Official: Cengiz Ünder joins Marseille on permanent deal from Roma

John Solano

Cengiz Ünder’s chapter at Roma has closed after four years.

The Turkish attacker has officially joined Marseille on an initial loan deal for €500,000, though, an obligation to buy has been included – making it, for all intents and purposes, a permanent transfer.

The Ligue 1 side will pay a total of €8.4 million to make the deal permanent, with Roma also being entitled to 20% of the fee from any future sale.

Ünder ends his time in the Italian capital having tallied 88 appearances in all competitions for the club. He amassed a total of seventeen goals and twelve assists with the Giallorossi, who he joined in the summer of 2017 from Başakşehir.

A frustrating player, the attacker experienced an up and down tenure with Roma. He was brilliant in his first season with the club, but saw a major dropoff in production in the subsequent two campaigns.

After a less than stellar loan spell this past season with Leicester City, the Giallorossi and new manager Jose Mourinho made it clear to Ünder that he was not in the club’s plans, making his departure inevitable.
