The purchase option, estimated at 5 million euros, was subject to two conditions: that OM finish in the top ten of Ligue 1, and that Harit play at least 15 matches. Both conditions were met.
Amine Harit officially signed a four-year contract with OM on Saturday, running until June 2027. The 26-year-old Moroccan international is expected to return to action on Monday.
