The DNCG releases OM, McCourt and Longoria celebrate

Following a complicated start to the summer transfer window, Olympique de Marseille will finally be able to pass the second on the transfer market thanks to the green light given by the DNCG.

The Marseille club can blow a good blow. Last May, OM was suspended by the financial policeman of French football as part of the review of the financial situation of clubs before the 2022-2023 season. But after long discussions with the leaders of the DNCG, Frank McCourt and Pablo Longoria managed to convince everyone. Indeed, according to information from RMC Sport, “the DNCG was satisfied by its exchanges with OM and by the additional documents provided by the club”.

Frank McCourt having provided solid financial guarantees before promising balance for next season, Marseille will therefore not be sanctioned by the financial policeman, as was the case in 2021 with a supervision of the payroll. Information confirmed by the LFP this Thursday evening, which announces “that no action has been taken by the DNCG against Olympique de Marseille”.

Longoria will be able to launch its ambitious transfer window

Something to delight Pablo Longoria who can therefore launch his recruitment. Directly qualified for the group stage of the Champions League, OM now promises to make a transfer window “ambitious but without overbidding”. But the hardest part will begin for the Spanish president who will have to recruit players to strengthen Jorge Sampaoli’s squad while separating himself from certain undesirable elements, such as Strootman, Radonjic, Amavi or Alvaro. Whatever the case in terms of sales, OM will therefore have more freedom to buy new reinforcements this summer with this green light given by the DNCG.
