Present at a press conference late Friday afternoon, Pablo Longoria, the president of OM, returned to the summer transfer window of the Marseille club, with a few small revelations.
The summer transfer window closed its doors in the biggest European championships and OM were particularly active, in terms of arrivals and departures. Late Friday afternoon, Pablo Longoria, the president of the Marseille club, took stock during a long press conference.
“There were different offers for Gerson or Guendouzi”
A press point during which the OM boss made a few small revelations. “The club’s economic situation allowed us to retain our best players, those with the highest market value. There were different offers for Gerson or Guendouzi, we turned them down. For Gerson, it was Premier clubs. League, I won’t say the amounts or the offers, and also a Spanish club. For Guendouzi, there was a proposal from Italy. We held on.” dropped Longoria, in remarks reported by The Team.
Another market value of OM, Bamba Dieng was pushed towards the exit throughout the summer, but the Marseille club has not (yet?) managed to sell him, the Nice track not having succeeded , just like those leading to Lorient or Leeds in the last moments of the transfer window.
