The English side could profit from the re-sale of their former player and also can exercise options to recall Jeffrey Bruma and Slobodan Rajkovic

With the future of Gokhan Tore still uncertain, Hamburg may be forced to pay a sizeable sum to Chelsea in the coming years.

The English giants have a 50 per cent stake in the sale of Tore, effective until the end of the player's current contract at HSV, according to Hamburger Morgenpost. This means that, should Hamburg sell the Turkey international before 2014, they will be forced to pay half the fee back to Chelsea.

Tore, a Koln native, has been linked with a move to his ancestors' homeland of Turkey in recent weeks and his agent recently revealed that he anticipates negotiations between his client and Galatasaray at season's end.

"We haven't entered official negotiations with Galatasaray, but we have good relations with their board. At the end of the season? Why not? But not now," agent Bektas Demirtas told Radyospor.

Hamburg signed several players, including Tore, Michael Mancienne, Jacopo Sala, Slobodan Rajkovic, and loanee Jeffrey Bruma, from Chelsea last summer and though the quintet came at a cut price, the agreement between the clubs contains several clauses.

Though Bruma had agreed to a two-year loan, Chelsea can recall him this summer, after just half the decided spell. Rajkovic, who was signed on a full transfer for €2 million, could also return to Stamford Bridge provided Chelsea exercise a buy-back clause that would see HSV recoup their initial investment.
