£100,000 A Week - Scott Parker: April Fool Or What
Google language translator
If you believe everything you read in the newspapers then you must believe that Mark Hughes is willing to offer West Ham midfielder, Scott Parker a staggering £100,000 a week.
Tuesday 6 January 2009 edition of the Daily Mirror published the following...
The move is certain to raise questions among Manchester City's already disgruntled and de-motivated playing staff.
Yet just four days after bumping up Chelsea reserve left-back Wayne Bridge's wages from £70,000 a week to £90,000 at Eastlands, City chiefs are ready to do the same again with Parker.
City, the world's richest club, are already in meltdown, having crashed out of the FA Cup to lowly Nottingham Forest, the Carling Cup to Brighton and struggling in the Premier League. But they are sending prices and wages through the roof during this transfer window.
Parker is on a £55,000-a-week deal at Upton Park after joining the Hammers from Newcastle in June 2007 for £7million. West Ham now want £15m for him - £5m more than City want to pay...
Notice the date, 06/01/09. Can someone tell me, does April comes before January, as the above article, courtesy of the Daily Mirror must be an April fool?
Should Manchester City pay a transfer fee, somewhere in the region of £15million and should the club be offering someone with limited talent, £100,000 a week? I doubt it.
Let's hope Sparky and the rest of his negotiating team can find someone far better than a 28-year-old who's hoping to bolster his pension fund.
