Struggling Footballers Trapped by Inflated Contracts

Some of the most significant moves during the transfer window this summer are taking a very long time to be completed, and the primary reason for this is due to the size of the contracts that are involved. Which player is the most difficult to move and which of them are overpaid at this point in their careers? With that in mind, let’s take a look at the players that have bloated contracts, making them impossible to move during the transfer window this summer.

Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United managed to take a massive punt on the football player from Chile, a punt that has led to sailing wide and high into the crowd, with Alexis Sanchez not justifying his £350,000 wage per week, nevermind the bonus of £70,000 and plenty of other clauses that he is currently cashing in on. In today’s day and age, it’s difficult to imagine what performance would look like to justify that kind of income. Even in the world of football, it’s a bloated salary, which makes it impossible to move the player from Old Trafford.

Mesut Ozil

Arsenal fell extremely hard when they decided to sign Mesut Ozil into the team. After they landed, the team also dug a massive hole and covered themselves in the sand with this transfer. In 2018, Mesut Ozil signed a contract that gives him £350,000 every single week. However, he is rarely on the pitch in recent months and doesn’t do anything significant on the field when he gets the opportunity to play for Arsenal. How on earth can the club get out of this bizarre transfer with a salary that high, draining all the money from the club for nothing?

Neymar

When you look at all of Neymar’s problems, you would agree that his salary is far down on the list. His attitude towards teamwork and not arriving for training is pretty much his most significant problems. However, there would be plenty of football teams that would gladly take Neymar from PSG if the price tag was a bit more reasonable. Neymar currently makes £775,000 every week, and the only club that can match that salary is Barcelona. However, Barcelona will only pay £40 million for the player along with two other players to receive Neymar.

Gareth Bale

The footballer that managed to score in two finals of the Champions League has loads of reason to be annoyed at Real Madrid when it comes to his current treatment. He is unable to do anything right at the moment. There’s also a lack of integration within the dressing room, and his country is more focused on the bad instead of the good he has done at Bernabeu. However, in 2016, when he signed a £350,000 per week deal for the next six years, doesn’t help his situation at the moment. This is the main reason why Bale is still at Real Madrid. No one can take this player even though Real Madrid wants to get rid of him.
