Posted on January 11, 2022 at 3:30 p.m. by AC

Under contract until 2024, Alvaro Gonzalez could leave Olympique de Marseille in this winter transfer window and in particular return to his native country, Spain.

The defense of Olympique de Marseille could well see several players leave! The end of Boubacar Kamara 's contract seems to have sealed his future, while Pablo Longoria continues to work to find a club in Duje Caleta-Car . A new name has also surfaced quite recently, with Alvaro Gonzalez. The latter no longer seems to fit into the plans of Jorge Sampaoli and has suffered competition from Luan Peres and William Saliba, arrived last summer. The Spaniard has notably been linked to Spanish clubs, but also to Ligue 1 teams such as the Girondins de Bordeaux and ASSE . Barely arrived in Forez, Pascal Dupraz had also opened this file. “It is a track mentioned by the recruitment cell” he confided, at the microphone of France Bleu Saint-Étienne. “If OM are willing to take charge of their salaries and the player is willing to come to us, we welcome them! “. Gonzalez seems on his side focused on OM , having also denied information about his possible departure, via his Twitter account.

Alvaro Gonzalez's entourage is not against a departure

This Tuesday, La Provence addressed this thorny issue, explaining that Jorge Sampaoli would not necessarily want to see Alvaro Gonzalez leave Olympique de Marseille in the middle of the season. However, his entourage seems to be pushing for a departure … to another Ligue 1 club. According to Foot Mercato, it would be the Girondins de Bordeaux where a place seems to have become free with the sidelining of Laurent Koscielny. However, Provence for its part underlined the Spanish competition and in particular that of FC Valence , which would negotiate with OM a loan from Gonzalez.

No negotiations with Valencia, but …

According to information from MARCA this track would be very topical, but far from being advanced. Sources close to FC Valence would have indeed explained on a daily basis that a recent contact would have taken place with Olympique de Marseille , in order to express an interest for Alvaro Gonzalez. However, these sources deny the existence of any negotiations at this stage, although things could evolve soon. It must be said that Pablo Longoria seems to have taken care of other files, since Cédric Bakambu would be very close to landing at OM .
