There were players who still chose fame over money.
Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 14th (Korean time), “Wilfred Zaha has given up being a teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo after rejecting a huge salary offer from Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr.”
The Saudi league has recently embarked on a large-scale investment by acquiring clubs in its own league centered on sovereign wealth funds. Having first acquired Ronaldo with a huge salary, they are moving quickly in the transfer market this summer.메이저사이트
First, the Saudi league actively promoted the recruitment of Lionel Messi, but the player himself refused and headed to Inter Miami of the American Major League Soccer (MLS).
Messi missed out, but Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad made a big impact when they signed Ronaldo’s close friend and Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema.
Following Ronaldo-Benzema, Saudi Arabia is seeking to recruit several star players and coaches. N’Golo Kante and manager Maximiliano Allegri have been mentioned.
Like Dan Messi, there are players who reject Saudi Arabia’s huge salary offer. Zaha, who was evaluated as a top-class winger as the ace of Crystal Palace, also refused an annual salary.
The Daily Mail explained, “Zhaha rejected Al Nasr, who was looking for a recruit to create Ronaldo’s reinforcements. They promised an annual salary of 45 million pounds (about 72.1 billion won), but Zaha refused.”
The media said, “The salary he wants is good, but he wants to achieve his dream that he couldn’t achieve.
“Jaha rejects Al Nasr and dreams of joining Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) or Atletico Madrid. He wants fame more than money,” he emphasized.
Meanwhile, Jaha rejected the renewal of the contract with Crystal Palace and is likely to move to free agency. Attention is focusing on where Ronaldo and his next destination will be after refusing money.
