Charles De Ketelaere’s move to Atalanta is set to go through very soon with the medical expected to take place on Tuesday, so here is a reminder of the finances involved in the deal.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via Pianeta Milan), Atalanta will be immediately paying AC Milan a fee of €3m for the season-long loan.
Atalanta will then have the possibility to buy De Ketelaere permanently at the end of the season for an agreed fee of €26m.
Should that happen, Milan could then get a further €4m in bonuses from Atalanta. Milan will also get 10% of any sale Atalanta make of De Ketelaere in the future.
Having spent €35.5 million on De Ketelaere a year ago, the most that Milan are able to recoup thanks to this deal is €33m.
Considering De Ketelaere made almost no impact for Milan last season, it should be viewed as a success to almost break even.
