Prohibition or not of recruitment: OM will know at the beginning of June
OM will be fixed at the beginning of June about whether or not they will be banned from recruiting during the summer transfer window. This follows the Pape Gueye case, in which the Marseille club was sanctioned by FIFA. First to a fine of 2.5 million euros, but also to a ban on recruitment. According to our information, OM already filed a request for a “suspensive summary” a few weeks ago which, as its name suggests, would have the effect of suspending, at least temporarily, this impossibility of signing new players.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will provide the Marseille club with an answer on June 9 at the latest, just before the opening of the transfer market, set for June 10. Nothing is recorded on this subject, and OM remain very cautious even if the Marseille leaders really hope to have the authorization to recruit this summer. As indicated this Thursday in the columns of La Provence, the merits of the case will not be judged until October, the date on which the investigation of the case will begin. The English club Watford (with whom Pape Gueye signed up in April 2020 before denouncing this contract and breaking it) notably requested a period of time to prepare its arguments. While OM were ready to plead their case this summer, the English club would not seem in too much of a hurry for this case to be judged. Watford is indeed likely to receive compensation for delay if it emerges “victorious” from this dispute.
