A BOLA – Two renewals at Alvalade (Sporting)

A BOLA – Two renewals at Alvalade (Sporting)

Well with Nuno Santos and Pedro Gonçalves: this week they will renew their contracts with Sporting. BOLA finds the two signing new bonds in the coming days, which everything indicates are valid until 2027 and 2028, respectively. Termination terms must be between 60 and 80 million.

As we have reported directly, the winger and striker have been in the process of negotiating a review of their respective contracts, and both are close to reaching the agreements already reached. Nuno Santos, 28, has a relationship with Sporting until 2025, and now he is going to extend the association, apparently for two bad years, until 2027.

The left winger arrived at Alvalade in the summer of 2020, from Rio Ave and for €3.75m – Vila-Condenses retained the right to 20% of the future sale. At that time, also coveted by FC Porto, the Lions benefited from Benfica, who was still in the presidency of Luis Felipe Vieira, having not triggered the anti-rivals clause that had been placed in the player’s association when Luz left for Vila do Conde in 2017 – However, the eagles would trigger this rule if the dragons advanced.

Once in a lion’s chest position, Nuno Santos quickly gained space in the starting line-up, first in attack, and then playing the entire flank in the Ruben Amorim 3x4x3 scheme. He won the status of the undisputed bearer and today is one of the main weapons of the whites and greens. He will then become a lion for more years and will also benefit from a salary increase. Nuno Santos is around €800,000 a season at this point, and should rise to close to €1m. The termination clause included in the contract is €60m and must not change.

The left winger has a total of 136 matches for Sporting’s main team, scoring 27 goals and 29 assists. Prepare for this season to be, once again, the bearer on the left. At the end of last season, clubs from England and France approached the player, but negotiations did not progress and the Lyon administration gave the player a contractual review.

In January, remember, in the middle of the winter market, Nice made an offer of €10m but the French club’s offer was rejected by the Lions. Now they’re going to extend Nuno Santos’ contract, a weapon that Rúben Amorim relies on in his title assault.

Pedro Gonçalves, 25, joined Sporting in the summer of 2020 for €6.5m, with Famalicao holding 50 per cent of the transfer. In Minho he played in midfield, in Alphalad Ruben Amorim put him in the attack and in the first season, which ended with an unprecedented national title in 19 years, Bute scored 23 goals, and Apolla with a silver lion on his chest. In October 2021, renew the contract, now in effect through 2026 and which this week will be renewed again for another two years, effective until June 2028.

Naturally, Pedro Gonçalves’ salary, in line with the player’s desire to be the highest paid player at Alvalade, will be increased by more than €1 million per season. His release clause will remain at €80m, the same as Diomande’s and just under €100m for Giocres.

Pedro Gonçalves is therefore more shielded, having recently been linked with English side Aston Villa and Italian side Inter, although he has already announced a renewal that will start this week.

It should be noted that Sporting recently acquired Famalicão, for 7 million euros, in addition to 40 percent of the Transmontano card, and now owns 90 percent of the player’s economic rights. In a simple arithmetic, if someone beats the player’s release clause, Sporting will receive €72m, which is a lot for those who, all in all, spent €13.5m to be able to get the Portugal international. But what is on the table now is renewal.
