Arsenal released Sead Kolasinac then Olympique Marseille signed him right after.


Sead Kolasinac is no longer an Arsenal player as of today, but he wasn’t unemployed for long as Olympique Marseille picked him up right away and gave him a new deal.

“The 28-year-old defender who joined us from German side Schalke in June 2017, has become a free agent with his contract being terminated with immediate effect and has joined French Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international, who spent the second half of last season back on loan with Schalke, made 118 appearances in all competitions during his time with us.

Spending six seasons in Schalke’s first-team squad, Sead was named in the Bundesliga Team of the Season for 2016/17 before signing for us that summer. He made an instant impact, scoring on his debut against Chelsea in the FA Community Shield, a game that ended 1-1, with us winning on penalties.

The left-sided defender, who featured at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, won the FA Cup with us in 2020, coming on a late substitute in the 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Sead for his contribution to the club since he joined us in 2017 and wish him all the best for his future.” Arsenal wrote about the situation with Sead.

Arsenal is becoming very notorious for tearing players’ contracts, they did the same to Mesut Ozil, and now they have done it to Sead Kolasinac.

Arsenal or Sead did not reveal the financial details of the separation but Futballnews thinks he must have been paid off for him to agree to leave the club early.

What is Sead Kolasinac’s contract condition with Arsenal? Sead Kolasinac signed a 4 year / £20,800,000 contract with the Arsenal F.C., including an annual average salary of £5,200,000. In 2021, Kolasinac will earn a base salary of £5,200,000, while carrying a cap hit of £5,200,000. He was earning £100,000 per week.
