OM: four players on the market, including two holders

The off-season promises to be once again turbulent for Olympique de Marseille. According to information obtained by the newspaper L’Équipe, several players will not be retained in the event of an interesting offer this summer.

Thanks to its victory against ESTAC (3-1) this Sunday at the end of the 31st day of Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille regained second place in the championship from RC Lens, beaten in Paris (3-1 ). The final sprint promises to be exciting between these two teams and AS Monaco, still in ambush. Lensois and Monegasques will meet again this weekend.

But if Ligue 1 is still far from having given its verdict, the clubs are already working on next season. This is the case of Pablo Longoria and Javier Ribalta, always active and often inspired when it comes to strengthening the ranks of the Marseille workforce. The means are not unlimited at OM and the Olympian leaders will have to part with several elements during the off-season. In this sense, our colleagues from The Team understand that several players are candidates for a departure this summer and not the least.

Under, Balerdi, Gueye and Clauss on the start?

Indeed, no less than four players are likely to leave the Marseille ship, starting with Pape Gueye. A logical decision insofar as the former Le Havre is currently on loan (without a purchase option) to FC Sevilla and is no longer in the plans of Igor Tudor. Holder with the Andalusians, he could continue his adventure there since the club is interested in keeping the midfielder.

Then, Leonardo Balerdi will also not be retained by OM. Despite obviously progress, the Argentinian remains irregular and his mistakes cost the Olympians dearly. During the winter transfer window, Ajax Amsterdam had offered 15 million euros to OM to secure their services.

More surprisingly, Cengiz Under and Jonathan Clauss would also be on the way. The Turk, who has played 39 games in all competitions this season, for 3 goals, does not “will not be retained at any cost” reports the daily. For the former Lensois, who arrived only a year ago, The Team claims that it’s the player himself who will be on the lookout for offers this summer.
