Will we see William Saliba again with the OM jersey? The question deserves to be asked because the central defender is suspended for the last day of Ligue 1 during which, Marseille receives Strasbourg in a duel between European suitors. This meeting will result in many decisions for the Marseille transfer window, in particular since a guaranteed place in the Champions League or in the preliminary round does not guarantee the same financial windfall, nor the same calendar.
Nor even a qualification in the Europa League because depending on its match on Saturday evening, combined with the result of Stade Rennais at LOSC, OM can also finish in C3 next year. In this ultimate scenario, it will obviously be more complicated to convince certain players to join the project, such as William Saliba for example. Remember, the new French international is only on loan from Arsenal and without a purchase option. The Gunners could legitimately want to repatriate him given his performance.
Saliba wants to stay
“My wish is to finish well, to leave on a good note in case I don’t come back. But I try not to think too much about my future, otherwise I’m less focused on the games. It would be my pleasure to come back here, no matter what. It’s Marseille, it’s my club. (…) The Champions League with OM? When you see the atmosphere in the Conference League or in Ligue 1, I can’t even imagine what it would be like on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening.explained the 21-year-old on May 5.
His season being over this time (with his club since he was recalled by Didier Deschamps), he would have communicated his desire to stay in Marseille to the management of the club, according to information from RMC Sports. A desire shared by Jorge Sampaoli, who demanded during a meeting that the Saliba file be a priority. From now on, it’s another game that is being played with Arsenal and the game will be tight. Under contract until 2024 in London, the player is also courted elsewhere.
