Lots to consider with this

What wages would he want £40k a week? Even though wages are possibly not his priority £40k is a big drop from £200k when it seems
other parties are interested,
I assume if we paid this it would break our wage structure which could cause unrest in the squad
If as reported we have a budjet which is half of the next lowest, can we afford to pay that money without breaking our spending limit.
I’m not sure £40k a week would break our wage structure now. It’s still only 2/3 the average PL wage.

Does he want any wages? He just wants to play so he can go to the World Cup.
Of course he does, everyone wants money, his living expenses will be high, and a drop of £160k a week will certainly have an effect even to a rich man.

OK I assumed we were still below that level, but would he play for £40k a week?
Why not? Inter paid him the remainder of his contract right? He's already been paid the 200k+ a week. That's why game time + environment are the only real two factors to consider

But we are half the next lowest budget so average doesn't apply.

For a six month contract he will play for nothing just to get himself back out there

We’ve probably got a fair number on £5k or less which brings the total down a long way. Players like Toney and Ajer would not be here now if they weren’t on a lot more than that.

How much do you reckon we’d need to pay Johnson to play for us if we were willing to shell out £16m+? No way he’d take less than £30k a week if valued that high to buy.

Surely from earning zero to 40k would be ok just hope we can afford this amount would be like 5 million for a 18 month deal.i think other player's should be ok as he will improve team and help other players improve but I guess the other players are on nowhere near 40k a week?

Jesus. I understand why you're asking the question but what a question to be asking. The money in football really does make me feel quite poorly. Just obscene greed. Not Christian, just in general. :sick:

I have no idea where CE will go but I do know what is better value for betting purposes. Brentford to beat Liverpool at 12/1 or CE next club Brentford 5/1
Struggling to find anywhere with a market for this! Where can I check odds please?

It's not going to be a six month contract, the WC isn't until December. 18 months I would anticipate as the length.

6 months gets him back on the pitch playing, it doesn’t have to be at Brentford for the whole time up to the world cup

6 months with the option of a further year makes the most sense, don’t want him to come in and then go in the summer if he starts playing really well for us.

For Brentford but not necessarily for him, I’d be happy with six months no option, he might just decide he wants to stay anyway.

I wouldn’t get out of bed for £40k a week. Chicken feed. :fishing:
The feeling of paying every couple of weeks for another nurse for “are NHS” would surely make it worthwhile?

I don't really see any negatives to this.

I can't really see him wanting an insane amount of money, he gets to play in London, and a fellow Dane is coach. I said earlier in the thread and will say it again: If he is even 75 percent of what he was, he is still better than most midfielders in the Prem.

I hope it happens.

Hold on, I thought his contract was paid up because his condition prevents him playing in Serie A,?
He’s wedged up to the back knackers and has choice if he has the hunger and can be bothered. He won’t go back to Spurs, likewise he can’t join Arsenal, if he’s a mercenary he’ll go to Newcastle but if he really wants to prove himself again at a club that cares its BFC all day long

20% chance of Brentford signing Christian Eriksen - I like this reality I woke up in during May last year.....

If you paid him 100k a week then it is 7.8 million over 18 months plus bonuses.
You are not paying a transfer fee as he is a free agent.
Not a bad deal for club and player.

I suspect a few players would be knocking on the door to discuss their contracts if that happened.

Are we sure his Inter contract was paid up, or is this just GPG wishful thinking? Only things I can find online say it was terminated.

Would be illegal just to terminate a contract without some kind of settlement I imagine.
