The more the days go by, the more a departure becomes clearer in the ranks of Marseille. To the chagrin of the leaders of Marseille.
The poker move attempted by the leaders of theOlympic Marseille may well turn out to be a loser. Landed on loan during the winter transfer window, Pol Lirola fully convinced in the right lane of the Marseille defense, the Spanish defender having no trouble taking the place of a losing Hiroki Sakai. His activity quickly won over Jorge Sampaoli and it seemed certain that OM would lift the option to buy their loan.
The prospect delighted him, determined not to return to Fiorentina. “Pol only thinks of one thing, that the clubs agree on the transfer and that he can continue at the Olympic. He has other options but he only wants to hear about OM, he doesn’t want to come back to Fiorentina ”, thus recently assured his father, Miquel Lirola.
But that was without counting on the financial difficulties of the Olympian club. The 12 million euros claimed by Fiorentina are in fact deemed excessive by the Marseille leaders who therefore did not exercise the option, imagining that they could negotiate a downward transfer. But the position of the Viola is inflexible: Pol Lirola will not leave the Florentine club for less than these 12 million euros. And the Fio is all the more uncompromising as Gennaro Gattuso, recently installed at the head of the team, is keen to keep the Spaniard. Enough to make his return to Marseille more and more hypothetical after his vacation.
