Deportivo Independiente Medellín are set to pocket €3m this summer, should Alfredo Morelos end up leaving Glasgow Rangers.
That’s according to Marca, who explain how various clauses that the Colombian side still hold could earn them a nice windfall this summer.
Morelos has been heavily linked with a move away from Ibrox for several months, with clubs in England and around Europe thought to be keen on him after another impressive campaign in which he’s scored 29 goals in all competitions.
Indeed, reports over the last week have indicated that Ligue 1 side Lille are pushing ahead with a deal as they look to replace Victor Osimhen, who is seemingly on his way to Napoli.
Rangers are said to value Morelos at around €20m, and if that is the price he goes for, Marca explain that Deportivo Independiente Medellín (or DIM) would earn a ‘significant amount of money’.
Morelos made his debut for the club in 2014 and are owed a percentage of his future deals due to the ‘solidarity mechanism’ implemented by FIFA.
But that is not the only reason that DIM ‘smiles’. They retain 12% of the player’s rights after selling him to Helsinki in 2016.
Thus, in the event of a €20m deal, they would receive ‘just over’ €3m, which is an important figure for the club considering how finances have been hit as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and football’s hiatus.
Morelos will have to leave Rangers first of course, but with numerous rumours and seemingly plenty of interest, Deportivo Independiente Medellín look set to make money at some point.
