Official | Marseille confirm the sale of Dória to Santos Laguna for €2m

Marseille have announced the departure of Brazilian defender Matheus “Dória” Macedo for Mexican club Santos Laguna.

The 23-year-old leaves the Stade Vélodrome after originally joining the club in 2014- following a promising period playing for Brazilian side Botafogo – whereupon shortly after signing for the then-Marseille coach Marcelo Bielsa, was swiftly assigned to the reserve side, playing in the French fourth tier throughout 2014/15.

Macedo made just 33 appearances in all competitions for Marseille, in a period that included loan spells to São Paulo and Granada.

The defender has signed a 4-year contract with his new club in Mexico.
