Amine Harit returns to Marseille –

It was just a goodbye. A few weeks after his return to Schalke 04, Amine Harit will again wear the colors of Olympique de Marseille this season. Always in the form of a loan. More

Harit, a full season that calls for others

On August 31, 2021, already at the very end of the summer transfer window, Amine Harit had been loaned to Olympique de Marseille. Despite an interesting career with Schalke 04, his club since 2017, the 25-year-old Moroccan international attacking midfielder had chosen to return to France. A paying choice for the former Nantes player who played in all and for all 34 matches under the orders of Jorge Sampaoli. Including a dozen in the European Cup alone. This summer, we take the same ones and start again. Indeed, OM have officially just been loaned, with option to buy, Harit by the Germans of Schalke.

OM obtains a loan with an option to buy

On June 30, Amine Harit, under contract until 2024 with Schalke 04, crossed the Rhine again to find the Bundesliga formation. Not necessarily to stay there very long. Thus, the English of Leicester seemed on the right track to obtain the signature of the native of Pontoise. OM had identified the Ukrainian Malinovskyi as a priority for the position of attacking midfielder. But his club Atalanta Bergamo demanded too much money.

In the end, the three parties did not take long to find an agreement, Harit having, for his part, given his priority to Marseille. From now on, he hopes to benefit from a maximum of playing time, despite the arrival of a new coach, in the person of Igor Tudor. With the prospect of competing in the Champions League again. A competition that the player trained at FC Nantes has already known with Schalke, during the 2018/2019 season. Fortunately for him, Amine Harit had not participated in the humiliation suffered in the round of 16 return on the lawn of Manchester City (7-0). In the meantime, it is OM who can rub their hands.
