Andy Mattioli

Yesterday, Roma made Pau Lopez’s loan to Marseille official. The loan comes with an initial fee of €720,000 and an obligation to buy for €12 million after reaching twenty appearances for the French side.

The Spanish shot-stopper after spending two seasons in the Italian capital and making 76 appearances for the club across all competitions decided to bid farewell to Roma and thank the fans for their support with a post on Instagram.

“Dear Romanisti, as you may know next season I will be playing for Olympique de Marseille. I spent two intense seasons at this magnificent club, where I had the privilege to defend Roma’s goal: the truth is it was an honor and a pleasure. I want to thank everyone for the love and support that I’ve received from my teammates, the club and the fans.”

The player concluded:

“Now I understand why this club is special. Thank you so much and good luck in this upcoming season.”
