Manchester United are set to make some money from Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus.
It seems the Real Madrid star is making good on his threat to leave the club, which he of course mooted for the first time after winning his third Champions League in a row, and fifth overall.
He seemed unhappy at the Spanish side, and it could well be the case that he makes good on his wish to leave, with a move to Juventus expected to be announced in the coming days – and a fee of £88 million mooted.
United don’t have a sell-on clause, but they will make a couple of million due to developing Ronaldo in his earlier days, with the Solidarity Mechanism FIFA implemented giving them 5% of the profits from the sale.
The clause is for any club who help a player between the ages of 12 and 23, and they’re not the only ones who will pocket some cash, with his former clubs also getting part of the fee.
Portuguese publication Record worked out the amounts, and while it’s not a huge sum of money, every little helps.
Manchester United: £2.2m
Sporting Lisbon: £1.98m
