Olympique de Marseille have their new striker. As we revealed to you, the Marseille club had shown an interest in the situation of Cédric Bakambu (30 years old), free from any contract since his departure from China and four seasons spent at Benjing Guoan (45 goals in 59 league matches and a top scorer title).

And to fill the start for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations of Bamba Dieng and the mixed season of Arkadiusz Milik, whose future is still uncertain, OM has therefore enlisted the former scorer of Sochaux and Villarreal. “Olympique de Marseille today announced the signing of Congolese international Cédric Bakambu. Free of any contract, the 30-year-old striker has signed up until June 30, 2024 with the Olympian club after the success of his medical examination “, specifies the press release from the Olympian club.

Cédric Bakambu wanted to return to Europe

As he had announced, the Congolese international told us he wanted to focus on the sporting challenge. “I traveled a lot, I made a good living, I gained a lot of experience. There, I am looking for a purely sporting project, here in Europe. I started in Ligue 1 with Sochaux, but it was a bit complicated because we were playing maintenance. (…) Now, if today I am brought back to Ligue 1, why not, we will see ”.

Cédric Bakambu, who had almost signed for Barcelona two years ago, is therefore finally back in Europe, and in France, for two and a half years with the current second in Ligue 1. Olympique Lyonnais and LOSC also had showed an interest, but his exchange with the Marseille technician, Jorge Sampaoli, convinced him to join the Marseille team.
