Sanson wants to leave Aston Villa

But where is Morgan Sanson? Since leaving Aston Villa in January 2021, the midfielder has been through a real mess. After a difficult first 18 months, the 28-year-old decided to leave last summer, but an administrative delay derailed his loan move to Espanyol Barcelona.

A few months later, and despite the arrival of Unai Emery on the bench in October, nothing has changed for Sanson. With only one minute to play this season, the former Marseille player is still not part of the Birmingham club’s plans. A departure this winter is therefore more topical than ever. And, according to information from Foot Mercato, the player told his direction that he wanted to leave to return to France.

Sanson dreams of OM, several L1 clubs in the ranks

With a view to a return to Ligue 1, the former Le Mans and Montpellier player has a dream that he shared with several of his relatives: to return to Olympique de Marseille, where he played between 2017 and 2021. Problem, OM is not interested in the return of the native of Saint-Doulchard for the moment. The reunion with the atmosphere of the Stade Vlodrome will obviously have to wait. With the Marseille jersey on the back at least.

Indeed, several Ligue 1 teams are still ready to relaunch Sanson. Two French clubs have already attempted a concrete approach: Strasbourg and Auxerre. However, the former Olympian politely refused the offer of 19th and 18th in Ligue 1. But Montpellier and Nantes, whose interest was already mentioned last March, are mentioned as possible destinations. Will Le Villan be more seduced by these two projects in the event of a concrete approach? Case to follow…
