Lazovic at OM, Longoria can curse Strootman

OM are very interested in the possibility of signing Darko Lazovic from Hellas Verona to their squad. But the file slows down on an important point…

The Marseille management wants to spend the second on the transfer market. But OM want above all to get rid of certain undesirables. This is the case of players like Alvaro Gonzalez or Kevin Strootman. If he is no longer part of Marseille’s plans at all, the Dutchman still has a one-year contract with OM and today remains the highest salary in Igor Tudor’s squad. Indeed, Strootman continues to receive 6 million euros per season. A huge salary that OM can no longer afford to give a player. Reason why the club invites the former Roma to leave. But the latter wants to take his time and will not give the Marseille management any gift. However, we could soon witness the end of the soap opera Strootman, linked to that of Darko Lazovic.

Lazovic at OM, Strootman can unlock everything

Indeed, the Serbian player from Hellas Verona is apparently keen on the idea of ​​signing for Marseille. Everything is even ready for his arrival. But now, the latter depends on Strootman. On this subject, the two clubs are struggling to get along. According to information from Phocean, negotiations between the Italian club and OM are well underway. The objective for Verona is to make the Marseillais pay a good part of Strootman’s salary, as was the case last season during his loan to Cagliari. It remains to be seen what the amount will be. In any case, if the negotiations are successful, OM will say goodbye to Strootman at the end of next season, which will greatly relieve its coffers. This will also strengthen the workforce of Tudor with the arrival of Lazovic, a hard-working midfielder who the new Croatian coach of Olympique de Marseille knows very well.
