Issa Kabore has decided to stay at Marseille, not return to Manchester City

It was significant, but not by much. Issa Kabore in Troyes action (Alamy / Independent Photo Agency) Before my transfer, we talked briefly with Charles (Kaboré). “The plan is to play and stay in Marseille.” However, during his presentation to the French giants, the player confirmed that such assumptions are incorrect. Furthermore, the England international is showing signs of becoming far more prone to injury than he was at the start of his Sky Blues career. “OM are a great club that are going to bring a lot to me,” Issa Kabore continued.” Issa Kabore was arguably at the top of the list of Manchester City youngsters who made a name for themselves on loan last season. During his loan spell at ESTAC Troyes during the 2021/22 season, the 21-year-old started 26 games for the City Football Group-owned club. The highly rated right-back made an immediate impact in French football, solidifying his reputation as one of the most in-form young players in a division brimming with potential superstars. Keeping this in mind, many speculated that the youngster would be motivated to return to his parent club one day, knowing that he has a chance of becoming a regular first-team member. Some even claimed that Issa Kabore was one of the best right-backs in Ligue 1 last season, demonstrating how well he adapted to senior football. As a result, the Burkinabe international has earned a move to Olympique Marseille this season, with an option to buy in for €20 million if he performs well. As a result, it is reasonable to assume that Pep Guardiola’s team views Issa Kabore as a possible successor to Kyle Walker, who turned 32 this year. Interestingly, the Premier League champions have included a buy-back option for the talented defender, which also applies to Gavin Bazunu, Romeo Lavia, Juan Larios, and Samuel Edozie. It’s the same whether you’re on the left or the right. “It was a dream come true for me to be here, and I’m ready to give it my all. “I have the ability to play on both sides.” Issa Kabore, defender for Manchester City Finally, the player’s admission may come as a surprise to Manchester City, who clearly saw his potential because they included a buy-back clause. City, on the other hand, are expected to be upbeat about Issa Kabore’s decision and to have a succession plan in place for the aging Kyle Walker.
