Monza has reportedly agreed a loan deal for Arsenal defender Pablo Mari, with the Serie A side committing to buying the centre-back next summer.
In a report from Gianluca Di Marzio, the details of Marie’s move to Monza have finally been revealed, as the Spaniard is set to sign the newly promoted Italian team on loan for the season before the temporary signing becomes permanent in 2023, a deal that will delight many Arsenal fans.
Loan deals with buyout commitments are common in Italian football yet have yet to spread to the wider European football scene, but with Arsenal agreeing a similar transfer last summer with Matteo Guendouzi and Olympique de Marseille, Arsenal seem to be a fan. of these moves.
With Mari signing to Arsenal in 2020 for £14m, fans will be delighted to see the defender leave north London for good, and this deal is for Monza to sign the centre-back on loan with an obligation to buy primarily. Fate appeared in Lombardy with the Serie A team.
Indeed, with Arsenal studying sales this month, Marie being taken off their books in some form is a huge result for the north London club, with the defender set to become the latest departure for Mikel Arteta following Bernd Leno’s move to Fulham earlier this week.
With Lucas Torreira close to joining Galatasaray and the likes of Hector Bellerin, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Nicolas Pepe also heading towards exit, Mari’s signing with Monza is a huge burden on Arsenal’s shoulders, and the Italian side themselves have secured a very good deal.
Monza made a coup in signing Marie from Arsenal
Mari may not have trained at Arsenal and the Premier League, but it’s easy to forget that the defender was fantastic last season on loan at Udinese, where before that the Spaniard was South America’s best central defender with Flamengo. They won the Copa Libertadores and reached the final of the FIFA Club World Cup.
England are not suitable for most players, however Italy proved perfect for Mari last season and for Monza they likely have a turnover in the Arsenal defender that could keep the ambitious Serie A side from relegation if he is the center back. It adapts well.
