Sheffield United are currently in the process of acquiring Oli McBurnie, the Swansea City striker. The newly-concluded deal is worth $24,46m.
As for the initial fee for the player aged 23, it’s reportedly $21,40m. The rest of the offer mostly depends on add-ons.
As a matter of fact, Bradford City, which is the football club that sold the player to Swansea United in 2015, is expected to obtain up to 15% of the revenue that exceeds $2,45m.
By the way, the previous season Oli McBurnie managed to score up to 24 goals. The given outcome helped Swansea City to finish 10th in the Championship.
Over the next two days, the player is expected to undergo a medical test with Sheffield United. This Blades’ deal with Swansea City happens to be the football club’s 8th for this summer.
Earlier this month, the Blades signed Bournemouth’ Lys Mousset for $12,22m. McBurnie’s transfer has definitely broken that record.
Besides this, the Blades also bought such players as Dean Henderson, Phil Jagielka, Ben Osborn, Luke Freeman, Ravel Morrison as well as Callum Robinson.
