I think that salary was refuted a long while back and he is on something closer to 60/70k pw (still too much for a squad player mind). I think at the time of signing his signing-on fee was calculated into the weekly wage, bringing it closer to the figure you stated. Still an expensive flop, but the PL is littered with them, a recent example being Haller moving for 20m to Ajax having only signed 18 months ago for West Ham for 40m.

stop being so naive.

20 odd years ago 'free' transfer Sol Campbell was paid 60k a week to fit into the Arsenal wage structure.

However, as a free his agent negotiated a 10m bonus to be paid over the 5 year contract - so 40k extra a week.
He was therefore on 100k a week for 5 years.

Meyer will almost certainly be on similar - a standard wage and a bonus paid over the length of his contract.

That is why he has sat in the reserves and not asked for a transfer - no one else would pay him 50% of his current salary and he and his agent know that.

Likewise Palace can say his 'salary' is lower than amounts quoted.

Gone.
By mutual consent apparently.
Was never going to happen for him at Palace, nor in the Premier League. Too lightweight.

Excellent news.

Perhaps we've paid him a chunk of his remaining contract to go, perhaps he's just agreed to walk without demanding payment. Fair play to him if it's the latter.

I'm always amazed how Parish can sit there on matchday cool as you like, watching money go down the toilet and not have a heart attack.

Remember he intimately knows to the penny every extravagant demand from each player and their agent, each bonus, loyalty payment, signing-fee etc...

He's now also looking at 30m Benteke and 27m Sakho walking out the door for no return.

I wouldn't be able to do it.

Well it opens up a spot in the squad let's hope they fill it wisely.

the latter is unlikely lets face it - he is more likely to have his contract paid off completely after zero interest for taking him on loan or (ha ha) buying him - maybe 10%-20% of his future wages knocked off is about the best to hope for as he should get another contract in Germany for 6 months and then cash in again with a signing on fee in the summer

What it shows is that you can sustain PL with a lower wage bill - as we have been doing fine (ie comfortable survival) without Meyer, Sakho and to a lesser extent Benteke, who contributes, and must be on a lower wage now

but only if your recruitment is stellar - and no one can be right all the time

it just seems that the higher the wage the more Palace get it wrong

Still good news though - Agreed!

I guess you are paying 25 salaries and only 11 can start so there is always that logic of over paying - but just too much of that money at Palace is on the bench or in the physio room

I suppose he's used to it by now, and probably sees it as inevitable really.

Not sure Ron Noades would have been quite so sanguine about it all!

The monthly lifeline draw. Thank you for everyone for paying five minutes of Max Meyer's wages this month.

I am disappointed, that Max never really got time on the field he deserved. Being subbed or pulled off, never gave him the chance to excel. Sometimes I wonder if Woy makes
the decisions from a higher authority. Its possible Max didnt come over well off the pitch, but there have been and still are worse players still in the club.
Look at Patrick Bamford now, another bad decision to let him go, albeit he was a bit of a princess initially so, good luck Max.
