Atletico Madrid signing Gelson Martins is going back to Sporting CP for a payout.
Record says among the players who decided to put an end to their time at Sporting was Gelson, who moved to Atlético Madrid. However he's not entirely finished his business with Sporting, as he's launching a bid to claim €3.2 million from the club for early termination of contract.
Gelson isn't the only player who's demanding compensation for having their contracts supposedly effectively terminated.
Daniel Podence, now at Olympiakos wants €800,000 and Rafael Leao, at Lille, would like €540,000 - in his case he's demanding part of the money for the breach of contract and part for moral damages.
