At the end of the contract in 2024
At 28, the midfielder comes out of a great exercise at Lazio with 30 appearances (1 goal) for his first season, including 24 in Serie A and 4 in the Champions League, after five years in La Liga, on the side from Eibar. He had signed a four-year contract in Italy, which will therefore end in 2024. This sector of play has already been strengthened by the arrival of Gerson pending that of Guendouzi, who should arrive in Marseille on Monday.
While William Saliba could also engage in the coming days, Pablo Longoria continues to work to rebuild a good part of his workforce, after the end of contract or loan returns from Pelé, Nagtomo, Khaoui, Germain, Cuisance, Ntcham, Thauvin and Sakai as well as the loan of Strootman in Cagliari.
