A great option for Caleta-Car, 2 to 3 recruits before Sunday? And Clauss is blocking… The 3 OM transfer window news for this Monday!

Like every evening, FCM offers you the 3 OM news of the day! On the program this Monday:

Sevilla FC on Caleta-Car

Duje CALETA CAR

After the arrivals of Gigot, Touré and Mbemba, OM seem well armed in defence. Although Alvaro should also leave Marseille, the club has two other defenders: Balerdi and Luan Peres. This situation once again pushes Duje Caleta Because towards the exit, the Croatian international would have an option on the side of Sevilla FC.

Caleta Car in Monchi’s shortlist

Indeed the Spanish club is preparing after Koundé. The French international defender should be transferred for a figure close to 60 M€, several clubs including Chelsea and FC Barcelona are in the running. Suddenly, Monchi is looking for a replacement and the name of Caleta Car is in a good position.

According to information from Todofichajes, “Duje Caleta-Car is one of the most loved names within the club and more specifically its sporting director, Monchi. The Croatia international has been doing very well for Marseille for some time, coming close last summer to packing his bags for the Premier League. » Longoria would be ready to transfer him for an amount close to €10m. Contacts with Sevilla have already taken place and the operation will only take place after Koundé leaves.

Asked to give his opinion on the player during our Monday show, Ronald Zubar urged the club to sell the former Salzburg player:

Salzburg wanted to get rid of Caleta Car because he was slow — Zubar

“Caleta Because I was not a fan at all to be honest (…) Salzburg wanted to get rid of him because he was slow, it was the feedback I had internally (…) That said, we must recognize, he fought at the start of the season when we wanted him to go, he didn’t leave, he didn’t give up, he did a favor, he was good until recently when he’s been 2.3 games a little below. I find that in what the coach asked for, he transmitted this calm to you, to start from behind, not panic, I’m not a fan but I thought he was good lately. That’s why if we can sell it this summer…” Ronald Zubar – Source: Football Club Marseille (02/05/2022)

Pablo Longoria had announced between 5 and 8 recruits during the presentation of Igor Tudor. The OM president has so far validated three arrivals for the first team (Gigot, Touré and Mbemba). Several players could land this week…

Indeed, according to Provence, OM would like to complete the arrival of two to three new players by Sunday. The first could be Celta Vigo substitute goalkeeper Ruben Blanco if his club finds a replacement for him. If so, the 26-year-old potter is expected to sign on a loan with an option to buy.

Blanco, Clauss, Veretout?

Another hot file, the one leading to Jonathan Clauss, the right piston of RC Lens. OM are negotiating and have already made two refused offers, RCL want €10m but Longoria does not want to pay that much for a player who will soon be 30 and who only has one year left on his contract. On the other side, the option leading to the left piston of Arsenal Nuno Tavares seems to be cooling according to the regional daily. The player would not be convinced by the Marseille project. Finally, Longoria is still looking for a defensive midfielder, the name of Veretout often comes up, while the Bakayoko track does not seem to be activated…

I think we need to sign 5-8 players — Longoria

“It is normal that there are changes in the search for profiles. A player who is comfortable in one style of play, is not necessarily so in another. Last year, we started on profiles to have possession in the middle of the field and we had in particular Boubacar Kamara who had this role of central midfielder. With Igor’s way of playing, the two midfielders will have different characteristics with more intensity, an ability to occupy space. The strategy will therefore change on certain positions. As we said at the last press conference, the objective is to increase the quality of the squad, while giving continuity to the team. With the Champions League, I think we have to sign 5 to 8 players. During the transfer window, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach. I have always said that good leaders are those who have a good ability to adapt, to the club, to the city and to the identity. And also an adaptation to a new coach and his style of play. You always have to meet the expectations of a new coach since he is the one who will develop the players. » Pablo Longoria Press conference (05/07/2022).

2 to 3 recruits this week?

Clauss, Lens will have to make an effort

The emergency for the Olympique de Marseille transfer window is on the sides! Igor Tudor needs strong full-backs and was hoping to land Jonathan Clauss on his right flank to back up/compete Pol Lirola.

Clauss, it’s not progressing?

For the Frenchman, negotiations are tough with RC Lens. The club wants no less than 10 million euros. Provence explains that OM will never go up to that price for a player approaching his thirties. Worse, the Marseille club would not insist if the file does not move forward in the coming days.

“There are dozens of straight pistons on the market,” we would have said on the side of the Commanderie according to La Provence… OM would have made two offers, one of which reached 6 million euros + 1 million in bonuses: all refused by the club from the North.

“The attractiveness of OM has dropped a little” – Astier

“I completely agree, there is another price for Olympique de Marseille, but there is also another element. The attractiveness of OM, today, seems to me to have dropped a little in the minds of the players. Today, the difficulty, for example if we come back to Jonathan Clauss, I think that there are maybe 10 years back Jonathan Clauss he comes on hands at Olympique de Marseille. There, we have to fight 15 million, 20 million. How many players, Dries Mertens who apparently wants to stay in Naples which raises the stakes a bit, I have the impression that our attractiveness, it has gone down a bit in the minds of the players. So, it’s natural, it’s also due to a lack of regular European competition, coach movements too often, there are plenty of reasons. So, if I were once again in the sports management of Olympique de Marseille, I would think about how I become attractive independently of the financial aspect, how I become attractive to make a Jonathan Clauss say “I want to go to the World Cup, I want to be in the France team, Olympique de Marseille seems to me to be the ideal club to do that”. So more than replacing Payet I would reflect on notions like that. » Cyril Astier Source: Football Club Marseille (11/07/2022)
