On loan from AS Rome, Pau Lopez is very close to becoming Marseille permanently.
L’Olympic Marseille should very soon sign a signature at 15 million euros. Arrived on loan from Ciel et Blanc this summer, Pau lopez will indeed see its purchase option be exercised automatically. This must indeed be exercised at 20e match played by the Spanish goalkeeper.
If he started on the bench, the former Romain was quickly installed as number one goalkeeper by Jorge Sampaoli and has already played 19 games in all competitions with OM, with 14 games in Ligue 1 and five in the Europa League.
If Steve Mandanda should be in the goals for the Coupe de France match against Chauvigny, Pau Lopez should regain his place in Bordeaux in the 20e Ligue 1 day, January 7.
