Football – Mercato – OM
Under contract until June 30, 2024 with OM, Dimitri Payet would have caught the eye of the Monterrey Tigers. After having snatched André-Pierre Gignac and Florian Thauvin from Marseille, the Mexican club would like to achieve a new XXL coup by offering the services of the 35-year-old attacking midfielder. While Dimitri Payet is the star of OM today, a departure for the Monterrey Tigres would be a huge turning point for the McCourt project.
The Monterrey Tigers like to shop atOM. In recent years, the Mexican club has served several times in the Marseille workforce. And he has always recruited major players from the club. Indeed, during the summer of 2015, Andre Pierre Gignac (36 years old) got involved freely and free of charge in favor of the Monterrey Tigers at the end of his contract with theOM. Six years later, Florian Thauvin (29) imitated his eldest and also joined the Mexican club in the form of a €0 transfer. And this summer, it could be Dimitri Payet’s turn.

Thus, to give itself the means of its ambition and to be able to offer an XXL salary to Dimitri Payet, them Monterrey Tigers would be obliged to get rid of Florian Thauvin. But while the latter would not have really convinced since his signature, the Mexican management would be ready to push him towards the exit. However, side OMthe departure of Dimitri Payet could be a huge turning point.
The departure of Dimitri Payet, a huge turning point for the McCourt project?
When’OM let go Andre Pierre Gignac and Florian Thauvin at the Monterrey Tigers, the club could do without these two players, even if they were major players for the club. Today, the situation would not be the same at all, since Dimitri Payet is the star, the great leader, the best player and the captain of the Marseille club currently. Otherwise, Dimitri Payet, who would have cost around €30m upon his return, is the most expensive player in the history of theOM. Thus, his departure would represent a huge shift in the project McCourt, especially since he still has two years of contract to honor with theOM. It would therefore be surprising if Frank McCourt and Pablo Longoria agree to sell Dimitri Payet to Monterrey Tigers also prematurely. To be continued…
