Placed on the market this summer to recover some cash, Duje Caleta-Car does not attract clubs. Suddenly, Olympique de Marseille will not do the forcing to part with it.
After a difficult 2020-2021 season, Olympique de Marseille had promised a big cleaning this summer during the transfer window. The owner of the club Frank McCourt and its president Pablo Longoria had for example promised 11 recruits and 14 departures several weeks ago. And the Marseille club is clearly on all fronts. On the arrivals side, everything is rolling since Gerson (Flamengo), Konrad de la Fuente (FC Barcelona), Leonardo Balerdi (BvB), Cengiz Ünder (AS Roma), Mattéo Guendouzi (Arsenal) and Pau Lopez (AS Roma) have already come strengthen the team, while waiting for Luan Peres or William Saliba.
And precisely, speaking of defense, the Olympian leaders aim, in the event of a satisfactory offer, to let Duje Caleta-Car leave to recover some cash, and free up the payroll even if Florian Thauvin, Valère Germain or even Kevin Strootman are no longer there. Boubacar Kamara is also in the same case, but the French Espoirs international now plays in the middle. Problem, The team explained this Saturday that there was some interest for the Croatian but no interesting offer on the table. Suddenly, OM could change their minds.
A departure only in the event of an interesting offer
As advance Provence this Sunday, Olympique de Marseille does not rule out any possibility for the great 24-year-old defender who comes out of a 2020/21 exercise with 39 appearances in all competitions (2 goals, 1 assist). The local daily confirms the information from L’Equipe on the few satisfactory offers but adds a small additional revelation. Because despite an imposing salary and the fact that it is on the market, Duje Caleta-Car could be kept if no one offers a nice sum of money this summer.
As a reminder, Liverpool had been forcing in the home stretch of the winter transfer window a few months ago to recruit the Croatian international (16 caps) but the main concerned had finally remained on the Canebière. “It could have been a big step for my career but I am focusing on OM”, then confessed Duje Caleta-Car. Will there be a new opportunity this summer? Response in the coming weeks.
