Augsburg hoping to cash in if Baba Rahman is sold by Chelsea

German Bundesliga side Augsburg are hoping to cash in on Baba Rahman's next move.

The Bavarian club pocked a record 25 million euros from his sale to English Premier League champions Chelsea.

If the Ghana international is sold by Chelsea, Augsburg will be entitled to 0.5 percent of his onward transfer fee as training compensation [ ie. a ten million transfer would fetch 50,000 euros].

On the other hand, the contract between the Augsburg and Chelsea includes an onward transfer fee.

It is reported that a 10% onward transfer fee was agreed upon

When Rahman was sold to Chelsea, his former club Greuther Fürth pocketed 3.75 million euros from his deal which represented 15 percent of the transfer fee.
