Sailing Shipp?

Recently, a rumor has been floated on both sides of the Atlantic that Marseille have now come out more than once to scout Chicago Fire attacker Harrison Shipp. I cannot confirm or reject this claim at this time, but I can tell you that L'OM have yet to make any sort of official approach over the player.

Where did you see that offered in comments?

Matt said...

Waaaay too soon for transfer rumors for this guy. He needs another year to bake. (But, damn, he looked good last week.)

Wait, if this is an April Fools' joke, that means that they have made a formal offer for Shipp, right?

Greg Seltzer said...

No AF joke contained within.

Any truth to the rumor that Marseille was at the Fire-Union game scouting Shipp?

the rumor is older than the "mls transfers" twitter page, and it started in france.

@ Jon:

Riiiight, but that is not that the info I provided.

@brian

So someone asked about the rumors in this blog, Greg looked further into it, reported back, and then you reply "where do you get your info? comments section from your blog?" Seriously? I don't recall any mention of formal approaches, or lack-there-of in the comments before.

Just noting that was what he was referring to. Love the site!

greg just says theres not, so theres not? what is gregs source? or is that something he needs to 'protect' and not say, once again...

Not really sure what you are missing here.

There were reports he was scouted. I then stated that I could not personally vouch for or flag down those reports, but could at the time confirm that Marseille have not made any official approach for the player.

And in fact, yes, I cannot reveal who gave me this info, per their request. It is not exactly a rare request on these particular matters.
