The sensation of Girona in La Liga, Savinho, has been targeted by Barcelona for 2024 and is expected to make waves in the upcoming transfer window. The forward currently plays for Girona, where he is part of the City Group, but Atlético still retains a 12.5% stake in him in the event of a transfer.
Despite the interest, no formal proposal or negotiations have been initiated with the player. Furthermore, the City Group has set its requirements for the player to leave his current club. At 19 years of age, the club’s asking price for the player exceeds 20 million euros.
As a result, the chances of a successful negotiation are relatively small, given that this amount is nearly three times the fee paid for the transfer of the player from Atlético Mineiro to an overseas club. However, there are some advantages to consider, such as the player’s age and performance.
In any case, the City Group continues to assess the possibilities and is aware of the negotiation conditions. Savinho moved abroad in June 2023 and has been having an excellent season on the Old Continent.
Savinho set to generate income for Brazilian club
If a potential deal is concluded, Atlético, which already made a good profit from Savinho’s previous sale, could earn even more. With the specified value for negotiating the forward, the Brazilian club would still receive an additional 2.5 million euros, which is more than 13 million.
When he was sold previously, Atlético earned approximately 6.6 million euros. However, the club could potentially receive an additional 6 million euros for the player’s rights. Savinho, who is under contract with Troyes in France until 2027, continues to be evaluated for his performance and is in Barcelona’s sights.
The club sees the player as an excellent business opportunity, as FIFA still guarantees up to 5% of his rights to clubs associated with the player until the age of 23. In the current season, the forward has played 12 matches, providing 4 assists and scoring 4 goals.
