The biggest problem was the compensation that Manchester City had to pay to RB Leipzig
Big and exclusive news comes from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. Croatian defender Joško Gvardiol is on the verge of the biggest job in Croatian football and sports history. Negotiations and implementation are advanced, but Manchester City reportedly did not agree to a fixed price of 100 million euros plus bonuses. Gvardiol has already completed part of his medical examinations, and the question is when he will sign the contract.
In addition to Gvardiol and RB Leipzig’s earnings, Dinamo Zagreb – will also earn well. RB Leipzig bought Gvardiol from Dinamo two years ago for 18.8 million euros. Part of the contract between the clubs was the provision that Dinamo would receive 20 percent of the following transfer of Guardiola. If Roman is to be believed that RB Leipzig agreed to sell Gvardiol for 100 million euros, their earnings would be 81.2 million euros. In that case, Dinamo would receive around 16 million euros.
In that case, Gvardiol would become the most expensive stopper of all time and thus break the previous record for the price of a transfer held by Harry Maguire (€87 million from Leicester to Manchester United). In the ranking of the highest-paid players, he will take seventh place. Ahead of him are Neymar (222 million euros), Mbappe (180 million euros), Coutinho (135 million euros), Dembele (135 million euros), Felix (127.2 EUR million) and E. Fernandez (EUR 121 million).
