Why My Marseille Move Fell Through, Plans For Eagles Return

Super Eagles’ fringe combative midfielder, Mikel Agu, has finally opened up on why his widely reported move to French giants Olympique Marseille did not materialise before the close of the summer transfer window, reports.

In this exclusive interview with CSN, the 25 year old who is second stint as a loanee at Vitoria de Setubal, also reveals his ties with parent club FC Porto and the reason for his estranged relationship with the manager Sergio Conceicao.

“There was contact from Marseille. My manager was approached and FC Porto were also interested, but I was not cool with the terms. Marseille wanted me on loan with an option to make the move permanent but I was tired of another loan move after spending the last three years on loan. It was close to transfer deadline day and so the deal fell through,” Agu said explained.

With the Marseille deal off the table, Agu chose to spend the season at Vitoria Setubal rather than stay at Porto because of his less than cordial relationship with the manager.

“I love Porto and what the club has done for me, but I don’t want to go back there for as long as Conceicao is still in charge.
