Mercato – Axel Witsel would have refused the offer of OM and would be on his way to Atlético de Madrid

Marseille would have been beaten. Despite the proposal made by OM, Axel Witsel would have accepted, according to RTBF, the contract proposal made by Atlético de Madrid. At the end of the day, Saturday, Cadena SER confirmed the information.

It would have been enough according to the Belgian media of a visit of the sporting director of Atlético, Andrea Berta, and an interview with Diego Simeone to convince the player. He will sign a one-year contract on Tuesday with an option for an additional season with the Colchoneros.

A strategy to be defined

The amount of the contract is not yet known, but, according to information from L’Equipe, the Spaniards’ financial proposal was more interesting for the player, despite the additional season offered by OM. This failure, if confirmed, illustrates the difficulty of the Marseille project. Qualified for the Champions League, the Phocaeans are logically looking for experienced players, but these cost more than what Marseille currently offers its players.

Everything therefore risks having to be redone for Pablo Longoria and for his new director of football Javier Ribalta. After the departure of Boubacar Kamara for Aston Villa, OM must find a medium. Beyond that, Marseille are looking for guarantees to avoid a difficult European campaign, while the club remains on 14 defeats in 15 Champions League matches.
