Mercato – OM: The Italian press announces a €5M deal

Published on June 14, 2024 at 11:00 a.m.

This is certainly the biggest project for OM this summer: finding a coach. While Jean-Louis Gasset has already left for almost a month, the Phocéens have still not announced who his replacement will be. If the residents of the Vélodrome seemed to be going straight into the wall, with a series of failures, a new path has emerged in recent hours, since Roberto De Zerbi is announced in the south of France. And good news for the Phocaeans: an agreement has reportedly been reached.

For the moment, the summer seems just as hard as the season at OM. After concluding the 2023/2024 financial year in eighth place League 1not qualifying for a European competition, the residents of the Velodrome are certainly lacking arguments to attract a renowned coach to their bench. If Paulo Fonseca And Matías Almeyda visibly refused the Marseille proposal, the club of Pablo Longoria seemed to have fallen back on Sérgio Conceição. But against all expectations, it could be that it is Roberto DeZerbi who takes the reins of the southern team. Italian and OM would have even already agreed.

Agreement between De Zerbi and OM?

According to information from the Gazetta dello Sport, Roberto DeZerbi gave his approval to join OM, who would offer him a three-year contract. The last obstacle would be the amount claimed by Brighton to let it slip away: €5M according to the Italian media.

A big project for De Zerbi

If the semi-final of Europa League was the tree hiding the forest, OM gave his supporters a terrible season. Eighths of League 1 At the end of the season, the Phocaeans are expected to turn the corner from next August. It is in a context of tensions that Roberto DeZerbi could land in the Canebière. But there is no doubt that the 45-year-old coach is aware.
