What did you expect? He is joining them on a free, of course he will have signing up bonus which will be split and added into wages. We couldn't and shouldn't have matched it NOW of course as we are too late, should have extended his contract at least a season ago.People are mad that we signed Alexis to the ridiculous wages we did but are upset we didn’t pay up to keep Herrera.
Which way do people want it because you can’t pick both sides. £300k for a fringe starter
Look at what Evra said on the Sky interview with Neville. When a player starts thinking about United only for the money, that’s when they’re not fit to even be in the conversation to be a Red. Don’t get me wrong money is a big thing but United should never be used to start bidding wars or demand more than a players worth...if that’s the case, sayonara.
2 weeks back, "reports" claimed that he was getting 200k at PSG. Reports keep changing all the time. And different sources calculate the salaries differently. Some like to add all bonuses including the "if he gets a Ballon D'Or" kind of bonuses which is never gonna happen.Despite reports being that he's paid £300k???
I don't mind him getting 300k or don't mind if it was only money that motivated him to leave or the sorry state of the club and the football we play that motivated him to leave or it was a combination of all factors. After all a footballer has only one career and can't please everyone.He didn't want to stay and followed the money, there's nothing wrong with that but let's just accept it shall we?
He fits it perfectly. High energy, high pressing, quick passing.I hate that he's leaving, because I really like Herrera... but I have to say that if we assume the rumours of De Ligt, Wan-Bissaka and James etc. are true... he won't fit the model Ole wants in a year or two. I wanted him to stay, but we have to be ruthless, because our rivals will be.
He's a good player and i'm sad he's leaving but if its true he wanted £300,000k per week then its the right decision. He's almost 30 and while he may have been first choice under Ole it's not guaranteed as he's never been a nailed on starter in 5 years at the club.
People saying he is off he wage bill, he was on peanuts compared to some and now we have to pay a higher wage and a fee to get someone else and we still have, apart from Pogba an underwhelming midfield.It's not really hindsight. He was our POTY in 16/17 and deserved a contract extension, on the back of that season.
Exactly. He wanted to play for us. He would be on better money here, but their players won't be on too bad money there. Their good players get financially rewarded. He wanted to win things. I really don't begrudge him one last big contract.It's funny how they this is only an issue now. Not when a born and bred basque footballer basically forced his way out to move to United in the first place.
I wasn't questioning if he fits it now, I meant to question if he will 2 years time? It was rumoured to be a 4 year contract he's been offered at PSG & he has had almost constant injury niggles through his time here. I don't think he should have been the one let go, but perhaps we won't be renewing contracts like Rojo & Jones (again) with Ole as our permanent manager... I don't know.He fits it perfectly. High energy, high pressing, quick passing.
What does one have to do with the other? The two situations aren’t even remotely related. Unless Phil Jones was also looking for a massive pay increase, which I doubt.It’s just frustrating. We extend Jones and let Herrera go. It should really be the other way around.
Compared to what is left behind like Young , Lingard , Smalling , Jones , Rojo etc etc , he is.
