Mercato Mercato: Veretout, the nice shot of OM! (official) – Soccer

Expected for several days, the transfer of Jordan Veretout to Olympique de Marseille was made official this Friday. The French midfielder has signed up for three years with Marseille. A transfer which should bring 15.5 million euros, bonus included, to AS Roma.

Veretout is a new OM player.

Olympique de Marseille holds the eighth rookie of its summer transfer window. After Samuel Gigot, Isaak Tour, Ruben Blanco, Chancel Mbemba, Luis Suarez, Jonathan Clauss and Nuno Tavares, the Marseille club got their hands on Jordan Veretout (29).

OM’s most expensive summer recruit

Pushed towards the exit by Jos Mourinho after three seasons with AS Rome, the French midfielder returns to his native country, five years after a freelance season in Saint-Etienne. A permanent comeback in a club which fights for the first places and which will compete in the Champions League. To secure the services of the French international (5 caps), who signed a three-year contract, i.e. until June 2025, the Olympian leaders paid 15.5 million euros, bonus included. By far the most expensive transfer since the opening of March for the vice-champion of France.

A very reliable player

Even if he no longer entered the plans of the manager of La Louve, Veretout to one of the trusted men of the Special One, who aligned him 50 times during the last exercise. Renowned for his reliability, since he completed only one of his eleven professional seasons under the 30-game mark (29 with Aston Villa in 2015-2016), the former Nantes player brought his quality of percussion and corn sense son. In five seasons in Italy between Fiorentina and Roma, the Blue scored 37 goals and delivered 20 assists in 205 games. The perfect companion for Matto Guendouzi?
