We told earlier how Richarlison, through the hands of coach Givanildo de Oliveira, began his career at América-MG. The column now gained access to the record of its first professional contract with the Minas Gerais club, documented in the Mineira Federation, in the amount of R$ 800.00.
In this exclusive video, watch the board of directors of América – already chaired by Alencar da Silveira Jr at that time – celebrating in a restaurant in BH the classification for Série A, in 2015. Richarlison appears shyly, next to the euphoric physical trainer Régis, who sentences: “This boy here has a future”.
Coach Givanildo is also there.
We are talking about the year 2015. That is, seven years later, Richarlison is earning, according to the British newspaper The Sun, a weekly salary of 134 thousand pounds at Tottenham (ING).
This represents £535,000 per month (about R$3.5 million per month at current prices).
Translating all this, Richarlison earns the equivalent of R$ 116 thousand per day of work in England. Or BRL 4,800 per hour. Want to know more? His salary is equivalent to R$ 80 per minute. This means that those R$ 800 from the beginning of his career in America can be earned in just 10 minutes.
The Brazilian national team star is only the fifth highest paid player at Tottenham, behind Harry Kane, Son, Perisic and Romero.
The striker arrived at the London club in the last transfer window for a stratospheric value: 60 million pounds. He has been at Everton since 2018.
