Zapping Goal! soccer club Instant Mercato: Lukaku proposed to PSG, Moses Simon in the small papers of OM
After a medical visit that went badly on Thursday evening, the day the transfer window closed, OGC Nice gave Bamba Dieng a second chance yesterday Friday. A new battery of examinations was carried out and negotiations between the Aiglons and OM resumed. Except they didn’t work. Marseille President Pablo Longoria explained later in the day that his Nice counterpart had wanted to reconsider the agreement negotiated the day before, without giving figures.
But in its edition of the day, L’Equipe explains what really happened. On Thursday, OGC Nice had agreed to pay €9 million plus €3 million in bonuses that could be quickly reached. But given the doubts generated by the physical condition of the Senegalese, the Gym finally offered a loan with an option to buy OM, then a transfer with a weaker fixed base. Unacceptable for OM, who did not want to go back on the previously negotiated agreement. Dieng’s agents then wanted to fix things by reducing the initial duration of the contract (five years) as well as his contract. Without success. Bamba Dieng will therefore spend the 2022-23 season at OM!

Despite another attempt yesterday Friday, OM striker Bamba Dieng will not be transferred to OGC Nice, in particular because the Riviera leaders wanted to change the transfer fee. Their proposals to the Phocaeans have been unveiled.
