The agent of Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara has revealed that his client could leave for a sum below his true market value amid links with AC Milan.
Kamara played 43 games for Marseille last, covering the role of central midfield and also as a centre-back, and he appears to be gathering some interest from clubs abroad with the Rossoneri strongly linked.
Calciomercato.com reported earlier in the week that the Milan management want Kamara to strengthen the midfield as the African Cup of Nations will run from early January to early February, with Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer to represent the Ivory Coast and Algeria respectively. The Rossoneri have been on the player for at least a year and are now ‘trying to close’ as per the source.
Kamara’s representative Satin spoke to the microphones of Le Phocéen and was asked about the possible selling price of the player if he were to leave during the summer window, with his comments relayed by MilanLive.
“It is necessary to understand that there is a huge difference between the absolute value of a player and his value at time T, when he has only one year left on his contract. This is the case, for example, of Kylian Mbappé who today is worth only 118 million euros, while he is by far the most expensive player in the world in absolute value,” he said.
“In absolute value, we could put him [Kamara] between 30 and 35 million euros, in my opinion, even if this does not mean much because it is above all a question of supply and demand. With a contract expiring next year, if OM manages to get 20 or 25 million, it would be in my opinion a good deal for a non-international player in his situation.”
