Harit, Kluivert, Mertens… What changes the arrival of Tudor for the OM transfer window

The Marseille club should soon ratify the signing of Igor Tudor for two seasons. The Croatian coach will have to quickly look into the transfer window, while some files worked on by OM have not evolved favorably in recent hours.


The OM transfer window suffered a small earthquake with the departure of Jorge Sampaoli on Friday. The Argentinian coach has decided to let go of the Marseille club following disagreements over recruitment. Some sources like The Team claimed that the Argentinian had unrealistic demands, demanding for example the arrival of Antoine Griezmann (Atlético Madrid) or Renato Sanches (Lille). His announced successor, Igor Tudor, will quickly have to work on the files of the Olympian transfer window. And some should not be easy to conclude.

It gets complicated for Kluivert and Harit?

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Justin Kluivert operation has come to a halt. It is not obvious that the Dutch international is compatible with the game advocated by Igor Tudor, who is not used to fielding wingers. The Italian daily says that Jose Mourinho could finally decide to keep him at AS Roma this summer. Sports1 believes that Amine Harit’s case has taken a turn for the worse with the departure of Jorge Sampaoli. Schalke 04 reportedly haven’t received any offers for the Morocco international, who were reportedly disappointed by the news of the Argentine’s resignation. Finally, some rumors from Italy have announced a new rapprochement between Dries Mertens and the Marseille club. At the end of the contract with Napoli, the player has not been extended and is free to join the team he wants.

As a reminder, OM have so far registered the arrivals of Samuel Gigot (ex-Spartak Moscow) and Isaak Touré (ex-Le Havre). The Marseille club also exercised the purchase options of Pau Lopez (ex-AS Roma), Mattéo Guendouzi (ex-Arsenal), Cengiz Under (ex-AS Roma) and Arek Milik (ex-Naples).
