Official: Steven Nzonzi joins Al Rayyan from Roma

After three years, Steven Nzonzi and Roma are parting ways once and for all.

The French midfielder has been officially announced as Al Rayyan’s newest signing, joining the club on a multi-year deal from the Giallorossi.

The 32 year-old leaves the Italian capital on a free transfer after costing Roma €27 million in the summer of 2018, when he joined from Sevilla.

He amassed only 39 total appearances for Roma, all of which came in the 2018/2019 season, before going out on loan with Galatasaray then Rennes.

His departure provides the Italian’s wage bill with significant relief due to his massive €5.1 million in gross wages per season.
