“After years in Marseille, his contract was coming to an end and OM wanted to renew it. There were discussions with Pablo Longoria, the president, then interest from big clubs like AC Milan, Atalanta, Roma, Atlético de Madrid, Manchester City, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Lyon towards the end. [Current Tigres teammate] André-Pierre Gignac was a friend of his, they played together, they were very close and Gignac presented him with this opportunity. The club was well convinced by the player, they pushed hard at the end of April 2021. He made a life choice, he really liked the idea.”
