L’Equipe: Milan poised as Marseille star is unhappy with handling of contract talks

By Oliver Fisher -

Boubacar Kamara seems to have made his mind up to leave Marseille when his contract expires with AC Milan at the window, a report claims.

L’Equipe writes that after nine months without much movement, the Marseille management have decided to resume discussions for a possible extension of Kamara. The 22-year-old defensive midfielder received a new offers earlier this month, or rather three offers for him to pick from.

The Ligue 1 giants gave Kamara the choice of a short, medium or long-term extension, at the choice of the player, at different salaries. This offer has not yet been accepted though as the player is unhappy with how Marseille have handled the whole situation.

The report claims that Marseille tried to sell him to Newcastle and Wolverhampton in the summer when he had a year left on his deal, but he did not want to join either, and he believes his renewal was not really a priority for his club. Marseille have always claimed they have financial difficulties, but Kamara saw them sign Gerson for €20m and now no longer believes such an excuse.

The report adds how in Italy it is Milan that are particularly interested in signing the Frenchman, especially with a view to the now likely departure of Franck Kessié.
