Nelio Lucas and Adriano Galliani are working together in this transfer market but Doyen Sports insist that they are merely advisors.
Milan successfully concluded the negotiations with Porto over Jackson Martinez and the Colombian will be wearing the colours of the Rossoneri next season as Adriano Galliani and Nelio Lucas together found a deal with Porto and with the 28-year-old striker.
Milan will pay €35mfor Martinez and are also linked with a €30m move for Geoffrey Kondogbia who has ties to Doyen Sports and Lucas, who have entered to the Aldo Rossi club along with the purchase of shares by Bee Taechaubol (which will officially take place within 6-8 weeks).
“Taechaubol with a letter to Silvio Berlusconi indicated that Nelio Lucas is his technical adviser,” Vice President Galliani is quoted as saying on Corriere della Sera, also stating that Doyen don’t enter the capital of Milan. “I’ve known Lucas from 2013 (they had a few meetings in the past) and we’re happy to partner up with him as he’s someone who knows football and with whom I’m comfortable.”
Doyen also released a statement to CorSera: “Milan? We are not funding any transfer because it’s no longer possible. We can help Milan return to being great with our knowledge in the field of the transfer market and for example with our team of scouts, which is one of the secrets to our success.
“The collaboration is between both Doyen & Milan and between Bee Taechaubol and Nelio Lucas, who are friends. Lucas is Bee’s advisors and he will be of support for Galliani.”
FIFA has imposed a veto which indicates that third-party companies, such as Doyen Sports, cannot ‘move’ players or grant loans to clubs in order to facilitate a purchase of a player in exchange for percentages of future sales. Regardless, Galliani seems to be welcoming help from Doyen.
