Vitinha at OM, the scandalous figures

OM formalized this Tuesday evening the recruitment of Vitinha from Braga. A record transfer.

OM have just offered themselves Vitinha, a 22-year-old Portuguese striker, during the deadline day of the winter transfer window. Perceived by observers as one of the most promising players of his generation. After tough negotiations, and despite competition from Premier League teams such as Southampton and Brighton, OM won their bet.

OM’s biggest transfer

A contract for a period of four and a half years and a transfer fee slightly higher than the 30 million euros of his release clause (26 million euros plus 4 to 6 million bonuses). You are not dreaming, this is the most important transaction in the history of the club. In front of the 30 million disbursed for the return of Dimitri Payet from West Ham in 2017.

Note that Braga has managed to place a Braga a 10% incentive on any capital gain on resale; as well as a preferential buyout clause, up to 60 million euros, for the player who has scored 13 goals and 5 assists this season in 27 games in all competitions in his ranks. A rather surly player who should therefore please Olympian supporters according to Carlos Freitas, former director of football at Braga: “ He is an aggressive player with ease in front of goal. He fits well with the profile of Marseille supporters: he wets the jersey, he is intense, dynamic and hard-hitting. It is atypical compared to the classic Portuguese profile. He is a top striker capable of playing alone or in pairs. In recent seasons, he has played with another player alongside him. It has come out of the shadows for the past eighteen months and has been constantly evolving ever since. It’s a good investment for OM. »
