Raiola in Paris to seal De Ligt move to PSG

Talk of him getting 340k a week at 19 years old If that's true then I'm glad we dropped out of the race. We were willing to go above what Barca offered so say the rumours and offer him 225k a week. However 340k for a 19 year old CB is absolutely mental. That would set yet another truly horrible precedent at the club.

Absolutely incredible deal for the lad though can't be denied. But does seem like a bit of a waste going there. They couldn't even beat us ffs and we are crap.

I would seriously question any player who would turn down Barca to play in a 3rd rate league, irrespective of the salary.
----------------------
seriously? doubling your salary, yes its already crazy money but sorry no player in the world is turning down 350k when the other offer is 170-180(if that's true) its the reason why so many players jumped to china in the last 4-5 years, as much as fans like to romanticize the barce's , madrids juves, etc the main concern to a player is money
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't personally think there's anything particularly romantic about accepting circa 9m a year salary to play for a massive team. Especially when you know that salary is only likely to increase (as long as you play well).

There will always be players that will just take the money (China being a great example of this) but surely they're not all like that?

If this is in any way accurate I'd argue quite a few of the Barca players could earn more elsewhere:

It's been widely reported that Barça have the largest wage bill in worlld football.

Suprised they are higher than us, considering hapless Ed authorised the Sanchez deal.

80% of their turnover apparently. We spend 55% on ours.

Goes to show though that their club aren't interested in huge profits. They want success. The way a football club should be ran.

Mino Raiola on Matthijs de Ligt to PSG: "This is the classic example of fake news. Photo of me and French journalist in Paris? He asked me to take a picture together, but I did not know who this gentleman was, I have never spoken with him."

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

There's no-one to pay the profits to. No 'shareholders' in the traditional sense. Same at Madrid.

.......................

You think we should pay ridiculous wages just to match Barca?

I don't think that is the way to run a football club at all.

I know what your reply to that will be, so I will point you to the current CL winners to save you the effort..
