The last straight line of the transfer window is racing and on the side of Olympique de Marseille this should be the case until the last hour. The latest case concerns Jonathan Clauss.
While OM supporters are focusing on the possible arrival of Terem Moffi, a pretext for a very high level epistolary contest on social networks with fans of OGC Nice, another operation could become a sensitive subject. It is not Matteo Guendouzi, still on the shelves of Aston Villa, but Jonathan Clauss who caught the eye of Atlético Madrid and not only for a few weeks. Last summer, before RC Lens accepted the offer fromOlympic Marseille, the name of Jonathan Clauss had been cited at the Colchoneros, without it being known whether this had materialized in a financial proposal sent to the northern club for the French international defender. But according to various sources, the club trained by Diego Simeone has returned to the charge in recent days with Pablo Longoria to find out if a deal could be found for Jonathan Clauss.
OM and Madrid discuss for Clauss?

Journalist for the Standard, Nizaar Kinsella explains that ” Atlético Madrid is in talks with Jonathan Clauss and OM to consider a loan with an option from this winter transfer window or a transfer next summer. As surprising as this information is, L’Equipe confirms that the Madrid leaders are indeed planning to send an offer to Olympique de Marseille in order to afford the French international. An improbable operation insofar as Jonathan Clauss never fails to recall all the pleasure he has of playing in the jersey of OM and it is hard to see him leaving after only six months spent in Marseille. However, it remains to be seen who has an interest in starting this rumor, while the former Lens player still has two and a half years of contract with the Marseille club.
