FC Barcelona winger Konrad de la Fuente has officially left the club to join Marseille in France. The player has been signed for a fee worth €3 million, and Barcelona have also included a sell-on clause which entitles them to any future fee that Marseille receive for their now former player.
Konrad has been given the number 20 shirt and will continue his career in France after spending his early years as a professional footballer with the Spanish giants. He joined the club as a teenager in 2013 and has worked his way up to the second team.
The player occasionally played for the first team under Ronald Koeman this past season but played the majority of his football with the B-team. He registered 6 goals and 4 assists with the U-23 team in 21 appearances for them and also played for the first team in the Champions League.
He earned his USMNT debut in November of 2020 and only has one cap to his name so far. Considering the talent he has and the abundance of options in wide positions that Barcelona have, the move is a good one for the player, who is highly rated by fans.
Konrad becomes the third player to leave the club this summer, following Jean-Clair Todibo and Junior Firpo out the exit door, the former leaving for fellow Ligue 1 club Nice while Firpo is expected to join Leeds United in the Premier League.
