SCORENigeria can exclusively report that the agent Victor Osimhen fired before he eventually signed for Napoli has been paid the equivalent of 500 million Naira so that he will not press for his agency fee in court.
“This has been an amicable settlement and the agent who first started the transfer of Osimhen has been paid off,” a top source told only SCORENigeria
“He has received about 500 million Naira so as to drop any court case.”
Jean-Gerald Benoit Czajka had threatened he will drag Osimhen and new agent William d’Avila to court to claim the 5 million Euros (about 2.5 billion Naira) agency fee agreed for brokering the striker’s record-breaking transfer from Lille to Napoli.
“I am lucky to be a structured person and to have some resources, so I will go to the end, if only for all these agents who are victims of similar situations, but who cannot defend themselves and who lose the fruit of all their work for years …” he told France Football in an interview in July.
Osimhen became the most expensive African player when Napoli signed him in the summer for over 80 million Euros from Ligue 1 club Lille.
However, the transfer was delayed for several weeks after the striker parted ways with the agent who took him out of Nigeria to Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg in 2016.
