In today’s Off-the-Pitch stories Dana talked about the latest reports about Frank Lampard’s honorable action. She also mentioned James Rodriguez’ transfer as well as Ter Stegen’s probable transfer to Bayern.
Frank Lampard – A role model for the team
As you may know, Due to the financial crisis caused by Coronavirus, “Chelsea” was negotiating with the players to reduce their salaries. There is talk of cutting some interest from wages during the crisis, i.e., for at least the next 4 months.
According to the recommendation of the Premier League, at first, the London club offered to reduce their salary by 30%.
The players, on whose behalf the captain of the team Cesar Azpilicueta is taking part in the negotiations, agreed unanimously, but only at 10%.
Frank Lampard has already agreed to cut 25% of his salary. The coaching staff also plans to do the same. They seem to be trying to set an example for the players in this way.
James Rodriguez is no longer the target of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Currently, as you probably know, James Rodriguez has been leased to Bayern Munich. However, his contract expires in 2021, and that’s why Real Madrid plan to sell him.
Manchester United have wanted to add Rodriguez since 2014, but their involvement in the transfer fight is not expected at this stage. His focus is now on the transfer of Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
On the other hand, Arsenal and Everton are interested in the 28-year-old Colombian. Apparently, they are the ones who will fight to capture the star of Real Madrid.
Bayern are no longer interested in Ter Stegen.
According to recent reports, the “Rekordmeister” have been closely monitoring the ongoing negotiations between Ter Stegen and “Barcelona” for a new contract.
It was reported that the Munich side were even going to disrupt the talks. Their goal was to sign Ter Stegen as Manuel Neuer’s replacement.
However, according to Sport, “Bayern” have already started negotiations with Manuel Neuer for a new contract, which means that the transfer of Ter Stegen will no longer be considered.
