OM and LOSC on the trail of Steven Nzonzi
At 32 years old and with a contract drawing to a close, Steven Nzonzi is no longer worth the 26 million (excluding bonus), paid for him by the Louve club, in 2018. The player was then a fresh world champion in Russia. The situation has changed, he is not desired by José Mourinho, the coach in place in Rome and could therefore leave on Tuesday. If it is a question of a dry transfer, the estimate of its market value differs; it is 8 million euros, for Transfermarkt , but less than half (2 to 4 million €), for the Football Observatory.
A final contractual season at Roma
For compensatory indemnity for the remaining contractual seasons in Steven Nzonzi. Or rather, the season, since he has just started the last, until the end of his lease, on June 30, 2022. In Rome, the defensive midfielder approaches a salary of 3.1 million euros net the season, according to figures from the Gazzetta dello Sport . This is a lot for the LOSC and the OM, forced to procrastinate on this issue, or even to find cash first.
