Such is the money floating around the Premier League these days; even clubs outside of the top six can afford to pay high wages right throughout their squad.
While £1m a year barely reaches the radar in England these days, it’s still a significant sum of money to be earning.
Indeed, it’s the kind of money that will stop a smaller Spanish club in their tracks when looking at a loan player.
That’s what appears to have happened for Zaragoza and their interest in Wolves’ Rafa Mir.
El Periódico de Aragón claim the La Liga 2 club, who finished 15th in the league this season, are looking at bolstering their forward line.
Rafa Mir, who scored seven goals in 30 games on loan at Las Palmas this year, is one name on their list of targets.
However, his wages are complicating matters. The media outlet claims Mir earns £1m a year at Molineux, which equals around £20,000 a week… after tax.
That’s the kind of price that a club like Zaragoza can’t afford.
Mir is likely to be looking at his options this summer if there’s little opportunity for him back at Wolves. However, with his wages so relatively high, Zaragoza seems an unlikely destination at this point.
