Mandanda will discuss his future with OM

Having played three of OM’s last six matches in the league, Steve Mandanda managed to convince Jorge Sampaoli as the season progressed. But the 37-year-old goalkeeper, under contract until June 2024, will he accept competition with Pau Lopez next season? According to The Teamthe world champion would have planned to discuss this subject soon with the Olympian management.
  • Our opinion : A departure cannot be ruled out if Steve Mandanda is not certain to start next season. The former Le Havre indeed needs playing time to hope to be called up for the 2022 World Cup (November 21 to December 18).

Barca monitor Raphinha’s situation

FC Barcelona has been following Raphinha, the Leeds United winger who scored ten goals this season in the Premier League, for several months. According to Sport, the Catalan club would closely monitor the situation of the Peacocks, currently 18th in the English championship. While the Brazilian’s release clause would be 45 million euros, the former Rennais would benefit from a clause in his contract: in the event of relegation from Leeds United, it would increase to 25 million.
