Flamengo get Gabigol bonus

Inter have agreed to loan Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa to Flamengo until December, but there’s a clause in case an offer comes in during 2019.

The striker just returned from a successful loan spell at Santos, his former club, and is returning to Brazil once more.

He had been linked with West Ham United, but it’s reported they couldn’t get him a work permit.

Gabigol today essentially confirmed via social media that he was going to join Flamengo.

According to Sky Sport Italia, there is a rather unusual clause in the deal.

Flamengo are getting the forward for free, only paying his salary and performance-related bonuses.

However, if a big offer comes in to purchase Barbosa before the loan deal expires in December, then Flamengo will receive five per cent of the transfer fee.
