Tottenham and Burnley set to earn Manchester City almost £30 million in major transfer fund boost



| Last Updated:


Manchester City are in line to earn an extra £30 million from two Premier League clubs this summer, as their already-healthy transfer fund is set to be further boosted.

The Premier League champions are conducting their ongoing transfer business wisely, and taking their time over where to strengthen in Pep Guardiola’s squad, as well as dealing with any potential outgoings this summer.

While business continues as usual, their transfer kitty is constantly being boosted, with a further £30 million expected to arrive in the bank in the coming days as a direct result of a sell-on clause, and a permanent transfer, involving two Premier League clubs.

Firstly, following a six-month loan spell at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium from Sporting, Pedro Porro has now made his temporary deal a permanent one, completing a switch to the North London club for a €40 million fee.

As such, Manchester City are now expected to receive a healthy cash boost of their own from the deal, having included a sell-on clause when originally selling Porro to Sporting back in 2022 for a £7.2 million fee.

That clause was worth 30% of any profit the Portuguese club made on the Spanish full-back, meaning City will be guaranteed around £9 million to £10 million depending on the conversion rate at the time of exchange.

It has also been confirmed in an official Sporting statement that Spurs also paid a €5 million fee to have the defender on-loan from January until the end of the most recent 2022/23 campaign.

Furthermore, and Manchester City are also on the verge of receiving an additional £15 million boost to their funds, which could rise up to £19 million depending on unnamed add-ons being achieved.

That is as a result of England under-21 international goalkeeper James Trafford, and a permanent move to recently-promoted Premier League side Burnley – managed by Vincent Kompany.

Trafford has always held strong beliefs of reaching the Premier League at some stage in his career, as well as featuring in the Champions League later down the line, and representing England’s senior team.

The move up to Premier League football completes a steady progression from the EFL for James Trafford, following loan spells at Accrington Stanley, and Bolton Wanderers last season.

Speaking last month, James Trafford said, “My long-term goal is playing in the Champions League and for England. If you want to be in the Champions League you’ve got to be in the top four teams in England. Whether it’s Manchester City or any other of the big clubs, I believe I will be at that level.”
