He revealed himself to La Provence in November that after playing five to ten matches in the Marseille jersey, Alvaro Gonzalez becomes de facto an OM player in its own right. The Spanish central defender is on loan from Villarreal this season, but there is a purchase option for Marseille in the contract between the two clubs. Which would therefore be lifted after a certain number of matches played in France.
The purchase option would be lifted by OM for Alvaro Gonzalez
The exact amount of the option is not known precisely, according to The Team it could vary from 4 to 8 million euros, depending on the number of appearances of the player. This is equivalent to the player’s market value, estimated by Transfermarkt on the one hand and the International Center for the Study of Sport (CIES) on the other. It is given on the one hand at 8 million euros and from 4 to 7 million on the other. Alvaro Gonzalez was twice the paid operations center to recruit him: 1 million euros from Zaragoza to Espanyol in 2014, then 4 million from Barcelona to Villarreal.
30-year-old defenseman still has contract season at Villarreal
If it were not to be kept in Marseille, it would then remain at Alvaro Gonzalez, a full season until June 30, 2021, under contract to, Villarreal. His salary at the yellow submarine is estimated to be close to 190,000 euros gross monthly, excluding variables, without knowing exactly how much is paid by Olympique de Marseille. It’s nevertheless close to the average of André Villas-Boas’s locker room this 2019-20 season.
