Transfers: OM discusses an early arrival of Samuel Gigot
What if Samuel Gigot joined OM before the end of the season? The central defender (28) already signed up with Marseille last January before being loaned to Spartak Moscow until June. In the context of the war between Ukraine and Russia, the French Embassy advises French nationals to leave Russian territory. The measures taken by FIFA on Monday authorize him to negotiate a termination with the Moscow club until March 11 or to suspend his contract thereafter if no agreement has been reached.
Discussions have multiplied in recent hours between the player and his entourage on the one hand, and Pablo Longoria, the Marseille president and David Friio, his technical director, on the other. The anticipated arrival of the captain of Spartak would be seen as good sporting news by the Olympian leaders. But it would pose a financial concern in a context of tense payroll and closely monitored by the DNCG. To see if Longoria manages to solve the equation in the coming days.
