When players move on loans with options for permanent transfers, there are always long negotiations regarding all the numbers involved in the operation.
Some clubs pay a fee for the signing, then the salaries may or not be shared, and there’s of course the final price for the potential purchase.
Regarding the transfer of André Zambo Anguissa from Fulham to Napoli this summer, new claims from Italy say the clubs made a little adjustment when closing the deal.
The information is brought by RAI journalist Ciro Venerato, who, speaking to Kiss Kiss Napoli, claimed that the Craven Cottage side could end up making a few extra millions in case the player ends up moving on a permanent transfer.
“Anguissa’s right of redemption has gone from twelve million to fifteen, because Napoli, keeping Petagna, asked Fulham to participate in the salary of the Cameroon footballer,” said Venerato (via Area Napoli).
“Then the blue club asked to increase the amount of the buying clause, allowing the English club to participate in the payment of the salary. Napoli, at the end of the season, can exercise the right to redeem and buy the midfielder outright.”
Following the three appearances Anguissa made for Fulham at the start of the season, he made his debut for Napoli at the weekend, playing the 90 minutes in the 2-1 win over Juventus.
Now he has the entire season to convince the Italian side of going for his permanent signing, and he’s certainly started on the right foot.
