OM recently announced the arrival of Chancel Mbemba in its squad. The Congolese arrives free from FC Porto.
Pablo Longoria has a lot of pressure on his shoulders at the start of the transfer window. Fans are frustrated with Jorge Sampaoli’s recent departure. Because since then, the attitude of OM worries. Transfer market which took a long time to start, lack of European ambitions, difficult to know what Marseille’s strategy really is. Still, some moves have already been made, such as the surprise transfer of Luis Suarez, the advance with Jonathan Clauss and the arrivals of Samuel Gigot, Isaak Touré and Chancel Mbemba. The last city landed a few hours ago in Marseille. Free after an experience at FC Porto, the player has so far been more talked about for doubts about his age than for anything else. Still, Mbemba has proven himself in Portugal and is capable of being very solid in central defence. If he knows that he will not be given any gifts in Marseille, the Congolese is eager to take his first steps at OM.

In comments reported by The PhocaeanMbemba did not fail to congratulate himself on his arrival, while projecting himself into the boiling climate of the Stade Vélodrome. “I am very happy to be here. I’m going to meet all my teammates, the staff, the coach, and I’m in a hurry to train with everyone to be in good shape. I want to do my best to satisfy all the fans, and I can’t wait to see how hot they are. That’s what I prefer.” in particular indicated the former player of FC Porto. Next season, the 27-year-old Congolese will have a lot of competition, with players like Samuel Gigot, Isaak Touré, Luan Peres, Leonardo Balerdi or Duje Caleta-Car if the latter were to stay at the club. But Pablo Longoria wants a quick sale of the Croatian, estimated at nearly 15 million euros, otherwise the management of OM is ready to play him in the CFA.
