His Release Clause is €80m: Villarreal Tells AC Milan After Chukwueze’s Brace Against Real Madrid
The future of Nigeria international winger Samuel Chukwueze at Spanish side Villarreal isn’t certain as he enters the final year of his deal with the club, OGN reports.
Chukwueze will have a year left on his deal at the end of the season and with no talks of an extension, it’s likely that he will leave the club in the summer. Villarreal are also open to letting the 23 year old leave as they will struggle to renew his deal due to the LaLiga strict financial control regulations.
His representatives could demand a salary that could stretch the budget of the team particularly with the kind of season he is having at the moment. Presently he has 13 goals and 11 assists in all competitions including a brace against league giants Real Madrid.
For now AC Milan are the team to have sounded out the representatives of the Nigerian but any deal will be done in the region of his release clause, which presently stands at €80m unless Villarreal agrees to negotiate it down.
AC Milan will be hoping they will be open to a deal for a fee less than what is in his deal with a year on his deal and also with the fact that he could agree to a pre contract with a team abroad by January 2024. Aside from AC Milan, Napoli are also said to be interested in bringing him to the Diego Maradona Stadium.
Napoli sees his potential signing as one of the likely means to get Victor Osimhen to extend his deal at the club due to their very close relationship, which dates back to 2015 when they met in the camp of the Nigeria U17 team.
