After Alexis Sanchez, OM will continue their transfer window to Manchester City. The Marseillais will obtain the loan of the right side Issa Kaboré. An arrival that is no longer hampered by a few administrative details.
As the group stage of the Champions League looms in a month, OM can be calm. The Marseillais had to recruit en masse to be efficient on all fronts and they did not go with dead hands. Already nine new players have been presented at the Stade Vélodrome, including Alexis Sanchez, Jordan Veretout, Luis Suarez and Jonathan Clauss. And it’s not over. Indeed, while Pol Lirola leaves for Elche, he must find a replacement for the position of right side. The latter will be none other than Issa Kaboré, the 21-year-old Burkinabé who will be loaned by Manchester City.
Kaboré at OM, it only depends on a few lines of contract
Kaboré has been followed for several weeks by the team of Pablo Longoria. The Marseille club has finally taken action in recent days to recover this talented player. Kaboré had been recruited by Manchester City from the Belgian club Mechelen in 2020. This very good piston, quality counter-attacker, never had a chance with the Citizens. He returned to Mechelen on loan before playing the last season in Ligue 1 for Troyes with 32 matches.
Done deal and confirmed. Olympique Marseille have reached an agreement with Manchester City for Issa Kaboré on loan until June 2023. 🚨🔵 #OM

The next stage of his European tour of loans therefore stops in Marseille. The Phocaeans will complete his arrival for a season with a purchase option set at 20 million euros. If all parties agree, administrative details prevent the file from being concluded according to the newspaper Provence. This pushes back the signing of Kaboré, who will not commit until at least Monday. A small setback without consequence for the person concerned and OM, the main thing being to be quickly available for national or even European deadlines.
