Official: Lyon confirm Milan are entitled to 15% as Paqueta joins West Ham

By Isak Möller -

Lucas Paqueta has officially joined West Ham in a record-breaking deal and it has been revealed how much AC Milan will get from the transfer. Given the high fee, it’s a decent chunk for the Rossoneri. 

After a disappointing spell at the club, Milan decided to sell Paqueta in the summer of 2020 to Lyon. They received ‘just’ €20m from the sale but at least managed to include a 15% resale clause, which as it turns out was a very smart decision.

Earlier this evening, Lyon confirmed the transfer of Paqueta to West Ham for a record-breaking fee of €61.6m including bonuses (€18.6m). The French side also confirmed that Milan are entitled to 15% of the profit, i.e. potentially €61.6m-€20m = €41.6m.

Obviously, it might not be that much in the end depending on the bonuses. The Rossoneri can probably expect to cash in around €5-6m, though, which is a very welcome boost to the current transfer market pursuits.

  1. All of this is Pioli Fault.

    He failed to integrate Paqueta.

    He made Milan to sell him cheaply.

    He made Milan to get loan of the Mediocre Brahim Diaz.

    Yet that position is Milan greatest problem in 3 years.

    1. He is slow with no track back for Piolis football and he doesn’t worth the money.
      Same Pioli made Milan play good football and win the title.
      Sone fans wont stop talking nonsense bs

    2. I agree with you, we got mediocre player like brahim. But I don’t care, we won scudetto last year with mediocre player.

      1. But paqueta is also mediocre player, playing for mediocre club like west ham. Clearly he chose money over fighting for title

      2. 2020/2021 Zlatan joins Milan = Milan no trophy
        2021/2022 Messias joins Milan = Milan win Scudetto

        Logic: Messias > Zlatan

  2. Bought him for 35 then sold him for 20 couple years getting another 5 million so all in all we lost only 10 million from this samba dancer

  3. He is too stylish like samba dancer. He cannot play with gegenpressing or pioli high press formation that need to pass the ball fast . Sell him are the best way for AC Milan
