Very little used Marseille for two months, Luis Suarez could leave OM this winter. A Spanish club thinks the Colombian striker.
Luis Suarez plays little with OM
Where did Luis Suarez go? Recruited last summer by Olympique de Marseille for around 10 million euros, the 24-year-old striker has gradually disappeared from the radar in recent weeks.
Reduced playing time
Used regularly at the start of the season, at least in a substitute role, the Colombian had taken advantage of his first two months in the Marseille city to score three goals, including a double against Reims (4-1) during the 1st day of the League 1, and provide an assist. Encouraging statistics but insufficient to hide its technical shortcomings. Draft and clumsy in the last gesture, he then lost credit over the weeks.
Since the beginning of October, his playing time has been 45 minutes: 34 minutes against AC Ajaccio (1-2) in the league, then 4 minutes against Frankfurt (1-2) and 7 minutes against Tottenham (1 -2) in the Champions League. For Igor Tudor, the South American does not seem to have the qualities required to play more regularly in the Olympian jersey. The Croat even now prefers the former banished Bamba Dieng.
Cadiz thinks Suarez
Suarez’s situation attracts the attention of several clubs looking for a striker for the second half of the season. This is the case of Cadiz. According to Spanish media El Desmarque, the 19th in La Liga wants an attacking reinforcement in January. With this in mind, the Spanish leaders have inscribed the name of the Marseillais on their tablets.
The Andalusian formation wants to recruit a player capable of adapting quickly to La Liga, and this is the case of a player who has played in Spain for several years. In addition, the good performances of the native of Santa Marta under the colors of Real Zaragoza and Granada have not been forgotten in Spain. It remains to be seen whether Cadiz will take action by making an offer.
OM is ready to discuss
In Marseille, the door is open. Recently asked about Suarez’s future, Pablo Longoria did not rule out the player’s departure at least in January. In what form ? The president of OM has not yet decided. We always have to think about players who are less used in the squad. You always have to ask yourself this question. (…) We have invested a lot and we must have the right thinking , explained the Spaniard. If a club offered around €10 million, the Marseille leader shouldn’t think long…
