As you may well know by now, Kamil Grosicki wants out of West Bromwich Albion.
The forward has struggled for game time under both Slaven Bilic and Sam Allardyce, with a move back to Poland his preference.
Options in Germany and Turkey crept up late in the transfer window, but the forward decided to reject those in favour of Legia Warsaw, which he might be regretting.
That’s because his financial demands are proving very difficult for the Ekstraklasa club to meet, as Meczyki report on Friday.
They state ‘the more time passes, the more it seems the player’s financial requirements are too heavy a burden fo Legia to finalise a transfer’.
Basically, ‘there are simply too many obstacles to achieve a hit transfer to the conditions’ available in the league.
Earning £40k/week at West Brom, he ‘absolutely cannot count on similar money in Legia’, and while the option of a loan with the two sides splitting his salary could be an option, ‘what happens afterwards’.
While his ‘quality is unquestionable’, ‘the economic calculation must be reflected in reality’.
It appears Grosicki has no other option but to considerably lower his demands, because he’s otherwise stuck at the Hawthorns.
He doesn’t play, and if he really wants to feature in this summer’s Euros for his country, he needs to move.
The question is: what does he value more? Representing Poland or his comfortable wages at West Brom?
