24hfootnews OM, departure of Guendouzi: new important details


While Mattéo Guendouzi is announced on the departure, Pablo Longoria took the floor to take stock of this file.

Aligned this Wednesday on the lawn of Troyes in a meeting well negotiated by Olympique de Marseille (2-0), Mattéo Guendouzi may be living his last hours with the Marseille club. The French international is announced with authority on the side of Aston Villa. Several media are reporting an upcoming offer from the Birmingham club. The Villans would be ready to line up 40 million euros to secure the services of the French vice-world champion.

Longoria breaks the silence on the Guendouzi case

Can Olympique de Marseille sell their player at this price? The current market situation could encourage the club’s management to let go of Guendouzi. But this operation is like a dilemma for Pablo Longoria, because the player, very attached to OM, has established himself over the months as a strong link in the team. Present at a press conference this Thursday to take stock, Longoria preferred to kick into touch.

I read the press like you. Today, there are no conversations between clubs, we did not have an offer, dropped the president of OM. I don’t know if there are any with the player’s entourage but we don’t have any between clubs.

The Spanish leader has a clear idea of ​​the team’s attacking sector, while Guendouzi has already used up front in a hybrid role. “We want to play with three offensive players. After Amine’s injury, we are looking for an offensive player capable of sneaking into spaces with the possibility of percussion and ball control over 30-40 meters. The strategy is to finish the season with 20 players with rotations of three players on the sides (Tavares, Clauss, Kaboré). »
