Liverpool Set to Earn £9m from Shrewd Deal Made by Michael Edwards Six Years Ago

Liverpool could benefit from a substantial £65 million sale this summer, even though they no longer own the player.

The Athletic reports that Dominic Solanke might leave Bournemouth this summer, but the Cherries won’t let him go easily. They are keen to keep their star striker, who scored 19 goals in the Premier League last season.

However, they may not have a choice. Solanke’s contract includes a £65m release clause, which allows him to leave if a team pays that amount. There is a catch, though.

According to the report, the release clause only applies to certain clubs, though it doesn’t specify which ones. It is speculated that Liverpool are one of them, considering they sold Solanke to Bournemouth.

Liverpool had a buyback clause in the original deal, but it has since expired. They do have a clause that entitles them to 20 percent of the profit from any future sale.

This clause activates for any deal over £19m, the amount Bournemouth paid for Solanke. Since Bournemouth won’t sell for less than the release clause, Liverpool stand to gain a substantial amount.

The profit would be £46m, with Liverpool’s 20 percent share amounting to around £9m. If Solanke moves this summer, that is the figure Liverpool would receive.

Not a bad for a player who left six years ago.

Solanke was always recognised as a talent at Liverpool, but he never quite fit in. He was unlucky, given that the Reds’ front three were firmly established and performing exceptionally well.

Since then, Solanke has shown himself to be the player Liverpool believed he could be. Scoring 19 Premier League goals is an impressive feat for any striker, especially one playing for a club ranked 12th.

It’s possible that someone might trigger his release clause in the coming months. If that happens, it would be a significant win for Liverpool as well.
