Mercato: why OM are slow to extend their Boubacar Kamara nugget


The young Marseille hope, Boubacar Kamara, at the end of the contest next June, has still not extended to the despair of the supports

Great hope of OM that should be pampered or a player to be sold at all costs in order to make up for the deficits?

Deep down, Boubacar Kamara, the young Marseille midfielder (22 years since Wednesday) who is predicted to have a great international future, still does not know how he is viewed by his leaders.

His sporting situation is simple: Jorge Sampaoli, his coach, holds him in high esteem (12 L1 games played since the start of the season).

But behind the scenes, everything is more complicated.

Kamara will come to the end of his contract next June.

For several weeks, OM has been spreading the idea that the young player refuses all contract proposals while, each time, a clause stipulates that Kamara would be able to leave OM each summer if he wishes.

And OM appeals to its feeling of gratitude towards its training club at a time when it is not in great financial health: last week, the DNCG, the financial policeman of the clubs, has moreover maintained "the supervision of the wage bill and transfer allowances" decided last summer.

Confidence with its leaders "weakened"

But this version of a player wishing to leave the ship while his club, in arrears in his accounts, wants to build the future around him, is far from corresponding to reality.

For a player who matters, Kamara has not forgotten the last day of the summer transfer window when his club tried to force his hand to sign him to Newcastle or Wolverhampton.

While Kamara did not wish to sign there.

Kamara therefore stayed, but trust with her leaders came out of the episode weakened.

Since then, Pablo Longoria, who does not want to be reproached for having mismanaged the file by not making it a priority, has returned to the charge.

But the problem is that since the boxes are empty, OM have no room for maneuver in order to extend their players ...

A version that passes moderately when we know that last summer, Pablo Longoria chose to spend 20 million to sign the Brazilian Gerson or to accumulate paying loans (Ünder, Guendouzi, Pau Lopez, Saliba, Harit).

Clearly, if OM really wanted to extend Kamara, it was not necessary to empty the boxes with other players and then ask him to make a certain sacrifice and sign at a discount.
