While Bamba Dieng has reached an agreement with OM for a new contract, the 21-year-old forward is not going to extend his lease, mainly due to the financial problems encountered by the Marseille club.

Bamba Dieng is one of the nice surprises of this start to the season for Olympique de Marseille . The 21-year-old forward took advantage of Arkadiusz Milik's absence to get noticed with Jorge Sampaoli , who has not hesitated to use his player ten times in Ligue 1. Bamba Dieng has thus found the net three times, with a remarkable performance against AS Monaco on September 11, a meeting during which the Senegalese scored a double. An unexpected outbreak for a player playing in reserve last season after his arrival from Diambars , already arousing enthusiasm among supporters and some observers. “He reminds me of Mamad '(Mamadou Niang) in the style of play: very offensive, very fast, technically above average and scoring goals. He must progress in lucidity, calm and coolness in front of the goal. He has a lot of face-to-face with the goalkeepers, he scores a lot but he also misses some. But I have confidence in him and I put a coin on him this season, ”said Djibril Cissé in Téléfoot, while the former Senegalese striker El-Hadji Diouf did not hesitate to compare the great hope of OM to Didier Drogba in comments to So Foot: “All he can do is score goals. He is a young man with a future. All I have to say is keep his head on his shoulders, keep working. He's a striker who ends up in the box. “With his new status at OM , Bamba Dieng can now claim more playing time with the first team, but also to a new contract in line with his performance, prompting Pablo Longoria to take action.

A new contract, but no extension

These last weeks, the extension of Bamba Dieng has caused a lot of talk in the Marseille city, while the Senegalese is hired until June 2024. More than the duration of his lease, it is his salary that is currently the problem, since the attacker will receive € 4000 gross for this exercise, an amount revised upwards for the next two seasons in order to reach 5,000 and then 6,000 € by 2024. Present at a press conference this Friday, the number 12 of OM made a big announcement about his case by revealing that he had reached an agreement with Pablo Longoria , without providing further details: “We have discussions, we have found common ground, I should sign in the next few days, I am very happy (…) I hope to score more goals, help the team win, be at the top of the standings. It is essential. However, this common ground does not mean that Bamba Dieng will extend his contract with Olympique de Marseille .

Rendezvous at the end of the season for the future of Bamba Dieng

Indeed, RMC announces Bamba Dieng will remain engaged with the OM until June 2024, despite the agreement reached between the two parties which will only allow the Senegalese to obtain a salary increase. What to delight Bamba Dieng , who will however perceive less than his teammates in attack like Konrad of la Fuente or Luis Henrique . The reason is simple, the OM remains under the control of the DNCG and cannot afford to be too generous financially. A new point will be made at the end of the season to consider an extension and a new increase for Bamba Dieng , and this depending on the performance of the latter in this season 2021/22.
