It’s official ! Mentioned for several weeks, the departure of Konrad de la Fuente (21) is now effective. Under contract until June 2025 with Olympique de Marseille, the American international (3 caps) is flying to Greece. With a good rating in Europe and widely coveted during this summer transfer window – Real Valladolid, Sassuolo, Sampdoria, Anderlecht and Burnley have shown interest in recent weeks – the Phocaeans winger finally joins Olympiakos in the form of a loan.

โ€œOur American winger, Konrad de la Fuente, is on loan at Olympiakos. Olympique de Marseille and Greek club Olympiakos have reached an agreement for the loan of American winger Konrad de la Fuente., specifies, in this sense, the short press release from the Olympian club to formalize the news. Yesterday, it was the departure in the form of a loan from Pol Lirola to Elche in Spain which was formalized. The downsizing of the workforce is taking shape little by little, even if there are still a few issues to settle by the end of the transfer window.

Konrad de la Fuente flies to Greece!

Disappointing for his first exercise at OM, the one who never really entered into Jorge Sampaoli’s plans last season did not have the favors of his new coach Igor Tudor either, who prefers pistons to wingers in his system. Author of 16 small appearances in Ligue 1, including 9 as a starter, the player trained at La Masia will therefore discover a new championship, at a time when his career is just beginning. In Piraeus, the native of Miami will also find a certain number of players, well known from Ligue 1.

In addition to Mathieu Valbuena, also passed by OM, Konrad de la Fuente will thus rub shoulders with the ex-Rennais and Stรฉphanois Yann M’Vila or Kenny Lala, former player of RC Strasbourg. Determined to afford the American, who had cost around 3 million euros to the Phocaeans, Olympiakos therefore gets their hands on a promising young talent who only asks for playing time. What’s more, a few months from the World Cup 2022 where the USA will cross swords with England, Iran and Wales in Group B.
