A Bola has revealed that Glasgow Rangers and Porto are close to agreeing a fee of €17m (£14.6m) for the transfer of Alfredo Morelos.
The Lowdown: Morelos heavily linked with move
Colombia international Morelos has been heavily linked with a move to the Portuguese outfit.
The 25-year-old is said to have already agreed personal terms ahead of a move (Antena 1), and now there has been an update in regards to an agreement between the clubs.
The Latest: Fee said to be close
Now, this report has revealed how much the Gers could receive from the sale of Morelos.
The fee would include a down-payment of €12m (£10.3m), with €5m (£4.3m) available to the Gers in add-ons.
The Verdict: Cheap
Of course, Steven Gerrard, Ross Wilson and the rest of the Gers hierarchy will not want to see Morelos leave the club. He has scored 94 goals in 182 matches for them (Transfermarkt), and has often been their most important player.
However, having previously stated that he wants to play in a more competitive league (Goal.com), it will come as little surprise that he could now move on.
Will Morelos still be at Rangers by the end of the transfer window?
When he does go, though, the Gers must make sure they get a good deal – and in this case, it feels as though they could be left a little short-handed.
It had previously been stated they were looking for £20m last summer (The Daily Mail) for his services. Now, it seems they will barely get half of that as a down-payment, and there is no guarantee Morelos will match the requirements needed for the Gers to get the add-ons either. The 55-time Scottish champions should really be looking for more than what is being reported.
In other news, Rangers fans were delighted by news on this four-goal ace.
