José Mourinho, the coach of Roma, wants to take a frame from Olympique de Marseille to strengthen his environment. A hard blow to come for OM.
OM Mercato: Boubacar Kamara on the start
The very versatile Boubacar Kamara arrives 6 months from the end of his contract, an extension with Marseilles is not on the agenda. The trend is therefore to start for the number 6 Marseillais. The 22-year-old capable of playing a central, full-back and midfield defender since the Villas Boas era. The arrival of Jorge Sampaoli at the head of Olympique de Marseille will not have changed anything. President Pablo Longoria tried to convince him and change his mind to no avail.
It must be said that there is no shortage of courtiers for the player trained in Marseille. There is talk of an interest from Arsenal and Manchester United, the latest concerns AS Roma, coached by José Mourinho. The Portuguese technician ticked the name of Kamara to continue strengthening his midfielder. During this transfer window, Roma recorded the arrival of Sergio Oliveira and Maitland-Niles in midfield. The Romans are probably not satisfied with their wish to wrest Kamara from Marseille. According to Ekrem Konur, the OM player is a direct request from José Mourinho.
Contact in progress between Roma and Marseille
The two clubs are still in view of a transfer during the winter transfer window. The arrival of Boubacar Kamara is also allied to the situation of Diawara, the midfielder of Roma is on the start. Mourinho wants to change his squad and shape it in his image, players are priced to find a new club, and in another time, to replace them with younger players chosen by Mourinho.
Diawara is not a choice of Mourinho, he wants to replace it with the Phocean 22-year-old Boubacar Kamara. The midfielder is open to a departure this winter, he wants his training club to be a financial compensation for his transfer. Kamara will therefore discover a new challenge and a new championship with the ambition of winning titles and boosting his career.
