Mauricio Isla won't stay at Olympique de Marseille

The famous French club won't be able to keep the Chilean player for economics reasons, and he will go back to Juventus where his future is uncertain.

Mauricio Isla, currently at Olympique De Marseille, will return to his parent club Juventus. The player's agent Fernando Felicevich has told media that "the player won't be signed outright by Marseille" he also said that "despite his good performances the club is in an economic position where they can't afford the redemption clause".

The 27-year-old Chilean will be in Turin at the end of this season and has played 21 games in the Ligue 1 scoring 2 goals and assisting to 1 goal.

An Italian future?

There has been recent rumors stating that Juventus wants to keep the  Colombian Juan Cuadrado. But if Conte is going to the bench of the "Blues" there is a high chance that the Italian coach could want him in the team. If that is the case, then Mauricio Isla could stay at Juventus to fill his position, as he has been in fine form with the French team.

Also, the Italian team could keep him so the other players could have rest throughout the season like  Alex Sandro, Stephan Lichsteiner, Patrice Evra, Kwadwo Asamoah  and Juan Cuadrado if he stays.

The French despair

Olympique de Marseille has not won a Ligue 1 title since the season 2009-2010, and haven't had a great performance in European Competition in recent years.

This has not been made any easier since PSG started to buy big name players. But it's unacceptable being in the 12th spot of the table with a club that has such history.
