OM: Longoria takes stock of Milik’s future

OM president Pablo Longoria indicated in an interview that he intends to keep Polish Arkadiusz Milik at the end of the season.

After nearly a month missing due to injury, Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik returns to the group called up by Jorge Sampaoli to face Nantes this Wednesday. -2) Last Sunday.

This season, Milik has scored 20 goals in 31 matches for OM in all competitions. All systematically without a holder, Sampaoli often favors a system without a professional centre-forward.

“Millick is attached to the club”

Nevertheless, the second half of the international season has been good, which was interrupted by an injury contracted with Selection in March. In 2022, he is one of the most prolific strikers on the continent with 12 achievements. Suffice it to say OM will do everything it can to keep their centre-forward, given an 18-month loan by Napoli with the option of being bought in 2021, where he no longer plays. A mandatory buy option for the end of June 2022 (8 million + 4 bonus), as explained by The Indian Paper.

“There is a lot of interest around Arek, we are talking about a real striker. But our idea is to keep the best and Milik is attached to the club”, declared OM president Pablo Longoria in TuttoSport’s column.

Pole, who has long posted figures at half-mast, appears to be at the center of the project, even as OM recruited Cedric Bakambu, who could play in his position last winter.

The prospect of competing next season with OM in the Champions League could attract him, and eventually convince him to stay.
