Several Blackburn Rovers stars have had full details of their pay deals splashed all over the papers after a secret sale document was leaked.http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/08082011/ ... eaked.html
The Daily Mirror obtained a copy of a sale brochure produced by Indian negotiator Krish Naidoo that was put together to try and help the club offload El Hadji Diouf, Keith Andrews, Vince Grella and Nikola Kalinic.
The quartet of big earners are all up for grabs as Blackburn's Indian owners try to slash their wage bill by £500,000 a month, and the details of the players' deals make for fascinating reading.
Volatile midfielder Diouf - once dubbed "the most hated man in football" - earns £30,000 a week, with an extra £5,000 every time he takes part in a match. The player has already been told he is surplus to requirements at Ewood Park, with West Ham keen to take him but Rovers insist that the Hammers must cover his entire wage bill if he is to leave on loan.
The club are demanding a £500,000 loan fee should anyone want Australian international Grella, who is on £30,000 a week plus £6,000 for every match he plays.
Andrews, meanwhile, is on £21,000 plus £2,000 for every appearance - but his incredible contract guarantees him a pay rise after every five matches, as well as handing him an annual extra payment of £26,667. Should Rovers sell the Irish international, his former club MK Dons will be entitled to a 10 per cent cut of any fee over £1m.
Croatian striker Kalinic, meanwhile, is struggling to make ends meet on a flat rate of £30,000 a week. No wonder he is in the process of trying to complete a £6m move to Ukrainian side Dnipro.
