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.Unless I missed something, I got your question/point? How do you ensure they are independent? It's two separate negotiations. One between club and player and one between player and Nike.
Would rather you did explain it now haha
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.
