Tuesday’s edition of L’Equipe has a look at footballer’s salaries in Ligue 1. The big stories will centre around what Neymar and his teammates pick up at PSG (with the Brazilian on €3m a month), but there’s a few players in the French first division being subsidised by English clubs.
Sunderland pay out a total of €140k per month over two players, and Stoke City continue to pay €150k a month to Giannelli Imbula.
Wolves are also in the picture having loaned Prince Oniangué to Angers.
The 29 year old is being paid €52k a month according to the French newspaper, with Wolves picking up €26k of that.
It’s not a huge figure for Wolves, and certainly not as painful as what other clubs have been talked into, but it’s something they won’t want to continue beyond the end of the season.
With Prince Oniangué having a contract with Wolves until June 2020 it could be hard to find a permanent transfer which would both bring in a reasonable fee and see the player’s salary go, unless he voluntarily takes a pay cut.
