William Saliba open to permanent stay at Marseille

La Provence report that 20-year-old French central defender William Saliba is open to remaining at Ligue 1 side Marseille past the end of his loan spell this summer.

He feels very good in the squad, under the orders of Jorge Sampaoli, but in order for him to consider a permanent move, his condition is that the club qualifies for the Champions’ League.

Whilst OM are in the driving seat in the league table to achieve this goal, there are still questions about the FIFA recruitment ban, and if OM’s appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport fails, then he would not be able to sign.
