Barcelona confirmed on Tuesday that Konrad de la Fuente has left the Camp Nou and moved to Ligue 1 side Marseille.
The transfer has been rumored for a few days now but has finally been made official with the 19-year-old going for a fee of €3 million.
Here’s the official statement:
“FC Barcelona and Olympique de Marseille have reached an agreement for the transfer of Konrad de la Fuente for 3 million euros. Barça will retain a percentage of any future sale of the the player.”
It’s been reported that Konrad has signed a four-year deal with Marseille and Barca will receive 50% of any future transfer.
The youngster was on the fringes of the first team last season and made two appearances in the Champions League for Ronald Koeman’s side as well as featuring for Barca B.
However, Konrad’s chances of playing regularly next season looked slim after Barca brought in Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero and he’s now opted for a fresh challenge.
The youngster will take the No. 20 shirt at Marseille and will be hoping he can go on and make an impact under coach Jorge Sampaoli in the French top flight.
