To a point, to a degree. This summer, Olympique de Marseille had two priorities, reducing fat while building a competitive team to play in the Champions League. A mission cut short for Pablo Longoria, who often has great ideas. Last year, for example, OM club president, who excels in the transfer window, took out a loan from Moroccan Amine Harit. A player who started slowly in Marseille before bringing his qualities to Jorge Sampaoli’s team.
As a result, he ended the 2021-22 financial year with 5 goals and 4 assists in 34 games in all competitions, including 18 starts. It is an honor for the former FC Nantes, who came to re-start in France because he was in a complicated situation at Schalke 04. Only on loan, he had to return to Germany once the season was over. But the Lion of the Atlas secretly hoped to return to Marseille.
Amin Harit returns home
But the leaders of Marseille had other priority files to be completed. However, contact with Harit, who made a good impression on OM, was not cut off. And at the end of the transfer period, Pablo Longoria decided to speed up this file. The Marseille president has exchanged Schalke 04, ready to part with the player lured by Porto and Galatasaray this summer. Longoria managed to find a loan agreement with a Moroccan purchase option.
But this time, this option will be mandatory. OM just made the good news official. Olympique de Marseille announces today the signing of Amine Harit. The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has returned to Marseille on loan with an option to buy after a successful medical examination. He is the 12th Olympic conscript in the 2022 summer transfer window.. Thus the love story between the residents of Orange Velodrome and Amin Harit can continue.
