Montpellier President Louis Nicollin has confirmed that Morgan Sanson’s move to Marseille “is on the right track,” and that a deal is close in an interview with Midi Libre.
“He is a good guy, clever and I cannot refuse him the possibility of going to a big club where he will likely triple his salary. Because Marseille is a big club. He will have a career like Deschamps did. Or Desailly. After two or three years, he will go abroad. Financially, we will find an agreement with Marseille. I want €15m, even if it is Laurent, my son, who is doing the deal, he will leave. It will allow us to sign four new players as well as the young lad from Laval (Mukiele) who has already arrived. It will be a defender, two midfielders and an attacker who will certainly be Ikoné.”
