Alexis Sánchez awaits official news about his future although, surely, he is clear that his departure from Inter Milan is practically a fact as his current team seeks to alleviate the economic burden of his squad in order to incorporate Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku.

That is why the Chilean striker is evaluating options and one of the most commented by the media is to go to Olympique de Marseille, with Jorge Sampaoli who knows him very well from the stage in which both were together in the Red, but it is something that is not 100 percent sure.

In fact, one last piece of information could mean that this move would be complicated because, according to Diario Sport, the Argentine coach would be looking to fish among the discards that Barcelona has planned to alleviate his salary burden and would go for the incorporation of Martin Braithwaite.

The Danish attacker has two more years of contract with the Catalans but they would let him go with a release letter after the coach Xavi Hernández informed him that he will have him and although the footballer believes that he can reverse the situation, everything indicates that there will be no way that your opinion changes.

Another of the signings that Sampaoli wants to rescue from Barcelona is Clement Lenglet, who has gone from more to less in his journey through the club, in addition to the fact that the Argentine strategist has highly valued the Frenchman from his time in Seville. All this with a view to the participation of Olympique de Marseille in the Champions League.
