No way are our wages down. Shifted Rooney, Klasseen, Miralles, Williams and Mori and got in Mina, Gomez, Digne, Bernard, Zouma and Richarlison. I expect Bernard is on 100+ and the 3 barca boys wont be far off
Even with Lookman coming back and Bernard on a reported £200k, that would only be around a 600k pw increase on our new recruits.
With Rooney, Klaassen, Robles, Funes Mori, Williams, Mirallas, Garbutt off the wage bill that would pretty much balance it; Rooney was £150k if I recall correctly, Williams £80k I think, Klaassen would’ve been £60k plus, even Garbutt when he signed his contract renewal is on a fair wedge (or unfair, really)
If we got Sandro’s wage off, we would be in the black in that department.
Also, if rumours are to be believed, Silva and Brands are earning far less than Koeman, Allardyce, and Walsh.
