Why did Bamba turn down Leeds United’s offer?

Leeds United’s owner said in an interview that he was ready to sign a contract with the club but was unable to do so, so the club’s manager, Igor Tudor, brought him to the Marseille team, where they scouted Bamba. Bamba agreed to the deal for $10 million as well, but changed his mind after receiving a better offer from another French Ligue 1 side, OGC Nice. He failed his physical at the French club, though, and was forced to play for Marseille.

Will Bamba play in the 2022 FIFA World Cup?
