An interesting bit of information has arisen regarding a clause related to Matteo Pessina, who AC Milan sold to Atalanta four years ago.
Pessina came through the youth system at Milan but was sold outright to Atalanta as part of the Andrea Conti operation back in summer 2017. Having become the designated heir of Papu Gomez after leaving for Sevilla, his performances have begun to attract attention, and the Rossoneri were wise enough to obtain a 50% resale clause which basically allows them to buy him back at half price.
Speaking on Sky Italia (via MilanNews), Gianluca Di Marzio took stock of the Pessina-Milan situation and revealed that Milan paid €24m for Conti while Pessina went the other way for €1m. The Rossoneri will receive €3m if the young playmaker – who scored tonight for Italy against Wales – reaches 100 appearances with Atalanta.
In addition, if Pessina does hit 100 matches with the Bergamo team then the 50% of future resale clause that Milan has will vanish.
