Lucas Paquetá has moved to the Premier League, and Milan get some money out of it.
Paquetá left Milan in 2020 to join Olympique Lyonnais for €20m and today he made another move, joining West Ham.
Through an official statement, Lyon revealed the numbers: “Olympique Lyonnais confirms the transfer of Brazilian international midfielder, Lucas Paquetá, to English club West Ham for a total amount of €61.630 million, including €18.680 million in bonuses spread over the player’s 5-year contract and plus an additional 10% sell-on fee.
“Moreover, and as had been concluded during his initial transfer, 15% of the amount of the capital gain realized will be passed on to his former club, Milan, according to the rate established in that contract.”
It’s not entirely clear what is considered ‘capital gain’ and how much Milan will get, but according to Calcio e Finanza and others, the Rossoneri are set to receive around €6m from the transfer.
