350k a week? Wasn't it expected to be much more than that? Guess the up-front money is a lot less without Raiola too.

Nah, think that is the salary but there is a ‘consultancy’ fee which will take his contract up to mooted 500k, shady bastards.

Think De Bruyne is on something similar (wages and consultancy).

His official wages will probably be something like that, just a bit lower than De Bruyne's official wages. The real wages will be double that amount ...

Mancini's consultancy wages were higher than his wages for being Man City manager.

It'll propably be soon reported as £250k/w although earlier when he took the 'tour' with Raiola their wage demands were though to be somewhere between £500k-£800k/w.

£350k/week NET might be close actually.

Manchester City have announced the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. It is believed the 21-year-old goal sensation has been picked up for a bargain £51million, around £13m cheaper than the £64m release fee that has been widely touted.

The Blues have announced that they have come to a deal with Bundesliga side Dortmund and that Haaland will join them on July 1. And it turned out that the release fee was €60m, which works out at around £51m.

The addition of agents' fees and bonuses is thought to take the total outlay to around £86m, again much less than the £100m figure which has been discussed. Haaland is expected to join the top earners’ bracket at City, alongside Kevin De Bruyne on around £400,000-a-week.

I see in the rumour mill that Villa want £50m for Watkins, and West Ham are wanting him.  Looks like the crazy money is back, if he goes for that much (also makes the same figure for Haaland look even  more like a bargain).

Do you not see how Haaland for £50 million is going to be infinitely more expensive than Watkins for £50 million?

I can't imagine Watkins demanding £350k a week nor can I see his dad and agent wanting to share £60 million between them.

I like Watkins but he's far more limited than the media credit him as being.

Jesus. He only needs to cast his eyes a few miles North to see how that can wreck a career. It's not even like a Gerrard where committing your career to a club means you'll win less trophies, this would mean he'd win virtually no trophies, maybe at a push a league or FA Cup.

He'd be stupid to sign anything beyond a 2 year extension.

Why would De Bruyne need a pay raise? He's getting the same off the books money that Haaland will get.

City will pretend that their salaries are similar.

How exactly is he getting £300k of the books


I don’t believe City’s figures on Haaland but the rest of the books , I’d be interested how as it means there must be loads more players like De Bryune  get paid huge sums off the books

Are you being dense on purpose? Literally everyone knows that Man City cook the books and pay managers and players off the books via consultancies or other "titles" so they can stay "compliant" with the PL rules.

Mancini has already admitted this previously. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-6366745/Man-City-secretly-paid-Roberto-Mancini-double-contracted-wage.html

If you think they stopped doing this - good for you.

Just interested exactly how , as I’ve said I didn’t believe the Haaland figures and the figures required to pay players half of players wages of the books would be hundreds of millions .

Salaries for playing football are accounted for in FFP. They're then paid for roles that involve around 3 days work a year that's worth as much as their football salary, doing promotion work for the UAE. They're not accounted for in FFP.

BTW, does Alf own a football club yet? Would he like to?

Essentially Mancini was employed as Man City manager by them as a company and receiving a wage. He was also employed as a Sporting Consultant by the Government of Abu Dhabi, for which he received a separate wage, totally unrelated to his City contract apparently.

Interesting  stuff  , still seems a lot to pay half their wages of the books which would be hundreds of millions if all players getting the same deal and wouldn’t they have to to keep them all happy.

The entire package (transfer fee, agent fee, signing-on fee, wages) will cost Man City a bit over £300 million over 5 years. They can afford it, but it doesn't means it is good business ...
