OM close to an agreement with Alexis Sanchez?
We’re talking aboutAlexis Sanchez at OM. Confirming recent information from foreign media, Provence indicates that the Marseille club is actively working on the arrival of the 33-year-old Chilean international striker. Whether “the positions are very close between the player and the Marseille club“, the person concerned is however not yet at the Vélodrome. Far from it. Two conditions will have to be met to reach this conclusion according to the regional daily. First, Alexis Sanchez should be released from his last year of contract at Inter Milan to land free. Then, OM should sell one of their attackers. It is therefore not won, especially since the contacts between the Lombard club and the former player of Barcelona, Arsenal and Manchester United, who must receive 7 M € in 2022-23, are not fruitful, as summarized the Corriere dello Sport. So far, Alexis Sanchez, who has been announced close to… Paris Saint-Germain in recent years, has rejected all offers from the Nerazzurri to break his contract. The price offered by Inter, where he signed in 2019, does not suit him. Note that, according to Fabrizio Romano and various other sources, OM will recruit the Portuguese side Nuno Mendes from Arsenal. It is a question of a loan without an option to buy. Luan Peres will leave the Vélodrome: Fenerbahçe has announced an agreement in principle for his transfer.
