Balerdi, Atalanta’s favourite, OM thinks about renewal: the point on the negotiation

Leonardo Balerdi is at the top of the list of preferences of theAtalanta, who continues to think about the Argentine defender with an Italian passport to strengthen their defense. The point, however, is that, according to what was reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Goddess has not yet presented an offer to Marseille, who are waiting for Roberto De Zerbi to become official as coach to carry out any type of operation, whether incoming or outgoing. These are therefore delicate days.

The Italian coach likes Balerdi a lot, which is why OM is even thinking of offering the player a one-year contract renewal, moving the deadline from 2026 to 2027. There hasn’t yet been a decisive attack from the Bergamo players , who are well aware of the requests of the French: the transalpine club would like 20 million euros, but without an extension they could be satisfied with 14-16. Meanwhile, Le Havre’s Arouna Sangante continues to be monitored.

Meanwhile yesterday Stephen Pagliucaco-owner of Atalanta and Boston Celtic, the NBA franchise, commented to Sky Sport on the season after the victory of the Americans: “It was an extraordinary year, only a few weeks have passed since Atalanta’s victory in the Europa League and now we’ve also won here in Boston: I couldn’t ask for anything better.”
