After completing the transfer of Gerson, Olympique de Marseille seems to have passed the second for Boca Juniors winger Cristian Pavon.
The summer transfer window officially opened on Wednesday, June 9, and Olympique de Marseille did not wait long to reassure its fans. Because this afternoon, the Marseille club reached an agreement in principle with Flamengo for the transfer of midfielder Gerson. With this issue now settled, Olympian leaders can look into other avenues. And one of them leads to Cristian Pavon.
A few days ago, the Argentinian media TNT Sports effectively affirmed that OM, and more particularly Jorge Sampaoli, wanted to secure the services of the Boca Juniors player. A simple interest at first, but the decision makers in Marseille have decided to step up a gear according to the latest information published on the other side of the Atlantic.
Dario Benedetto included in the transfer?
As explained Olé and TNT Sports, Olympique de Marseille went on the offensive, making an offer to the Argentine club for 50% of the player’s rights. With timeshare which is prohibited in France, this operation could then end with 50% on the resale. And to try to crack the Xeneise, OM would think of including Dario Benedetto in the transaction. Unfortunately, the latter would like to stay in Europe.
For the moment, no amount has been revealed but OM are indeed working on this track. Passed by the Los Angelex Galaxy, will the 25-year-old right winger take the plunge by coming to a European club? Business to follow, but the Marseille group really likes the South American market. Quite simply, the Jorge Sampaoli touch.
