Towards a return to France of Alassane Pléa?

Towards a return in Ligue 1 for Alassane Pléa? The French striker from Borussia M’Gladbach could indeed find the lawns of the French Championship. According to the newspaper The Team, OM and OGC Nice would be interested in the 29-year-old. Lucien Favre, the new eaglet coach, would like to repatriate the striker he knows well since he played under his orders from 2016 to 2018, already in Nice. Olympique de Marseille, very active in the transfer window, will have to part with an attacker if they wish to attract the French international (1 selection).

OM and OGC Nice, candidates for Pléa’s return to Ligue 1

Trained at OL, Alassane Pléa left Les Gones in the summer of 2014, after only 12 matches with the first team, to join OGC Nice. It had cost only 500,000 euros to the Riviera club, which sold it four years later to the German formation, for 23 million euros. At the end of the contract next year, the interested party declined offers from Borussia Mönchengladbach, who wanted to extend it. The former Nice is valued around 15 million euros by Transfermarkt, but half less for the Football Observatory. According to the sports daily, “Gladbach” would be inclined to sell him 8 million euros.

An accessible salary for both clubs

By signing in Germany, Pléa saw his salary naturally inflate. He would receive this season, nearly 4.5 million euros gross, excluding variables, according to Picture. It is the equivalent of a top 5 player in the Marseille locker room and in Nice, more than any other player, and that, without thinking of a possible salary increase, what is the native of Lille. OM, finally, has the sporting advantage of competing in the Champions League, which neither the OGCN nor their current club offer.
