INFO RMC SPORT. Thiago Almada, the young Argentinian midfielder from Vélez Sarsfield, gave his agreement in principle to OM.
OM advance on a reinforcement of weight and have just passed an important stage. According to our information, the 20-year-old Argentinian attacking midfielder Thiago Almada has given his agreement in principle to OM. The agreement reached would relate to a five-year contract. According to a source familiar with the matter, discussions have started with Vélez. There remains a major problem for OM: the Argentine club is asking for at least 15 million euros excluding bonus for the young hopeful of the Argentine selection. The Argentinian club knows that Thiago Almada already enjoys a big rating in Europe, without ever having evolved there.
OM is exploring several avenues in parallel
In parallel with these discussions with thiago Almada, OM also discusses with the entourage of Toulouse Amine Adli (20 years). Negotiations have been going on for several months now, but the player and his entourage have not yet made their choice. The Toulousain is courted by several big French clubs. To anticipate all the possibilities, Marseille President Pablo Longoria has advanced, according to our information, on two other tracks whose names have not yet filtered.
Friday, OM extended their left side Jordan Amavi, while they are sure to lose their world champion striker, Florian Thauvin. The latter will join the Monterrey Tigers next season, the Mexican club announced on its Twitter account on Friday. Thauvin, 28, came to the end of his contract with OM at the end of the season and could therefore join the club of his choice, without transfer compensation. He joined OM in 2013 and played there since, apart from six months at Newcastle during the 2015-2016 season. By joining the Tigers, Thauvin puts an end to the uncertainty surrounding the rest of his career. Discussions had been opened with OM around a possible contract extension, but they were therefore unsuccessful.
