Thoroughly on the track leading to Flamengo and his midfielder Gerson, OM must battle with serious competition. Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid would have recently joined the dance!
The Ligue 1 season is now closed and OM have qualified for the next edition of the Europa League. A nice surprise in the end given the initial situation left by André Villas-Boas when he was ousted. To restart the machine next season, Pablo Longoria and Pablo Longoria want to make some changes within the OM squad. If departures are already registered, arrivals should quickly appear on the Canebière. For several weeks, OM has been on a thorny case: the Gerson track.
The 24-year-old Brazilian, midfielder of Flamengo, is a priority target for Marseille management. Estimated at 25 million euros by his club, he seemed to want to join Ligue 1 before a European cador broke into the case. According to TNT Sports Brazil, Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid are said to have entered into discussions with Flamengo. Two new competitors who could well make Gerson drift all the way to Spain without going through the Olympique de Marseille square.
Other specificity in the file, according to information from the Phocean, many intermediaries would curb this operation and hamper the progress of negotiations with the Marseille club. A situation favorable to competition which could well steal Gerson from the hands of Pablo Longoria.
