Saudi Arabian FA remains in contact with Marcelo Bielsa

According to today’s edition of L’Équipe, Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa remains in contact with the Saudi Arabian FA, who still believe that they can convince the Argentinian to join them at the end of the season, rather than extending his contract with Marseille.

However, according to the newspaper, the demands that Bielsa has been making are seen as too high by the Saudi setup. 

Bielsa will meet with Labrune between now and the end of May to give him his final decision. He has notably told Marseille to find a way of keeping Lucas Ocampos, even if Marseille cannot activate the buy-out option attached to the loan deal if OM don’t finish in the Champions League places.
