Marseille, July 11, 2021 (AFP) - Marseille on Sunday said they had agreed a season loan deal, with option to buy, with Roma for the Italians' Spanish goalkeeper Pau Lopez.

Lopez, 26, who has two Spanish caps, started out with Espanyol before having a season on loan at Tottenham four years ago.

Third choice at Spurs he did not make a competitive appearance and moved on to Betis before joining Roma in 2019.

Lopez's arrival at Marseille places a question mark against the future of veteran Steve Mandanda.

The 36-year-old, who was a member of France's Euro 2020 squad behind Hugo Lloris, has played for the club since 2007, save for an injury-ravaged loan spell with Crystal Palace in 2016-2017.
