Returning to Olympique de Marseille after being loaned to Cagliari, where he was not really satisfied and where he could not stay in any case due to relegation to the second division, Kevin Strootman was quickly called up to leave. but where?
OM would have liked to see Strootman wear this shirt for another year.
Ah, if Cagliari stays in Serie A… Kevin Strootman’s adventure in Marseille was about to end, we were not so lucky. A sentence was heard in the mouth of one of the leaders of Olympique de Marseille, and it was published in L’Equipe on Wednesday.
Because yes, if the second in Ligue 1 skates at transfer level in terms of arrivals, he has already scored the 32-year-old midfielder’s comeback. Real pebbles in President Pablo Longoria’s shoes.
OM thought they’d see him finish Cagliari
Last summer, after being sent to Genoa for six months, the OM chief thought he had gotten rid of him for good by completing a two-year loan with Cagliari. By awarding 60% of the salary, of course, but that ensured Marseille would keep Strutmann out of the Commandery until his contract expired in 2023. In the end, nothing will happen. And anyway, Batavian No regrets in SardiniaTeam details on Wednesday.
He played a lot at first, before abandoning the coach’s plans and undergoing surgery on his left knee again in December. A rumor even suggested a return to Marseilles from last winter, but finally in July Longoria took back the poisoned gift from his predecessor, Jacques-Henri Eyro. As a reminder, he – on the advice of former coach Rudi Garcia – spent €25 million to buy Strutmann from Roma in 2018.
Now, what do you do with Strutmann?
Now, what do you do with Strutmann? OM supporters doubt: The Dutch midfielder was called to leave quickly. And very quickly, even if it allows the management to provide at least a monthly payment of 550 thousand euros. So the latter sent a clear message to the player in it He politely indicates his dismissalthe team writes this Wednesday: Strootman is not training with the group, and his clients are invited to find a final way out for him.
It remains to be seen who will welcome him. Only a loan with the support of part of the salary or a friendly termination seems possible, because no high-ranking club would risk buying its last year of contract. But, according to the team, Batavian representatives do not intend to make any gift: When he finds a club, the parties will change about the last year of his contract, and his clan tries to extract most of the monthly payments from OMCan we read in the daily newspaper.
Strootman opened his departure to the Middle East
Unless a wealthy Middle Eastern club saves OM’s resources, burdened with the Dutchman’s salary? According to the sports daily, the former Roma pendulum will now be open for trial in the Gulf states. She entrusted her representatives to make the link, because Strootman has no future in Marseille. And it may never symbolize the failure and identity of Jacques-Henri Eyro’s presidency.
