Your joking... for Clubs Like Real, Barca that would be considered low money wise, Not saying that Real or Barca would sign him.There are other clubs in Spain that could pay that, and remember life is cheaper out there, so something like 80/80 euros a week would be like getting the 120k a week here
But that's the point. who said that he would be demanding that sort of money...?
So a year down the line D.S. leaves on a free never to play football again because no team will pay him the 120K p.w. he wants...? Yeah like that will happen
He would have to sign a contract with a new club and agree wages with them (terms), But that should not be our concern
You're thinking about it the wrong way
He's guaranteed 6m for the next season here..
So he takes that and runs it down (probably still backing himself to earn a new deal because he may be settled and enjoy life at the club) next summer if he doesn't then he's a free and there will be demand for him no doubt about it with no fee or wage to match from a buying club.
He will then be in a position to get a signing fee to cover the short fall in wages as the new club wouldn't have to pay a transfer fee
If he moved this summer hypothetically then his options are small, if he moves next summer then they are far far larger
As for the Spanish clubs... you know how their tv deals etc work over there? The clubs are free to sort them direct themselves and therefore beyond Barca and real (and then a drop off to Atleti) the rest get relative peanuts. For example Valencia have the 4th highest and they pay their players on average 35k a week. Beyond them it's an even bigger drop off
So no he couldn't go to Spain and earn 80 plus.. he would likely be dropping two thirds of his wage now if he left to go there. Add that to the fee we would ask then he wouldn't get a signing fee to balance it
Sturridge won't retire next summer there is no doubt about that and he will be in far far better position to either have had a good season here and earn a new deal or be in a bargaining position on a free to get a deal that suits him
Forget this summer it makes no sense to him
