On February 5th, Legia.net reported Kamil Grosicki’s chance of joining of Legia Warsaw is ‘becoming more and more real’ before the window in Poland closes on February 24th.
It was also stated the West Bromwich Albion player had held talks with the Polish club’s owner, Dariusz Mioduski.
According to Meczyki.pl, Mioduski is ‘not involved in the negotiations’ to bring the winger back to the club. These matters are left to sporting director Radosław Kucharski and trainer Tomasz Kielbowicz.
The idea of bringing the Baggies attacker to the club has also been ‘accepted’ by Legia Warsaw manager Czesław Michniewicz, despite being ‘skeptical’ initially. He spoke to the Poland international on Thursday and came to the conclusion working together could benefit both parties.
Grosicki’s priority is to go to the Euros and his chances will improve if he features regularly in the second half of the season. This isn’t possible at the Premier League club, while a return to Legia Warsaw can help him fulfil it.
The website states the wideman would have the ‘status of a star’ in Warsaw and in the league.
He wants to return to his old club, Michniewicz’s side are interested in him and ‘everything’ is going in the right direction. In such cases, it could be concluded the deal is close.
However, it isn’t because of the financial hindrances and Legia Warsaw will need to find an agreement with Sam Allardyce’s side.
According to the report, the 32-year-old has received an offer from Saudi Arabia and a move there will see him earn a net salary of €1m. These figures are unimaginable to match for clubs in his country.
Grosicki isn’t tempted by the proposal from Saudi Arabia and wants to return to Legia Warsaw. He’s even willing to lower his demands to ‘sign a contract’ with them.
There’s an agreement in place between the two parties over several points and it’s now down to the club owner, Mioduski, to ‘pull out a calculator and look for money’.
Legia Warsaw are hoping West Brom can let him leave for free and also pay part of his salary until the end of the season. The English club are ready to come to an agreement for such a formula since it would help them save some money.
However, in an ideal scenario, West Brom would prefer the former Hull City man goes to Saudi Arabia as it will benefit them financially.
Meczyki.pl end their report by stating: ‘So many green lights have already been on. But there are some serious obstacles to get out of the way. If fans want to see Grosicki at Łazienkowska Street, they must be patient. Count on Mioduski’s generosity and the approval of WBA. There is still a long way to go to complete agreement.’
There’s still over two weeks left for Legia Warsaw to sign Grosicki.
