Will the summer of 2022 be marked by the return of a French international to Ligue 1, and moreover to a major club? It is still a bit early to say for sure, but the Jordan Veretout track at Olympique de Marseille has perhaps never been so close to completion. According to our information, the 29-year-old midfielder, whose contract with AS Roma runs until June 2024, is getting a little closer to the Orange Vélodrome over the minutes.
Little information has been filtered on the details of this operation, but we seem to be heading towards a loan of the man with 5 capes with the Blues. The two teams are discussing and the negotiations are progressing well. The good relations maintained between Pablo Longoria, the Olympian president, and the management of La Louve for several months mean that the talks are progressing in the right direction, even if nothing has yet been finalized.
Veretout between Milan and Marseille
In lack of playing time in the Italian capital under the orders of José Mourinho, the player trained at FC Nantes intends to take matters into his own hands in order to obtain more playing time in the coming months, leaving to change air this summer. Especially since Jordan Veretout carefully keeps in the back of his mind the objective of competing in the 2022 World Cup with France.
Passed by Aston Villa then AS Saint-Étienne before landing in Serie A at Fiorentina in 2017, the native of Ancenis had been recruited by Roma in January 2020 in exchange for a check for 17.5 M €. Having forged a solid reputation on the other side of the Alps, Jordan Veretout is also ardently courted by AC Milan, the reigning Italian champions. OM knows what to expect.
