The situation of Alberth Elis and Boavista is striking. His purchase, made at almost $ 1 million, sounds like a joke when compared to the figure in which the Houston Dynamo signed him in December 2016. The Honduran, who at that time played for Monterrey in Mexico and was one of the figures, arrived in the United States for millions of dollars.
The figure for which the Houston Dynamo paid him was almost $ 5 million, so the investment they made for the player was lost with his sale to Boavista de Portugal. The Portuguese club paid a figure close to $ 1 million dollars, leaving a difference of almost $ 4 million in losses for the Major League Soccer team.
That's why the Houston Dynamo's business with Elis is so bad. In addition, according to Portuguese and American sources, the player's salary is much lower than what he received in the United States, so it is not very clear why the Honduran player left MLS to go to Portuguese football for much less money.
