On the one hand, Fulham are thrilled Rodrigo Muniz is suddenly scoring. On the other, they face a dilemma over what to do with Armando Broja, the striker who joined on loan from Chelsea on deadline day.

Fulham’s agreement with Chelsea is unusual in that the more matches Broja starts, the less he will cost. 

Fulham are covering his wages whatever happens but Mail Sport understands they will not have to pay the full £4million fee if the Albanian (right), 22, starts 60 per cent of their games — a threshold which can only be met if he lines up in nine of their remaining 14 Premier League fixtures, after starting this win over Bournemouth on the bench.

Described as a ‘pay-as-you-don’t-play’ deal, Chelsea agreed to this abnormal set-up because they want Broja playing and scoring, so they can get close to their £50m valuation if they sell him in the summer. As a homegrown asset, he would represent pure profit. Yet Muniz, 22, is complicating this masterplan.

The Brazilian, who signed for Fulham from Flamengo in 2021 and spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough, had never scored in the Premier League.
