There has been a lot of speculation surrounding Celtic midfielder, Olivier Ntcham since the season came to an end.
The former Manchester City player and treble treble winner didn’t have the best season in the Hoops last term – due to injury and losing form.
However, it appears like he’s still in demand from several clubs with the main speculation being Marseille were keen to bring the Frenchman in this summer. Porto had a £14m bid rejected for the player last year, a move which helped Ntcham secure a bigger deal with Celtic in September.
Olivier is away with France under 21s right now at the Euros but he has confirmed leaving Celtic is a possibility before this window is all said and done but if he does leave it’s not likely to be to Marseille.
French Football News reports the French club have signed an agreement with UEFA under Financial Fair Play to raise €50million in transfer fees in order not to be given a transfer ban or penalties for breaching rules.
This means the club needs to sell some of their top players and won’t be in a position to pay any big money for Ntcham upwards of £10m while this is going on.
Marseille signed an agreement 10 days ago with UEFA relating to their FFP problems; accounts reveal they may have to achieve €50m in player sales by the end of the month, according to L'Équipe https://t.co/SAUve0tOuG
