In a move that has taken the football world by surprise, Mikayil Faye, formerly of Kustošija, has made a significant leap to Barcelona.
Dubbed the 'Monster from Kustošija' by the English media, Faye's transfer has been a topic of widespread discussion and admiration.
Faye's transfer from the Zagreb-based second division club to Barcelona was not only unexpected but also came with a staggering 400 million euro release clause. Kustošija is set to earn five million euros from this deal, paid in three installments. The contract includes an array of incredible bonuses, promising Kustošija 20% of Faye's next transfer fee and one million euros for every set of seven games where Faye plays at least 45 minutes, potentially earning Kustošija up to ten million euros.
The 19-year-old Faye is already on his way to securing these bonuses for Kustošija. His impressive defensive skills and smart plays for Barcelona B, under the guidance of coach Rafael Marquez, are being widely shared and praised on social media.
In a recent match against Cornella, Faye executed a unique move during a free kick, lifting his leg backward and catching the ball with his hand, leading to a teammate's strike that was saved by the Cornella goalkeeper. This unexpected maneuver has left fans and commentators alike in awe, with many stating, "No one expected this from Mikayil Faye."
