Even if Olympique de Marseille has made good progress in its recruitment, the Thiago Almada track is still relevant for the Phocéens.
TheOlympic Marseille has already been very active in his recruitment, attracting Gerson, Konrad de la Fuente, Cengiz Under, Luan Peres, Matteo Guendouzi, William Saliba and Pau Lopez, while keeping Leonardo Balerdi (transferred permanently by Dortmund). But it is probably not over for the Phocaeans.
Already mentioned several weeks ago, the Thiago Almada track (20 years old) is still relevant today. The talented Argentine attacking midfielder is even Jorge Sampaoli’s current priority, according to the TuttoMercatoWeb site.
Almada, who plays in his home country at Velez Sarsfield, is currently playing the Olympic Games with the Albiceleste. Unexpectedly, he was not on the scoresheet for Argentina’s first meeting against Australia (2-0 loss).
We will monitor the post game (after defeat) to find out the reason. Choice of Batista (quite surprising), injury (strange not to communicate), negotiation with the #TeamOM (that does not prevent him from playing …)
Vélez will appreciate having released it https://t.co/titrYFrXq2
