Mercato OM: Longoria’s feelings about William Saliba’s statements
This Sunday, William Saliba said he wanted to show Arsenal their true colours. For Pablo Longoria, this does not change anything. He absolutely wants to keep it!
Author of an incredible season with OM, William Saliba is not guaranteed to stay next season. Loaned without an option to buy by Arsenal, he would like to return to the Gunners to show them the true face of him as he explained to Téléfoot.
However, according to La Provence, this statement would not change anything in Pablo Longoria’s wishes. Instead of cooling him down in this case, the words of the French central defender do not make the Marseille president tremble, who still wants to stay with him. It is one of the priorities of this transfer window for Longoria.
At Arsenal I played zero games and I still want to show them my true face — Saliba
The French international had shown his desire to stay in Marseille to be able to play in the Champions League. At the Téléfoot microphone, he says clearly that he wants to show the Gunners that he has the quality to evolve in this squad.

“If there was a word to describe the season? Surprising… or magical. This is my first full season. I wanted to show who I really am. It is a very positive balance and the truth is that I am very happy with my season. I was a little apprehensive because, well, Marseille when you have an eye from the outside, you say: ‘Oh yes, that’s good, but it’s decisive’ And that’s why I had this little lump in my stomach that said to me: ‘There you’re going to a club and you shouldn’t laugh, you shouldn’t have fun, you should play every game to the fullest’. It’s like I’ve stayed for at least 2 or 3 years, it’s really special. Even if I don’t go back to Marseille, I will never forget it. Thanks to OM I took a big step in my career and they were the ones who gave me a boost (…) I belong to Arsenal, I still have two years left. I would go back to Arsenal. I played zero games and I still want to show them my true face and have the opportunity to play for these fans and this great club. But it’s not just up to me. In any case, leaving like this would be a shame. » William Saliba – Source: Telefoot (05/06/22)
“It’s like I’ve stayed for at least 2-3 years, it’s really special. Even if I don’t go back to Marseille, I will never forget it. Thanks to OM I took a big step in my career and they were the ones who pushed me forward. »

Mercato OM: A surprise club wants Payet and he would be sure to get there!
The transfer window has only just begun and the proposals begin to multiply. According to Footmercato, an incredible club would have come to Dimitri Payet’s information. In fact, the Mexican club Tigres, who had already signed Florian Thauvin and André-Pierre Gignac for OM, would like to repeat the experience with the number 10 from Marseille.
This is pretty amazing news that has dropped. Dimitri Payet, the star player of OM is being tracked by the Mexican club Tigres. Author of a very good season scoring 12 goals and 10 assists in Ligue 1. Authentic metronome of the Olympic club, the one who wears the armband almost all year round, still has a two-year contract with OM.
From the height of his 35 years, the best European clubs do not logically compete for him. A top-level player, Payet has shown that he can play in the best competitions, like at West Ham when he floated in the Premier League. Whoever announced his love for Marseille, for the Olympic club should logically not leave OM unless he allows himself to be seduced by an exotic destination where the Frenchman has walked like his former teammate Gignac, a true legend of the championship Mexican.

A more than comfortable salary!
According to the newspaper El Futbolero, and according to information from the local radio in Monterrey RG La Deportiva, the Tigres de Monterrey club would have set their sights on the Marseille playmaker. The Mexican club already has two Frenchmen and former Marseillais in its team, Thauvin and Gignac, whom he managed to convince to leave Europe to join them. However, it is unknown if this information is a real clue or if it is a name that came out without further information. But in any case economically, the Tigers trust this file.
The Mexican team finished second in the last closing of the championship crowned with a playoff semifinal. However, signing Payet and convincing him to join them would involve sacrifices, including parting ways with Thauvin. The media believes that the right back would not have convinced everyone in Monterrey and in case of interesting offers, the Mexican leaders would show him the way out. Therefore, the leaders of Marseille will have to deal with this fierce interest in Payet, to see now what the Marseille number 10 will do.
Mercato OM: Classrooms question Longoria about this Ligue 2 player!
In time tracked by OM, Johann Lepenant will have to head to Lyon, where he will sign in the next few days. The operation could be closed for an amount of about 6 million euros, not counting bonuses.
According to information confirmed by L’Équipe, Johann Lepenant will commit to Lyon. The Stade Malherbe de Caen midfielder would have agreed a contract with the management until June 2027. His transfer should bring in 6 million euros, plus bonuses. An agreement has been reached between both clubs and the defensive midfielder’s contract must be provided with a resale percentage. At 19, Lepenant was followed by many clubs in France, including OM and AS Monaco, who would have liked to overtake Lyon, who have long been in the lead on this issue. One thing is almost certain, Johann Lepenant should discover Ligue 1 next season, he who had made a decisive pass in Ligue 2 with Caen.

TEAM INFORMATION. Caen’s young midfielder Johann Lepenant (19), a priority for Lyon leaders for several months, will join OL for the next five seasons. https://t.co/0J5GVtmcUe pic.twitter.com/ECgedoaK2f

The defensive midfielder was long tracked by the club for Monaco to replace Tchouaméni who was about to leave for Real Madrid. OM saw Lepenant as the perfect replacement for Boubacar Kamara. Evoluant au post de milieu défensif, mais pouvant tout de même évoluer un cran plus haut sur le terrain, Johann Lepenant n’avait plus qu’un an de contrat et aurait été recruté à moindre coût, ce qui aurait été parfait pour les finances pour the club.
