Olympique de Marseille: A first official transfer

The Olympique de Marseille transfer window officially begins with the final transfer of Vitinha to Genoa.

This is not a big announcement for Olympique de Marseille supporters. But while waiting for confirmation of the arrival of Roberto De Zerbi, or the official signing of one or two recruits, such as Lilian Brassier, the Olympians have finalized the sale of Vitinha.

The Portuguese striker, loaned last January to Genoa, will continue his adventure on the Ligurian coast. The Italian club has a definitive transfer with OM, but the information is not communicated. The figures circulate and transfer 16 million euros, with significant bonuses (between 2 and 6 million euros). Fabrizio Romano also created a hundred which won the favor of the Phocaeans.

Vitinha, 30 million, and 6 goals with OM

For Olympique de Marseille, it is a way of limiting cash with a player who has not met expectations. Recruited in January 2023 for a summer record (more than 30 million Euros), the former Braga player will have scored only 6 goals in 43 matches in all competitions under the colors of OM.

During his loan to Genoa, Vitinha only played 9 matches in Serie A, scoring 2 goals. That the 24-year-old Portuguese striker showed enough to convince Italian drivers to put on him.
