Leeds United announced the signing of Jean-Kevin Augustin on Monday, with the player arriving on loan from RB Leipzig for the rest of the season.
The Championship club said they have a purchase option should they choose to keep the 22 year old for longer than the agreed period.
Bild now reports what they say are the details of the option, and present it as a good deal for the Bundesliga club.
According to the German newspaper, RB Leipzig are set for a ‘mega deal’ should Leeds United manage promotion to the Premier League. It’s claimed if Marcelo Bielsa’s side are promoted then the purchase option will become mandatory and see Leeds have to pay €21m for Augustin.
AS Monaco, who have had the player on loan for the first half of the season, had an option of around the same amount, however, it became clear they weren’t looking at keeping him long term.
Bild say Monaco agreed a €4m loan fee for the current campaign, and Leeds United will now take care of half of that.
Augustin cost RB Leipzig €13m in 2017 when he moved from PSG.
