseille, he will have no difficulty adapting, he knows Ligue 1, he would come to a club who plays the Champions League, to replace Kamara it would be perfect. Athletically, technically it’s beautiful, he has lived in big clubs whether it’s Chelsea or AC Milan so today he has this experience and this desire to want to play because he went through 2 big clubs where he didn’t really impose himself so once again if he manages to win in Marseille, he will find the light  » Jean-Charles De Bono – Source: Football Club Marseille (21/04/2022)

Bakayoko, a real bet?

Returning to AC Milan after a loan to Naples and a return to Monaco, Tiémoué Bakayoko could take advantage of OM to revive his career while his playing time in Milan is starving. For our journalist, Mourad Aerts, trying to bring the Milanese would not be a winning bet:

« When he arrived at AC Milan, Gattuso gave him a hard time, he thought he was a player of m… and Bakayoko had proved to him at the time that he was a very good player, he had ends up totally convincing him (…) After he is 28, it’s a big salary, I don’t know, it’s also complicated ” Mourad Aerts – Source: Football Club Marseille (21/04/2022)

There is not a 100% chance that he will stay at OM – Grégoire

Guest of the program Débat Foot Marseille, Mathieu Grégoire calls for caution regarding the future of OM coach Jorge Sampaoli.

He is someone who is ambitious – Grégoire

Asked about the situation of coach Mathieu Grégoire explains the journey in the head of Sampaoli and evokes the objectives of OM for this summer transfer window.

He will look at what is offered to him, the means he will have, with whom he will work. I think he will have time to reflect on his situation. He is someone who is ambitious, who wants the transfer window, he recently said at a press conference that there will be departures and arrivals. His goal for next season is to maintain roughly one base and add four or five players to the squad. Knowing in addition that it is also necessary to replace those who will leave, it can still make a transfer window with 10 elements. If coach Sampaoli and president Longoria stay, we will have a turbulent transfer window. Mathieu Gregoire – Source: Marseille Foot Debate (19/04/2022)
