Foot OM – OM: Alexis Sanchez arrives in Marseille, general alert!

The signing of Alexis Sanchez at OM is imminent, the Chilean international having found an agreement with the Marseille club.

Flamboyant during the first day of Ligue 1 against Reims at the Vélodrome (4-1), Olympique de Marseille is preparing to welcome a reinforcement of weight in the transfer window. And for good reason, unless there is an unlikely turnaround, the reigning vice-champion of France will recruit Alexis Sanchez. In discussions with OM for several weeks, the 33-year-old Chilean international has indeed reached an agreement with Pablo Longoria on the basis of a two-year contract, ie until June 2024. Information confirmed this night by transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano, who explains that the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in Marseille must materialize this week. This Monday, the former FC Barcelona striker must terminate his contract with Inter Milan, which runs until 2023.

Alexis Sanchez at OM, imminent signing

A sizeable reinforcement for Igor Tudor, who will no longer know what to do with all the attackers at his disposal if this continues. And for good reason, the OM coach sent Bamba Dieng to the stands for the match against Reims on Sunday evening while the usual captain Dimitri Payet was on the bench in favor of an attacking trio made up of Arek Milik, Cengiz Ünder and the untouchable Gerson. Ideally, Olympique de Marseille would like to sell one or even two attackers in order to avoid the traffic jam. Pablo Longoria would like to sell Bamba Dieng for 15 to 20 million euros but for now, the Senegalese international is not inclined to leave. The Olympian president, precisely, confirmed Sunday evening on the sidelines of the match between OM and Reims the negotiations in progress for Alexis Sanchez. Proof that the outcome of the case should be favorable, and imminent.

Sanchez “matches” with OM according to Longoria

“To say that he is going to play for OM, no. To say that he is a player with whom we have conversations, yes. It’s a profile that matches completely with what we want to put in place” explained the president of Olympique de Marseille at the microphone of the broadcaster Prime Video, before concluding. “It depends on Inter Milan, who are in a special situation. You always have to respect the clubs” launched Pablo Longoria. Olympian supporters are nevertheless beginning to know their president: when he speaks publicly about a player as he has just done with Alexis Sanchez, it means that the file is extremely advanced. The proof with Jordan Veretout, that Pablo Longoria publicly defended at a press conference on Wednesday… before signing for OM two days later. It now remains to be seen how Igor Tudor intends to use Alexis Sanchez in Provence: at the forefront of his attack or in support of Milik, instead of Cengiz Ünder or Gerson.
