Sami Mokbel of the DM (who has great ITK game) reckons Arsenal are prepared to offer Alexis and Ozil 20% pay increases to stay at the club. When I first read it, the article didn’t make much sense, because 20% on 140k is nowhere near the £300k a week those boys are asking us for. I think what the article is trying to say is the club are going to offer the players £250kish a week, with a 20% payrise if they achieve CL status next season.
Not sure that’ll be cutting it, but who knows. Sounds a little too much like effort in a world of big wages.
Now, I can imagine Alexis might be worth £300k a week… Ozil? Not so much. Think he’d struggle to pull £250k a week at another club. You can’t have someone raking in that much cash who goes missing in the big games.
JUST MY OPINION OK?
Anyway, not much to report on today BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO THE PODCAST.
