Official: Manquillo joins Marseille

Marseille have announced the signing of Javi Manquillo from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan, with the option of a permanent transfer next summer.

According to L’OM’s official website, a deal has been agreed in principle, with the 21-year-old now set to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical.

Manquillo, a 2013-14 Spanish champion with Atleti, joined Liverpool on a two-year loan last summer but became surplus to requirements and consequently saw his arrangement cut short.

He had also been linked with moves to Roma and Marseille’s Ligue 1 rivals Bordeaux.
