Pedro Ruiz Delgado, that’s his name, is expected to join Marseille very soon. It is an idea of the Marseille president, Pablo Longoria.
Based on information from RMC, Pedro, 21, should make a free entry at OM for three seasons. The Spaniard should then be loaned for a year to the Netherlands, to the NEC Nijmegen club, to recover his health and then return to OM. Seriously injured in the cruciate ligaments, which prevented a transfer to Eintracht Frankfurt for 7 million euros, Pedro did not play all last season with the youngsters of Real Madrid. With this future signature, Pablo Longoria “Try a bet”, according to RMC, with a player that the Olympian president considers one of the best strikers of his generation (2000).
The Sevilla native has never played in Real’s first team in his entire career. Note that his probable arrival does not end the search for a central striker to compensate for the departure on loan from Dario Benedetto to Elche. OM should therefore still be active in the transfer market before it closes at the end of August.
