Abrahams agent pockets £345k every transfer window that Man Utd target stays

A bizarre contract clause means Tammy Abraham's agent will be more than happy to see the striker stay at Roma.

The England international has enjoyed a scintillating debut campaign in Serie A, netting 27 goals in all competitions and helping Jose Mourinho's side win the inaugural Europa Conference League. Abraham's form has prompted inevitable speculation over a potential return to the Premier League, with Arsenal and Manchester United both linked.

However, Italian outlet Corriere Dello Sport claim the former Chelsea star's agent is banking a sizable bonus with each passing transfer window the 24-year-old remains in the Italian capital. Neil Fewings is reportedly paid £345,000 – providing the agent with plenty of incentives to convince the striker to stay with Roma for a little while longer yet.

Abraham made a promising start to his senior career with Chelsea, and has already registered 90 goals in English football. However, the former Aston Villa and Swansea City loanee fell out of favour at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel and was sold as the Blues brought in Romelu Lukaku.

Chelsea reportedly inserted a buyback clause of around £70 million into the sale, meaning the Blues could yet move to re-sign Abraham for a fixed fee in 2023. However, the report from Corriere Dello Sport also outlines that the striker is happy with life in Italy, and is not looking for a return to England anytime soon.

Speaking ahead of the Europa Conference League final victory over Feyenoord, Abraham told BT Sport: ‘I would say I’m more than happy here. Just the experience here, I had the experience of just the derby game. Derby games of course are big, but here they filled the roads weeks before the game.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Should Manchester United try to sign Tammy Abraham this summer? Comment below!

"That’s all they were talking about. We had another game before it, they [the fans] weren’t even talking about that game, they were saying, “We have to beat Lazio”. Just the rivalry, the atmosphere in the stadium, just everything is incredible.

"So I’m happy here. You never know what the future holds, you can’t write the future, but as far as it is I’m satisfied."

Manchester United are said to be in the market for a new forward with Edinson Cavani set to leave, and both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford failing to impress in recent months. Arsenal are expected to seal a deal for Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, but could be tempted to move for Abraham should the transfer of the Brazil international fall through.
