According to Relevo, the deal will be worth €20m in a fixed fee with a further €5m available in variables.

Sadiq is in fact the second reinforcement that Real Sociedad have brought in since the departure of Isak, following the addition of Alexander Sorloth on loan.

Overall, the Txuri-Urdin have managed the situation as best as could be hoped. Imanol Alguacil has more depth at the position now, with arguably a more accomplished striker in Sadiq. In the process they have also made a minimum of €45m in profit.
