It’s been almost a month since Leicester City signed Ricardo Pereira, but his transfer continues to get stories in the Portuguese media.
Now, the reason for it is the part of the fee that is going to Vitória de Guimarães, which is seen as a big deal for the club.
When Vitória sold Ricardo to Porto in 2013 in a €1.6m deal, they kept 12% of a future transfer, according to newspaper O Jogo.
Now the same outlet reports that from the €20m paid by Leicester City to take the player from Porto, Vitória are getting €2.2m.
This amount may not sound like a bid deal for English clubs, but should mean a lot for Vitória, as the transaction is one of the top pieces of income the club has had in the past few years.
Leicester City have reportedly already paid another €2m for the transfer, which was a bonus due to the player’s call up to the World Cup. But O Jogo claims that Vitória won’t have the right to a percentage of it, as their agreement only works with the initial fee.
