Rumour Mill: Marseille Moving For Moussa?

According to SkySports, Spurs want-away Moussa Sissoko may finally get his desired transfer back to Ligue 1 in the form of recent money-bags Marseille.

Marseille were the subject of a financial take-over in October 2016 and the new Chairman Frank McCourt promised to invest up to £200 million in the club. He told L’Equipe:

“We’re going to put our club back on the road to glory”.

In January, Marseille made the signing of then West Ham star Dimitri Payet for £25 million in McCourt’s ‘OM Champions Project’ to re-invest in the squad.

According to The Mirror, next on Marseille’s ‘to buy’ list is Tottenham’s £30 million flop, Moussa Sissoko, who last month also told L’Equipe he wanted to leave the North-London club.

Additionally, Sissoko was reportedly told to find regular first-team football by France manager Didier Deschamps, so a move to Marseille would be a no brainer for the 27 year old.

However, whether a deal can be struck between the clubs is yet to be seen, as The Mirror also reveals that Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy will look to recoup most of the £30 million spent on the midfielder last Summer.

How much do you think Levy should ask for Sissoko?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Please be true! Levy should try and get as much as possible but getting rid of him is more important. Spurs may make a loss, but such was the complicated agreement with Newcastle we really have no idea what he cost, or how much we have to pay if he moves on before 5 years. Get shot of him and give Toby a pay rise.
