For several weeks now, rumors of a potential sale of OM have been rife. Although Marseille’s decision-makers have insisted that the club is not on the market, some journalists are claiming the opposite. This is the case of Romain Haering, who asserts that investors have approached Frank McCourt, and that the latter has not closed the door. But the American businessman is greedy.

The reality is that there have been approaches, but it hasn’t gone much further. There was no press release. It was banging on the door to ask for thedoesn’t want to sell at a loss. We can respect that too. McCourt has spent between 300 and 400 million euros since he took over. Between the purchase price and the money invested in the first mercatos and the debts to be paid. And that’s with his own money, so it’s understandable that he’d want to get his money back, added Haering, who doubted, however, that Saudi investors would have been really interested, as they wouldn’t have been scared off by McCourt’s asking price. And if there were multi-billionaire Saudis, 500 or 600 million wouldn’t stop them, he stressed. Approaches, enquiries, yes, and the answer was no. 1
