Dias made a big money move from Benfica to Man City in the summer of 2020 and has become a key figure but agent Jorge Mendes has issues with the transfer deal.
The Portuguese international, who was this week named in the FIFPro World XI, was crucial in City’s triumph last term, winning the FWA Player of the Year award for his efforts.
According to a report from Portuguese news outlet A Bola, Mendes was ‘upset’ for only receiving €5 million in commission from Dias’ sale to Manchester City.
The report states that the €5M referred to 10% of the ‘real value’ of the transfer [€50M], but the agent wanted 10% of the ‘total announced value’ [€71.6M] – a commission of €7.16M.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
