Tammy Abraham joined AS Roma from Chelsea, joining The Special One at the Serie A side with a buy-back clause to Chelsea.
The former Chelsea academy graduate got off to a good start at Jose Mourinho’s side.
Roma are now sixth in the league, one place higher than last season, and are still competing in the Coppa Italia and the Europa Conference League.
In his last 16 appearances in all competitions, the 24-year-old striker has scored 13 goals, including six in his last six league games.
Chelsea reportedly placed a buy-back clause in their €40 million transfer agreement with Roma to ensure that our former Academy goal-machine stayed on this path.
Roma director Tiago Pinto has confirmed that the buy-back is indeed real for Tammy Abraham.
“It’s true, that clause does exist, but we are not worried. It’s only valid from 2023, but I am not concerned. I am happy because he is playing well and can get even better.” Tiago Pinto told Football Italia.
Pinto didn’t specify the precise amount, but the other data he offered (i.e. valid till 2023) match exactly what was previously reported, so there’s no reason to doubt the truth of those same claims when it comes to the fee: €80m.
