Pointed out by the National Management Control Department last May, Olympique de Marseille will finally have a few extra days to finish convincing the financial policeman of French football.
Last season, the DNCG issued a framework for OM’s payroll. Which had played some very nasty tricks on Pablo Longoria on the transfer window, and especially in the Amine Harit case. While the same sanction could have affected the Marseillais for next summer, this will probably not be the case. Since according to information from RMC Sport, “optimism is in order” knowing that “the Olympian record is stronger than a year ago”Frank McCourt having already provided convincing financial guarantees to the financial policeman of the L1.
Final response from the DNCG before June 14

Except that Marseille has not yet won, because if the final decision should have fallen this Thursday, it will finally intervene by June 14, the date on which the commission will meet to decide on the fate of other French championship clubs. In “respite” since May 31, when the DNCG carried out a review of the financial situation of the Marseille club between the two seasons, the leaders of OM have granted themselves additional time to provide “accounting documents” in order to avoid binding measures. An agreement reached with the bosses of the DNCG during the long discussions this week.
A very turbulent summer transfer window

While the summer transfer window will open its doors this Friday, the likely good news for next week will therefore allow Pablo Longoria to launch hostilities on the transfer market. Qualified for the Champions League with the ambition of getting out of the pools, OM will have to strengthen during the off-season. It remains to be seen what the room for maneuver will be for Longoria, who will still have to make some nice moves to satisfy Jorge Sampaoli. A real necessity, especially since OM remain under the threat of a recruitment ban for 2023 because of the Pape Gueye affair. Suffice to say that next summer, Marseille will play a large part of its short and medium term project. And with the probable green light from the DNCG, OM will therefore be able to line up the millions of euros to build a team capable of making the Vélodrome vibrate.
