Looking for reinforcements for next season, OM could hurt PSG a lot with a former star of the QSI project. The big rumor launched recently by the foreign press is now confirmed in France.
OM contacted David Luiz’s agent
After getting his hands on Gerson for € 20m and in negotiations with AC Milan for Rafael Leao, Pablo Longoria continues to scrutinize the transfer market in order to offer Jorge Sampaoli a competitive team for next season. And according to newspaper information The source, a former Paris Saint-Germain executive could indeed land at the Olympique de Marseille by August 31. The regional daily assures this Sunday that Pablo Longoria, OM president, is interested in the profile of David Luiz.
Contacts have even already been established between the Marseille leaders and the agent of the Brazilian central defender. Moreover, the idea of an arrival in Marseille was not at all rejected by the former vice-captain of PSG (2014-2016). Alexandre Jacquin, the author of the article, indicates that Jorge Sampaoli adores the 34-year-old and pushes in the direction of his signature.
Mercato OM: David Luiz interested in the Marseille challenge?
“The idea of evolving under the orders of the former coach of Chile and Argentina is likely to motivate him to accept the Marseille challenge”, explains the regional media. An excellent deal for the Marseille club since Longoria should not pay any transfer fees for David Luiz. Indeed, Brazilian international is at the end of his contract with Arsenal and he will not extend. His departure has even already been recorded on the side of the Gunners. Looking for a new base, David Luiz could therefore ignore the old quarrel between PSG and OM to sign his comeback in Ligue 1 under the Marseille jersey.
In search of defensive reinforcements in particular to compensate for the possible departure of Duje Caleta-Car, but also the uncertainty concerning Leonardo Balerdi, Longoria is about to strike a big blow with the former Parisian.
