Lapadula offered to Marseille

Olympique Marseille turned down the chance to sign Genoa outcast Gianluca Lapadula, according to reports in France.

The centre-forward turns 29 next month and has made only one substitute appearance this season in Serie A, scoring in his only Coppa Italia showing.

Purchased from Milan in 2017 for €13m, he is no longer part of the Grifone’s plans, so RMC Sport and Telefoot claim his agent offered him to Marseille.

However, Rudi Garcia’s club were not interested and remain in negotiations for fellow Italian Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli heading back to Italy?

As talks with Olympique Marseille break down, it’s rumoured Mario Balotelli has been offered to Parma, Sampdoria, Bologna and Sassuolo.

The striker has been frozen out at Nice after a series of rows with Coach Patrick Vieira and is ready to terminate his contract six months early by mutual consent.

He already had a medical at Marseille over the summer before the two clubs failed to agree a transfer fee.

A reunion was widely expected, but now Rai Sport and Tuttosport suggest the situation has changed due to Marseille’s disastrous form.

Balotelli to Marseille in doubt?

Mario Balotelli’s transfer to Olympique Marseille could be put back into doubt, as Coach Rudi Garcia is on the verge of the sack.

Balo is expected to terminate his contract with Nice by mutual consent six months early, so he can be free to negotiate personal terms and move on as a free agent.

He had been all set for Marseille, but the situation is in flux after today’s shock 2-0 defeat to fourth division amateur side ASF Andrezieux-Boutheon.

Nice set Balotelli price-tag

Mario Balotelli is on the January transfer market and Nice want somewhere between €1.5-3m, with Olympique Marseille again favourites.

The striker had undergone a medical with Marseille over the summer, but when the two clubs failed to agree terms, he refused to attend pre-season training.

Balo eventually relented and joined his squad for the new season, but is yet to score a single goal and had a series of bust-ups with new Coach Patrick Vieira.

‘EDF didn’t believe in Strootman’

Kevin Strootman’s agent explains the midfielder moved to Marseille because “he no longer had the trust” of Roma Coach Eusebio Di Francesco.

The Dutchman was sold by the Giallorossi this summer, along with Radja Nainggolan and Alisson, prompting a backlash from fans.

“He he no longer had the trust of Di Francesco,” Kevin Lefranc told calciomercato.it.

“So we found a new project for him at Marseille. Kevin was very happy with the atmosphere and the conditions offered by the French club.”

The 2-1 result at the Stadio Olimpico means last season’s finalists have managed just one point from four games in this group.

“We played very well this evening and were up to the task,” insisted former Roma boss Garcia on Sky Sport Italia.

The 2-1 result mathematically secured their spot in the next phase, knocking out last season’s Finalists.
