Samassekou and Olympique de Marseilles, still rumors going on
Diadie celebrated his first goal of the season against Hartberg in the Austrian Bundesliga saturday the 24th of november.
He dedicated his goal to his younger academic brother in nomination for the 2018 KOPA CUP Amadou Haidara who suffers a knee injury and will be absent at least 4 months from the game.
As announced on August 20, Diadié Samassekou (22) has extended with Salzburg for an extra 3 years.
Courted this summer by Roma, Lyon and OM, the Malian midfielder now has a contract until 2021.
But he should still leave Austria during the next summer transfer window.
This summer, Olympique de Marseille was eagerly awaited by its supporters on the transfer market.
At the end of the transfer window, Rudi Garcia, Andoni Zubizarreta and Jacques-Henri Eyraud convinced AS Roma to release Kevin Strootman, who was replacing Zambo Anguissa.
But this track was slow to conclude and many names were associated with the last finalist of the Europa League.
Among them, two players that OM met four times last season.
The two men are the midfielder of Red Bull Salzburg that the Phoceans first met in C3 and then semifinals.

If it seems that the first was complicated, it could be that the second was a real possibility.
RMC’s guest, Samassékou explained that the transfer was not made because of the timing.
Therefore, could the Malian international still be a track of Zubizarreta and above all, is he interested in joining a team that has more trouble than last season?
Without question, he answered this question and we can hope to see him in Ligue 1.
“Am I still interested in OM? Of course, OM are a very big team in France and Europe, “said the Samassekou, adding with humor that he would have his place on Rudi Garcia’s team today.
It remains to be seen whether, after the recruitment of Kevin Strootman, Olympique Marseille will attempt the coup again Samassékou.
In which case, a new question will arise: what will be the price requested by the Austrians and who will be in the ranks …
On transfermarkt his estimate value is 18 millions Euros
