Clauses in the agreement for Gabriel Jesus' move to Manchester City can increase the share of Palmeiras
Brasileirão top scorer with ten goals, Palmeiras attacker Gabriel Jesus played with Neymar on Thursday in Brazil's opening game in the Olympic Games.
Gabriel Jesus has just completed his first year as a starter at Palmeiras, and hasn't even been called up to the Brazilian senior team. But when Neymar exchanged Brazil for Spain in 2013 as the best player in the country, he was the poster-boy of the Seleção and also had a Copa Libertadores winner's medal with him. However, Palmeiras will make more money from Gabriel Jesus' transfer to Manchester City than what Santos had received from Neymar's sale to Barcelona.
Out of the total €32.75 million transfer fee, Palmeiras will receive €20.75 million, while the rest will be with the agents who had part of the economic rights and also the player himself. Remember that the €19.3 million pocketed by Santos include €9.4 million at the time of purchase and the rest based on other clauses. According to Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola, the agreement between Palmeiras and City also provides clauses that can increase the profit of the Verdão. They will receive 5% of any future negotiation of Gabriel Jesus, and if the player wins FIFA's Ballon d'Or Award, then City will have to pay another €3 million. If Gabriel is included in the Ballon d'Or top-3, then Palmeiras gets €1 million, and the Premier League side must pay €1 million if they win the UEFA Champions League title.
