And it was this sort of low value, unhelpful, verbose and not in the slightest informative posting that got you into trouble previously. . Please remember to throw in a 'smash them their (sic) shit' occasionally to ensure that at least some of your posts are fully appreciated.the
It's often tripartite. That's how it's set up under the PL players' contract (paragraph 4 is a useful starting point). https://www.premierleague.com/publications The standard form PL players' contract can be found at p305 onwards of the PL Handbook.
The Club enters into an agreement with the Player regarding the Player's image rights (both those within the UK and (separately) those outside of it). The general rule is that it can account for 20% of a player's income but Mbappé would be an exceptional case allowing that % to be significantly exceeded.
How much those image rights are valued requires parallel considerations of the value of the Player's 3rd party endorsements. Hence with his main sponsors the contractual agreements regarding exploitation of the player's image are often a tripartite agreement between Club, Player and Sponsor. All perfectly legitimate.
Edit: it appears emoticons don't show up on my post on phone - for the avoidance of misunderstanding, I am *joking* - it is great to have your input back here (especially on contract stuff). Pls keep it up (and try ignore any baiting/petty arguments).
