In the transfer of Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, the Pole’s agent, Pini Zahavi, received a commission of several million euros.
How much was Pini Zahavi’s commission for the transfer of Robert Lewandowski to FC Barcelona? It amounts to millions of euros, but perhaps less than what had been announced so far.
A few weeks, the Spanish press speaks of 20 million euros, paid during the four years of the contract of the Polish striker. But The Athletic reveals this Wednesday that the commission could be around 10 million.
Laporta confirms crucial role of Zahavi
For the agent received, it was still a very nice operation, on a transfer resulting in 45 million euros. For comparison, Zahavi had pocketed just over 10 million euros in commission when Neymar transferred to PSG in 2017.
The president of Barça, Joan Laporta, did not hide the role of Zahavi, in an interview with the New York Times. “He was crucial in the signing of Robert Lewandowski, he acknowledged. He assured me from the start that he would resist offers from other clubs, mostly from club states, who would have allowed the player.” It was well worth a few million euros in commission.
