Olympique Marseille are in a bit of a problem right now. After signing Kevin Strootman in the summer of 2018 for a deal worth 25 million euros, they are now looking at ways to offload the player as he has not impressed anyone at the south of France. They want to offload Strootman in the January transfer window, in order to reduce the club’s wage bill, according to Calciomercato.
This makes sense, as Strootman was paid a lot when he was signed from AS Roma 18 months ago and with him getting a five-year contract at the age of 28, that decision from this point of view seems quite unreasonable. The Netherlands international was rumoured to be earning around €500,000 a month which are now proving to be a burden.
The club would even consider a loan deal provided Strootman’s salary is paid in full, with Inter and Fiorentina among the clubs to be offered his services. However, such a huge salary could prove to be a real issue.
