Santos slap €50 million price tag on teenager Victor Andrade
16-year-old forward, Victor Andrade, has signed a three season deal with Santos. According to press reports, the player has already attracted the attention of Manchester City and Barcelona, and Santos have written in a €50 million buyout clause in Victor’s contract – €5 million more than they want for Neymar . The player’s economic rights are shared by the club, who own 80%, and Victor’s family who have the remainder.
The striker is expected to turn out for Santos in next year’s Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior – Brazil’s biggest youth tournament – which starts in early January. Depending on his progress, Victor might then be promoted to the first team in time for the Campeonato Paulista (São Paulo state championship), which begins in mid January.
