Agent of Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey, Daniel Jimenez, believes the Atletico de Madrid star’s release clause is cheap.
English Premier League duo of Manchester United and Arsenal have both been linked with moves for the 25-year-old. Inter Milan as well as Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are also speculated to be interested in the star.
The Ghanaian midfielder has had an impressive season which has attracted interest from a number of big name clubs. While Simone wants to keep him, Partey has a €50m release clause and Atletico would be powerless to prevent him leaving if it’s met.
“I can say that right now, I haven’t talked to anyone, even if Inter are a top club,” he said.
“There’s a €50m release clause in his contract, a figure that’s cheap for a player like Thomas. We’ll wait for the season to end and then we’ll see,” He revealed.
