In search of an attacking midfielder at the end of this summer mercato, the president of Olympique de Marseille Pablo Longoria had a failure on the file of the player of Atalanta Bergamo Ruslan Malinovskyi. To forget the Ukrainian, the Spaniard will console himself with the return of Schalke 04 talent Amine Harit.
It is no secret that Olympique de Marseille, already very active in this summer market, should still animate the last day of this transfer period. In addition to several desired departures, the president of Marseille, Pablo Longoria, also has the objective of completing the recruitment of an attacking midfielder. And in this position, the great priority of the Spaniard was already known: the player of Atalanta Bergamo Ruslan Malinovskyi.
- Harit with a new loan!
Despite an agreement found with Ukraine, OM was seriously cooled by the greed of the Dea in negotiations for a dry transfer. To the point of completely scuppering this deal? Obviously yes. For his part, the journalist Johnny Severin ensures that the talent of Schalke 04 Amine Harit will make his return to the vice-champion of France in title this Thursday! Already loaned to the French vice-champion last season, the Moroccan international will be loaned again, with an almost compulsory purchase option, to Marseille. Highly appreciated in the Olympic dressing room, the former Nantes has made an interesting 2021-2022 exercise, with attractive performances on several sequences, in the colors of the OM for a record of 4 goals and 4 assists in 23 games of Ligue 1.
- Moroccan’s patience rewarded
As often, Harit’s will made the difference in this now expected move. On the departure of Schalke for several weeks, the native of Pontoise, although courted by several Premier League formations like Leicester, preferred to wait until the last moment in the hope of a sign of Longoria. And his patience seems to be rewarded! As last summer, Harit should close the XXL site of the boss of OM.
