Excellent news in perspective for Olympique de Marseille? In the winter of 2023, OM thought they had hit the nail on the head by poaching Vitinha (23 years old) from Sporting Braga for a check for €32 million. But it is clear that in the space of a year, the Portuguese striker has never managed to win at Canebière. Despite good intentions on the meadow, the Lusitanian often faltered in the finish. With only 4 goals and 3 assists in 27 appearances in Olympian colors, the 23-year-old failed to justify the investment made by his managers. As a result, he was loaned to Genoa with an option to buy during the last winter transfer window.

Although he had a difficult start with the Italian team, Vitinha seems to gradually find his place in Alberto Gilardino's squad. Author of his first goal with the Griffons on March 9 against Monza, the main interested party could see his adventure in Italy continue, according to the recent comments of his sporting director, Marco Ottolini. “In January we included players of the future and we are happy with what Vitinha is doing, with the way he has positioned himself. We'll see what happens by the end of the season.”explained the Genoese leader at the microphone of Calcio Mercato.
