Reports: Milan could make over €3m from ex-defender’s move to Saudi Arabia

By Isak Möller -

The former AC Milan defender Gustavo Gomez has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia and this could benefit the Rossoneri. In fact, they could bank over €3m, reports claim. 

Gomez arrived at Milan in the summer of 2016 from the Argentine side Lanus, with the Rossoneri paying nearly €10m for his services. However, he never really established himself at the club and only made 20 appearances.

Two years later, the centre-back joined Palmeires in a two-year loan deal and was eventually redeemed by the Brazilian, with the total amount coming in at €5.5m (as confirmed by Transfermarkt). Having said that, Milan could get a little more money.

According to César Luis Merlo, Palmeiras have received an $18m offer for their captain from Saudi Arabian side Al Ittihad. Gomez has also been offered a very hefty contract and given his age (30), the move seems likely.

As was reported by Gianluca Di Marzio back in 2018, it was first thought that Milan would sell the defender for €6m plus a 20% future resale clause. Even though the formula was changed to a loan, it’s possible that the 20% clause remained and that would make the Rossoneri entitled to around €3.3m (euros) for the potential Saudi Arabia move.

      1. One of the most reliable, i.e. Di Marzio, stated that there would be a 20% clause involved so felt it was worth reporting? Most don’t even know he’s closing in on a Saudi move I assume.

    1. Right? Gives hope to thousands of bang average players who have spent a season or two reaching at a club with a recognizable name for a big petroleum payday!

  1. He has been the best centre back in south america, but he was at the wrong moment at Milan when even Messi would work on that Sh*t team.
