I hope one day I will come back. I loved playing here, I really liked the city, the club, the people. I plan to play here again. “

A five-year contract
According to information from RMC Sport, OM will spend 4.5 million euros to recruit the athletic Brazilian defender desired by Jorge Sampaoli. He is expected in the coming days on the Canebière to sign a five-year contract. According to the Brazilian press, the deal also includes bonuses. In financial straits, Santos quickly agreed to sell his player to the dismay of coach Fernando Diniz.
OM are therefore preparing to announce a new recruit after Gerson, Konrad de la Fuente, Cengiz Ünder, Mattéo Guendouzi and Leonardo Balerdi. Goalkeeper Pau Lopez will also soon join Marseille, very active in this transfer window to rebuild a changing team. Luan Peres briefly played in Europe during his brief stint at Club Brugge (2018-2019).
