Franck Kessie’s move from Barcelona to Al-Ahli SC has been made official, and AC Milan will actually make something from the transfer.
Kessie left Milan a year ago after the Scudetto win to join Barca on a free transfer given his deal with the Rossoneri ran out, and yet despite the fact there was no sell-on involved because it was a Bosman, there are still some sums to pay out.
As Calcio e Finanza report, Barcelona recorded a net capital gain from the sale of the Ivorian. As such, a solidarity contribution will in fact be given to the clubs that have had the player in question as a registered player from the 12th to the 23rd year of age.
It consists of 5% of the amount of each transfer, which means Milan will collect €187k for having had the player from 21 to 23 years of age. Atalanta and Cesena will also receive money, while below is the breakdown:
➤ Milan: 187,500 euros
➤ Atalanta: 62,500 euros
➤ Cesena: 62,500 euros
➤ Stella Club d’Adjamé: 312,500 euros
