West Brom are reportedly set to offer Tottenham target Saido Berahino a new contract, while Cristiano Ronaldo was apparently the subject of a £110million bid from PSG over the summer.
BERAHINO TO BE OFFERED NEW WEST BROM DEAL
Less than a week after saying he would never play for Jeremy Peace again, Saido Berahino is set to be offered a new contract by West Brom, according to the Daily Mail.
Peace refused to sell Berahino to Tottenham during the transfer window despite the England Under-21 striker putting in a transfer request, with the north London club’s proposed staged payments irking the Albion chairman.
Now the Mail has backed up the Sunday People in claiming West Brom will offer to more than double Berahino’s current salary to up to £50,000 a week in a bid to mend the broken relationship between player and club.
The Midlands club will also include a buyout clause of around £25million, it is stated, but certain terms – far more favourable than those offered by Spurs – would have to met for Albion to release the 22-year-old.
PSG FAILED WITH RONALDO APPROACH
Paris Saint-Germain failed with a £110million offer for Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo over the summer, according to Portuguese news outlet Globo Esporte.
Manchester United were also linked with Ronaldo over the summer, although he was not one of the players Real president Florentino Perez claimed the Premier League club had shown an interest in, but Real are said to have immediately knocked back the approach from PSG.
The French champions’ offer would have seen Ronaldo reclaim his title as the world’s most expensive player if accepted, but Real were not willing to lose their star man.
PSG, however, are apparently expected to reignite their interest in a year’s time.
