OM will have many issues to manage this summer in the transfer market. Pablo Longoria hopes to convince William Saliba to continue the adventure in Canebière.
Next season OM will have the chance to compete in the Champions League. A competition that is still important to club fans, who hope OM gives itself the means to achieve their ambitions this summer during the transfer window to compete with the best teams in Europe. This will be the mission of Pablo Longoria. The president of Olympique de Marseille will not lack the files to manage. First of all, the Spaniard will have to manage the junk sales and do everything to convince William Saliba to continue in OM. The international defender, loaned out by Arsenal last season, is in complete oblivion. Jorge Sampaoli has made it one of his essential parts of his device and absolutely wants to keep it. But the prospect of returning to win at Arsenal is tempting. Torn, the Frenchman has made a big step forward in his thinking according to Athletics.
Saliba left to stay in OM?
William Saliba’s return was not reassuring yesterday, but Theo Hernandez’s positioning on the two Danish goals raises questions. He plays out of time in defense and covers the Danish striker twice. We think his position in defense is not natural. pic.twitter.com/Y1nF2tYbh6

The specialized media really shows that William Saliba is thinking more and more about the possibility of staying in OM next season despite Arsenal’s desire to repatriate him. The former Saint-Etienne appreciates the fact of being an undisputed keeper in Marseille and that a club relies so heavily on him. He also knows that this is what he needs to increase his chances of participating in the next World Cup in Qatar with the French team. In the Gunners, Saliba will not have the same guaranteed time as in the OM and will have to fight for a starting place. In addition to all this, Saliba really likes Marseille, a city in which she feels fulfilled. Good news for OM, who will now have to negotiate with Arsenal. Either a new loan or a dry transfer. The 21-year-old’s contract with Arsenal will expire in June 2024. The Londoners estimate their defender at 30 million euros. A very high price with which OM will not be able to match. Pablo Longoria still has work to do before holding William Saliba. He does know what to expect though: Bondy’s hometown is ready to stay in Canebière and fight the Marseille club next season, especially in the Champions League.
