Serie A official website confirmed in the early morning of October 6th, Beijing time, that Sassuolo loaned Marseille midfielder Maxim Lopez for one season. If the number of appearances reaches the target, he can exercise his buyout rights.
The 22-year-old French midfielder Maxim Lopez will join Sassuolo on loan this season. Although his contract with Marseille will expire in only one year, it is understood that Sassuolo still has a buyout clause. It can be activated as long as the player has played more than 25 times.
Lopez came from the Marseille youth training, he has been playing for the team so far, but the team was unable to meet his renewal requirements due to financial reasons. If Sassuolo chooses to activate the buyout clause, Marseille can get a small transfer fee, and Lopez will automatically sign a 4-year contract.
