In a climate of tension between the players and Igor Tudor, OM will still welcome good news with the signing of Alexis Sanchez.
The big offensive blow of Olympique de Marseille is confirmed in the transfer window. According to information from the Gazzetta dello Sport, all lights are green for the signing of Alexis Sanchez in Provence. Indeed, in its edition of the day, the newspaper with pink pages reveals that the Chilean international will sign a two-year contract in favor of the Marseille club. La Gazzetta no longer uses the conditional and says that everything is settled for the signing of Alexis Sanchez at Olympique de Marseille, with a salary of 3 million euros per year at the key, twice less than what the former star of FC Barcelona touched at Inter Milan. In addition, Alexis Sanchez’s agent is expected in Milan on Tuesday to sign the breach of contract with the Nerazzurri, with whom the Chilean was linked until 2023.

The signing of Alexis Sanchez at OM is no longer in doubt since the Republic also confirms the agreement in principle between the 33-year-old Chilean international and the reigning vice-champion of France. Motivated by the idea of playing in the Champions League for which he will be an indisputable starter, Alexis Sanchez quickly agreed to join OM, even before knowing the financial sacrifices he was going to have to make. In addition, the Phocaean indicates that discussions are progressing very well between the entourage of Alexis Sanchez and the Marseille club. Important clarification from the pro-OM media: the Chilean was initially a track of Jorge Sampaoli, who has since resigned. But the new coach Igor Tudor, aware of the exceptional qualities of the player, validated his arrival. Before formalizing the clinical signing of Alexis Sanchez, OM would also like to get rid of the salary of an offensive player in attack in order to free up the payroll and avoid traffic jams.
