In addition to Amine Harit, Pablo Longoria was eyeing a final offensive element this summer to perfect the Marseille transfer window.
Eleven recruits, including the former members of the house, Leonardo Balerdi and Pol Lirola… And not one more! Yes Amine Harit was able to join on the wire loon in this summer transfer window – via the solidarity of its teammates and the understanding of the DNCG – the Marseille club, for lack of sales, could not follow its logic in this twirling transfer market.
Dario Benedetto loaned to Elche, Pablo Longoria was counting on the departure of Boubacar Kamara or Duje Caleta-Car to find an understudy for an Arkadiusz Milik still recovering at this time. Only the Olympian plans were thwarted… ” There is always the position of the coach who wants the ideal for the team and the real situation of the club which is that we could not complete the squad entirely. These are things that you have to understand, accept and you have to work with the players available. We wanted an additional striker “, Confirms without language Jorge Sampaoli.

An element which the Bordelais were seeking to get rid of for themselves to discharge some fee. So, postponement?
