Talking of obscene salaries, completely out of tune with reality…
Michael Mancienne has signed for Hamburg on £40k a week. ~£2m a year.
He is 23 years aold. He was with Chelsea since he was 8. He is a good centre back, and play in the Makalele role as well (which he did for Wolves). He opnly played 20 games last season as he picked up a knee injury.
Like I said, he is a good defender, and could hack it in the PL – although not world class as the top teams require. Now he’s off to a big German club for big money.
But £40k a week for Mancienne…?
