While his final transfer to OM took a long time to materialize during the summer transfer window, Pol Lirola had also been approached by Atalanta Bergamo.
Au same title as Leonardo Balerdi , Pol Lirola was loaned with an option to buy at OM last season, and after very long negotiations between Pablo Longoria and Fiorentina , the Spanish right-back ended up being transferred for € 13m. However, in the midst of his summer transfer window, Lirola could have finally snubbed OM to join Atalanta Bergamo who were courting him. He lets loose his truths on this subject in the columns of La Provence.
“If the negotiations had not been able to be concluded with the OM …”
“A doubt when the Atalanta coveted me? Jorge was waiting for me, Pablo continued to negotiate with Fiorentina… The interest of Atalanta came to my ears, and although I would love to play the Champions League, I immediately told my agent that I only wanted to play for OM. If the negotiations had not been able to be concluded with Marseille, we would have studied the other offers, “said Pol Lirola .
