Alexander Sørloth’s transfer to German RB Leipzig will mean money in the bank for several Norwegian clubs.
Rosenborg will walk away with around NOK 5 million.
Strindheim, Rosenborg, and possibly Bodø/Glimt are entitled to so-called solidarity funds after Sørloth was sold to Leipzig on Tuesday.
According to international media, the transition is valued at NOK 20-25 million.
That corresponds to NOK 220-270 million.
Newspaper Adresseavisen has calculated how much the Norwegian clubs should receive, and the end result is – millions.
Millions to Strindheim, Rosenborg, and Bodø/Glimt?
If the transition ends up costing EUR 20 million, Strindheim will receive NOK 1.35 million, Rosenborg NOK 4.6 million, and Glimt NOK 1.1 million unless the loan agreement with Rosenborg states that the funds should not go to Glimt.
If, on the other hand, the transfer amounts to EUR 25 million, Strindheim will receive 1.7 million, Rosenborg 5.8 million, and Glimt 1.35 million.
“It is clear that this is good for the economy in these times. We know we’ll have “red” numbers this season, so it’s positive to get a little boost to the accounts,” Rosenborg’s sports manager Mikael Dorsin told Adressa.
