In the summer of 2019, Gonzalez was loaned from Villarreal to French Marseille, before the latter bought him permanently at the end of the same season.

Despite the large number of clubs represented by the Spanish defender, he did not have the opportunity to appear on the Champions League arena except in the 2020-2021 season, which he bid farewell to with Marseille from the group stage with one victory and five defeats.

While he participated in four editions of the European League, three with Villarreal, the last of which reached the quarter-finals 2018-2019, and once with Marseille, and he was eliminated from the group stage.

During the season, the French press reported that Sampaoli deliberately marginalized a number of players, with Gonzalez coming at their head.

This marginalization came as a shock to the Spanish player, especially since in May 2021, while renewing his contract until the end of the 2023-2024 season, he agreed to reduce his salary, in order to contribute to the club’s contract with Paul Lerola, Leonardo Balerdi and Amin Harith.

Sampaoli was unimpressed by Gonzalez’s financial sacrifice, and since the start of the 2021-2022 season, the player has found himself the fourth defender in the Argentine coach’s list.

The Spanish defender says about this period, during his statements to the Spanish newspaper “AS”: “What I am experiencing is bad. The coach and the club made several decisions during the renewal of my contract, and at that time I did not want to leave. I do not play.

“I asked the management to wait until the summer so that I could get a suitable offer, and I agreed, and they told me that I could participate at any time of the season.”
