Roma Collecting Cash Thanks to Previous Resale Clauses

Roma have sold multiple players and are getting a little financial boost from the transfers of their former contributors too thanks to resale clauses. Cengiz Under left Olympique Marseille to join Fenerbahce in a €15M move. The Giallorossi will get 20 percent of the fee, therefore €3M, Il Tempo relays (via OneFootball).

The capital side is hoping for one extra cash infusion tied to Nicolò Zaniolo. Aston Villa and Zenit are after him. The former proposed a loan with an option to buy, delaying the disbursement to next year. The Russian club offered more to him and Galatasaray, but he’s keener on the other destination.

The income for Roma directly hinges on how much the move of the Azzurri star fetches. They are owed €2M if the fee is above €20M, or 20 percent of the difference if it’s between that threshold and €16.5M. The Giallorossi and the Cimbom concurred on a convoluted €15M deal last February.

The winger has a €35M release clause, but Aston Villa are trying to lure him with a different formula. It remains to be seen whether they’ll be successful or be forced to trigger it.

Roma raised funds by cashing in on Roger Ibanez, Benjamin Tahirovic, Nemanja Matic, and a few misfits. Despite that, they have been unwilling to spend this summer. They’ll pay €2.5M for Leandro Paredes, Sky relays.
