Unhappy with his replacement status, Gerson wants to leave Olympique de Marseille this winter. The midfielder seemed to be heading for a return to Flamengo but the two clubs fail to agree. A situation that Jorge Sampaoli could take advantage of at Sevilla FC.
While we thought his official departure, Gerson may not be about to leave Olympique de Marseille. The midfielder does not hide his feelings because of his substitute status. And his father Marcão had even publicly expressed his anger. No problem for President Pablo Longoria who opens the door wide to the Brazilian. The proof, the leader authorized his player to join his native country before the World Cup break. Gerson then seemed to be heading for a return to Flamengo.
🗣💬 “It’s true that we are in negotiations with Flamengo.”

Only then, the two clubs fail to agree on a transfer fee. Olympique de Marseille would like to get closer to the 20 million euros invested in the summer of 2021. A sum too high for Flamengo’s finances. Last week, Pablo Longoria therefore put the pressure. ” For the moment, there is no agreement. (…) If there is no agreement, and we are talking about a player who has value, he will be reinstated in the team “warned the Spaniard. A week later, it was the turn of his Flamengo counterpart Marcos Braz to attempt a bluff.
Flamengo does not have the means
” It’s not closed for Gersonhe told ESPN. It’s very difficult on the numbers because of the price that had been paid by OM. Flamengo would like to rely on the player. The player too. But it doesn’t work like that. For his part, Jorge Sampaoli goes straight to the point. The former coach of Olympique de Marseille, now on the bench of Sevilla FC, is very interested in Gerson. The daily Sport confirms that the Argentinian has requested several signatures from his leaders, including that of the undesirable Marseille. It remains to be seen whether the Andalusian club will be able to meet the requirements of the vice-champion of France.
