The big deal!
According to completely cross-referenced information, Costas Mitroglou is ready to leave Marseille and Marseille for Istanbul and Galata, with the proposal of the Turks to cause dizziness! Discussions between the 30-year-old striker and the Istanbul club have come to a close. The Turks have been besieging Marseille's ace for days, who is said to be saying "yes" and moving to the neighboring country by the end of the week.
Their contract provides for a fixed annual compensation of € 3,5 million, as well as - possible - bonuses for participating and achieving goals of € 500.000 per season. For example, we can say that his participation with Galata's jersey will earn him an extra 10.000 €. The two groups are discussing lending it for 1,5 time, until 2020 summer.
Today-tomorrow is expected to be the final appointment, so that if there is no obstacle or unexpected "last minute" the big deal is completed. After these developments, as it is easily understood, the scenarios that want the former "red and white" striker to return to Piraeus and Olympiakos, at least at this stage, are not correct.
A valuable tool!
Marseille are moving to integrate yet another Greek footballer. The reason for Leonardo Koutris, who has already made a proposal to Genoa for 5.000.000 euros, with French media insisting for a few 24 hours that Marseille will not remain a fiery interest to the player but will proposal to Olympiacos.
This will be for the loan of the 23-year-old left back until the end of the season, with the "Fokai" being willing to buy his option in the summer of 2019 that will allow them to dress him in blue and white with an amount of 9.000.000 euro.
The left back had long been on their radar for a long time (where he was "introduced" to many people and through his appearances in the Europa League), but now they appear to have returned to the forefront to make him a resident of Marseille soon.
However, despite the fact that the amount seems quite tempting, it is unlikely that the deal will go ahead, because Piraeus does not want to lose a valuable midfielder of the season as long as they believe in its value and cost it around 10.000.000 euros.email> firstname.lastname@example.org
