Cédric Bakambu, already ejected by OM?

Recruited in January, Cédric Bakambu has already been pushed towards leaving OM after the signing of Luis Suarez.

Author of four goals in Ligue 1 with Olympique de Marseille during the second half of last season, Cédric Bakambu had not established himself as a holder in the eyes of Jorge Sampaoli. This season, the competition will be even tougher for the Congolese under the orders of Igor Tudor with the presence of Payet, Milik, Dieng but also Luis Suarez, the new Olympian recruit. Marseille, which has often lacked offensive solutions, now finds itself overloaded in this sector of play and could well sacrifice an attacker. Bamba Dieng has offers (Fribourg, Premier League), but the Senegalese is not the player that Pablo Longoria wants to sell first. According to the echoes of the Africa Foot United site, it is indeed Cédric Bakambu who is kindly pushed towards the exit by the OM staff.

Cédric Bakambu sacrificed by OM in the transfer window?

The 31-year-old striker helped out last season and scored some important goals against Lens, Nice and Strasbourg. But probably, he is the player least compatible with the game philosophy of Igor Tudor, who likes fast attackers (Dieng, Luis Suarez) or those capable of receiving with his head the centers of the pistons so dear to his device (Milik ). Cédric Bakambu, whose salary at Olympique de Marseille is very high, will thus not be retained in the event of a proposal during this summer transfer window. Still, the Congolese is under contract with OM until June 2024 and there is little chance that he will be open to leaving. It now remains for Pablo Longoria to convince him to pack his bags while at the same time, the boss of Olympique de Marseille would also like to send Jordan Amavi, Pol Lirola and Sead Kolasinac. The situation of Duje Caleta-Car, whose level remains very good but who is coming to the end of his contract in a year, is more delicate.
