French newspaper L’Equipe have a feature in their Wednesday edition on the future of Boubacar Kamara. The 17 year old central defender is currently with French club Marseille and seen as a big part of their future.
Marseille have just gone through a change of ownership and things are looking brighter for the future, and they hope that’s a future including Kamara.
However, there’s interest from elsewhere, with clubs from the Premier League and Bundesliga keeping an eye on the player. Manchester City are Arsenal are said to be interested, but it’s Pep Guardiola’s club who have taken a step forward.
L’Equipe says Manchester City have spoken to the family of the player… via FaceTime. It may not be the most conventional of means, but given the number of young players the club are linked to these days, it would certainly be quicker for Manchester City.
Yet to make his debut for Marseille, Kamara has been offered what his club think is a reasonable contract, but the player’s advisors don’t believe it’s in-line with what other young French talents have been offered elsewhere.
Marseille are trying to find a deal which keeps the defender where he is and makes sure he doesn’t leave the club without even making his debut. The pressure from other clubs is growing and L’Equipe say there’s ‘huge sums’ being offered.
Maybe Manchester City could sign him up via FaceTime and send him a signing on fee via PayPal.
