Thomas Partey’s agent confirmed the €50m release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract. “Inter are a top club and he is better than Paul Pogba.”
There have already been reports linking the Ghana international with a summer swoop from the Nerazzurri.
“There is no reason why he won’t move to Italy. Inter, like Atleti are a top team,” his representative Jose Daniel Jimenez Pozanco told FcInterNews.
“He has a €50m release clause and in football anything is possible, just look at Diego Godin leaving to join Inter and Antoine Griezmann possibly on his way to Barcelona.”
The 25-year-old was recently voted Ghanaian Footballer of the Year and was voted into the best 11 African players of the season and his agent was quick to make a comparison with Manchester United’s Pogba.
“He is like Pogba, he’s a box to box player, but he is better than the Frenchman, as he does more defensive work. I feel that because he is African, he gets much less media coverage than the Manchester United player.
“I first watched him play in Ghana, I immediately recognized his qualities and thought that if he could improve on a tactical level, he would be one of the best in the world.
“I told him he must listen, learn and remain humble. A person should always remember where they came from and he has got where he has through hard work. Nobody handed him anything.”
