Goalkeeper loaned to AS Roma, Pau Lopez starts this Friday evening for the meeting in Bordeaux.
The Spaniard won ahead of Steve Mandanda in the hierarchy of goalkeepers in the eyes of Jorge Sampaoli, and he therefore continues the matches apart from a few appearances of his French competitor. This Friday is his 20th appearance on the lawn with the OM jersey on his shoulders in an official match, and the figure is not insignificant. Indeed, AS Roma slipped a compulsory purchase option from the 20 matches played by Pau Lopez. Result, OM will have to pay the 12 million euros for his final transfer, with the long-term contract that goes with it for the Spaniard.
In addition to this, the Olympian club has therefore made a paying loan of 720,000 euros, and bonuses of up to 500,000 euros, especially in the event of qualification for the next Champions League. Rather good news for OM, who are satisfied with the performance of Pau Lopez, even if it caused the painful benching of Steve Mandanda.
