CM: Real Madrid remain watching as Milan set to sign Jimenez – the future clause

By Ben Dixon -

Reports from this morning suggest that AC Milan will complete the signing of Alex Jimenez, but there is a clause that the Rossoneri must be wary of, given Real Madrid will watch their former player with interest.

This season, Jimenez has been a sensation for the Primavera squad, and he has been rewarded with sporadic appearances with the senior side in Serie A and the Coppa Italia. Following this, a deal has been agreed to make his move permanent, as was reported during the weekend.

However, there is a clause in his deal that Milan will have to be wary of moving forward. As reports, the Spanish full-back will stay with the Rossoneri, this time on a permanent deal.

There is a drawback, though. Whilst the Diavolo officially have Jimenez permanently, Madrid can buy him in the future due to the buy-back clause inserted into the deal, and whilst this figure is ‘higher’ than what Milan have paid if he progresses at a rate similar to this season, the Spanish club could get themselves a bargain.

Whilst the plan for Jimenez’s future has been laid by the Diavolo, they will have to be wary of the clause that could eventually loom over them.

  1. Real does this every time and Milan somehow “forgets” to add the same clause when they’re selling. Or could it be that they admit they suck at developing youth players and all they produce is cr@p not worth “investing” in?

    Probably end up selling Camarda for 5M€ and regret it later.

  2. So we need to hope the player does well and says no to the buy back?
    And that’s the only way we can make more that a couple of million €.

  3. I hope the buy back clause is removed. Or at least, if it’s still there like reported by Schira (15m) there should be expiration time – for example the clause only valid for next summer.

    Or it could be different buyback clause with every year passed – for example :
    – Next summer (2025) 15m
    – Summer 2026 25m
    – Summer 2027 35m
    2028 and beyond – void, need to re negotiate.

    1. Because if the buyback clause is only 15m and Real can activate it as they wish it’s beyond stupid… Imagine after 3 years he become our starting full back, valued 40m, and RM can buy him for just 15m. Lol

      1. lol I think RM will be able to buy him for 15 mln. The guy has potential, and they see it. Same as what happened with Diaz.

  4. Milan has not agreed to a buy-back clause, just as they didn’t when they got Theo. That experience is why Madrid is trying to insert a buy-back clause in this deal. I believe Milan will only end up paying more for him, than agreeing to a clause that may haunt them. We are no ‘development ground’ for Madrid rejects, only for them to poach the players for cheap in the near future.
