The agreement has been reached and the player has been convinced of a move, we are heading towards an official announcement of a deal that will see Marlon join Sassuolo. After reaching an agreement with his current club, Barcelona, Sassuolo also agreed to a contract with the player himself. The defender will now arrive in Italy tomorrow evening local time, and undergo his medical visits on Thursday morning.
The blitz by Carnevali in Spain was key to this signing, as Galatasaray, Schalke and Sevilla were also all interested in the player. He will arrive at Sassuolo on a permanent basis for a fee of 6 million euros, while Barcelona will hold a buy-back option as well as receive a percentage of any future sale. It is a signing of international importance for Sassuolo, as the player shined in the preseason this season during the ICC, where he faced Tottenham, Roma and Milan.
