Axel Witsel, the dream of OM close to coming true!
To replace Boubacar Kamara who left for Aston Villa, OM has positioned itself on the Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel. An option that could seem difficult financially but the offer of OM would hold more than ever the string.
A team that is up to the challenge of major European events. Qualified for the next Champions League after finishing second in Ligue 1, OM can’t miss its summer mercato. With 50 million euros in the coffers, Marseille can be ambitious in the area of player purchases. It is necessary to improve the team and already replace those who have deserted the Olympic club. In midfield, a place was left free by Boubacar Kamara, who left for Aston Villa. The OM has then put itself on the ranks of Axel Witsel. The Belgian arrives at the end of his contract at Borussia Dortmund.
OM gave the best offer to Witsel
Many observers considered the hypothesis of this transfer a bit fanciful financially. Witsel received more than 630,000 euros per month from Dortmund. In addition, the experienced Belgian midfielder is attracting interest from several European clubs, which could increase the price in terms of signing bonus and salary. However, in the last few hours, it appeared that OM was the best placed team to sign Witsel this summer. This information was confirmed by journalist Karim Bennani on Twitter.
For the moment, the most convincing club would be OM who would offer an interesting contract to the Belgian international. There is talk of a lease of 2 years + 1 year. While Atletico Madrid, which is very interested in the player, would only offer 1+1, “wrote the journalist of Amazon Prime. Good news for Marseille fans in view of the CV of Axel Witsel, who has played for Benfica, Zenith and Dortmund. A good plan also for the player who wants to stay in shape for the World Cup 2022 with Belgium. If he manages to finance the operation, it would be above all a first coup for Pablo Longoria in this summer 2022, which would strike hard in the world of Ligue 1.
