Despite his intention to return to Flamengo this winter, midfielder Gerson has yet to leave Olympique de Marseille. In question, the inability of the two clubs to agree on the amount of a transfer…
And if Gerson remained OM on this winter transfer window?
It is no longer a secret, Gerson intends to leave Olympique de Marseille as soon as possible. Downgraded under the orders of coach Igor Tudor after having taken on the role of boss with Jorge Sampaoli last season, the Brazilian has only participated in two of the last eight meetings of the Phocens, for a meager record of 20 minutes spent on the pitch. . Unhappy, the midfielder hopes to leave this winter to find his former club, Flamengo.
Information directly confirmed by the various parties involved in this case, but a matter far from settled.
Flamengo president warns OM
Because, for the time being, the negotiations are dragging on and even seem to be stuck, at the moment when the two curies cannot agree on the amount of a transfer of the 25-year-old talent. In this context, Gerson is still far from a departure. And in the columns of the newspaper L’Equipe on Thursday, the president of Flamengo Rodolfo Landim even put pressure on the Olympians. He (Gerson) has a current contract with OM. There have been discussions but we are very far from having reached an agreementunderlined the leader.
It is a very complicated operation to carry out. With the player and his staff, we agree. Flamengo loves Gerson and we would like to have him with us. But, the way things are going, I have a feeling it’s going to be very difficult., added the boss of the recent Copa Libertadores winner. A clear message for his counterpart Pablo Longoria…
A game of poker starts?
As you will have understood, Flamengo does not intend to ruin itself on this operation, and intends above all to rely on Gerson’s desire to leave Marseille to achieve his ends. From then on, a poker game seems launched by the Brazilian club, which is reluctant to pay the 15 million euros claimed by OM in order to limit the damage concerning a substantial investment made in 2021 in the amount of 25 million euros. And at the same time, the reigning vice-champion of France is also putting pressure on by mentioning a possible return of Gerson to La Canebire for the second half of the season… A soap opera to follow.
In your opinion, will Gerson finally return to Flamengo? Do you believe the Brazilian is capable of returning to OM and earning his place in Igor Tudor’s eleven? Don’t hesitate to react and debate in the area add a comment …
