Liverpool just bagged a £2m windfall for player they sold under Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool just received £2m for Kamil Grabara - a player they sold years ago. The Reds have been smart with their clauses.

The Athletic reports that Liverpool received around £2m for Kamil Grabara this week. No, you haven't stumbled upon an article from 2021 - this was the result of a sell-on clause.

The Reds actually sold Grabara to Copenhagen back in 2021, receiving around £3m for the player. He's now gone to Wolfsburg in a deal that was initially set earlier this year.

That deal was for £11.4m and Liverpool benefitted from including a 20% sell-on clause in their sale to Copenhagen. Thus they've received around £2m this week for doing absolutely nothing.

What a deal that is.

Liverpool receive Grabara fee

Of course, it does seem like Liverpool undersold Grabara back in 2011. £3m and a sell-on clause was decent at the time but he clearly had the quality to go much further - and quickly has done.

Now he's a goalkeeper worth north of £11m and at 25, perhaps he'll kick on further than that in a bigger league. Certainly, he's one to watch in Germany.

At the end of the day, though, Liverpool were never going to give Grabara the opportunities he needed to improve. It's hard enough giving them to Caoimhin Kelleher, but the Reds have managed to develop him into a goalkeeper they believe is worth closer to £30m.

And so the best they could have done with the Pole was a sell-on clause. It's a strategy that Liverpool like, and they most notably did it with Dominic Solanke when he moved to Bournemouth.

He's now valued over £60m and the Reds could receive a substantial fee if he moves on this summer. Something close to £10m.

And if Kelleher does leave Anfield, he'll almost certainly have something similar in his contract.
