Olympique de Marseille has not been sanctioned by the DNCG. The Phocaeans will be able to move forward with their recruitment.

Green light forOlympic Marseille ! After its passage before the DNCG, the Marseille club was not subject to any sanction from the financial policeman of French football. The club’s payroll will no longer be regulated, and no restrictive measures have been taken.

According to RMC, it was club owner Frank McCourt who once again put his hand in his pocket to bring ” the necessary financial guarantees, which counted a lot in the lifting of the sanctions. » OM would also have promised to aim for economic balance for next season, via a transfer window “ambitious but without overbidding”.

Recruitment at a standstill

For the moment, the recruitment of the Phocaeans is at a standstill. President Pablo Longoria has given up on several leads, including Mohamed-Ali Cho and Axel Witsel, for financial questions. Now that the DNCG box has been crossed, OM could (finally) speed up their transfer window, in particular by finding a successor to Boubacar Kamara, even if the priority is also to part with certain undesirables with high salaries Strootman, Radonjic, Amavi , Alvaro…)

It should also be remembered that OM must pay this summer the purchase options of four players recruited last year (Pau Lopez, Mattéo Guendouzi, Cengiz Under and Arkadiusz Milik), which represents around 40 million euros. We can also add the arrival of defender Samuel Gigot (Spartak Moscow), who has been with Marseille for several months.
