Despite a contract still running until June 30, 2022, Morgan Sanson (26) is getting closer and closer to leaving Olympique de Marseille. In the small papers of the English club Aston Villa, the French midfielder should, except for a huge turnaround, leave La Canebière to join Birmingham in the coming days. Chain Telefoot is categorical on this Monday evening and announces that the negotiations are advancing very quickly between the leaders of the two clubs and that an agreement is close. As a reminder, the Olympians are waiting for nearly € 20 million to let slip their number 8 (2 goals and 3 assists in 11 Ligue 1 matches this season).
