The day after the end of the Ligue 1 season, Arkadiusz Milik published a message that clearly opens the door to a departure.
Olympique de Marseille took the time but did indeed find their “Great striker”. Landed in the last days of the winter transfer window, Arkadiusz Milik fully met the expectations placed on him, making us forget the clumsiness of Dario Benedetto or the downturn of Florian Thauvin. So much so that with his nine goals in Ligue 1, the Pole offered himself the luxury of being the most prolific Marseillais of the season. And this despite only 15 games played.
Thanks to these 9 goals in 15 appearances, the player loaned by Napoli also has the second best ratio in the championship behind the inevitable Kylian Mbappé. Unfortunately for OM, Arkadiusz Milik could only pass through the Marseille city. Because according to the transalpine press, if the Pole’s loan was accompanied by a compulsory purchase option set at eight million euros, a gentlemen’s agreement with the Marseille leaders would allow the native of Tichy to already leave Heaven and White for a qualified training in the Champions League.
“I have dreams, and I want to play in the best clubs in the world, that’s my goal”, he had also confided this winter, clearly opening the door to a departure this summer. Also his message published on Monday, the day after the last day of Ligue 1, takes on a necessarily different tone. What can be read as a simple end-of-season review does indeed also sound like a farewell message.
“As soon as I arrived here in January, I immediately understood how important this club and this jersey were. Qualifying for the Europa League was a good result, I always tried to give the maximum, 15 games (16 in fact), 10 goals. I thank my teammates, the clubs and especially the supporters who made me feel at home. Go Om “, he wrote, already using the past.
