The signing of Pape Gueye by Marseille, under suspicion

Watford filed an appeal to FIFA and the highest European football body has already started the relevant proceedings to investigate the signing.


In April 2020, Watford announced the addition of Pape Gueye. The Le Havre midfielder was leaving Ligue 2 to sign free for the Hornets, but eventually ended up at Marseille in the summer. The fact of having undergone a medical examination in 2019 in Udinese with a valid contract deprived him of reaching the English team and breaking the relationship with his former agents.

According to information from RMC Sport, FIFA today opened an investigation and started preliminary proceedings to try to clarify whether Gueye's signing by Olympique de Marseille was illegal. Watford filed an appeal claiming that it already had a signed agreement with the midfielder and that is why the highest body in world football has opened a procedure.

FIFA has already warned OM that it will have to present allegations if the irregularity of the transfer is finally confirmed. The French team claimed at the time that the signing of the midfielder was not legal as he had suffered abuse from his former agent, Bakari Sanogo. A soap opera that could be flattered for months and that could even end with Gueye terminating his contract with his current team
