Morning Mix: Arsenal target “not worth” £7.5 million per year, Chelsea fans meltdown, Richarlison overpriced



A top German pundit believes former Schalke midfielder Max Meyer’s greed is preventing him from finding a new club.

Sky Germany’s Schalke reporter Dirk Grosse Schlarmann has hit out at the 22-year-old and his agent, saying that the Arsenal and Liverpool target’s demands are unrealistic.

“Meyer has one problem – he has a completely wrong self-assessment”, he told Sky Sports.

“Everybody around him – his agent, Roger Wittmann, his family, the coaches of the youth teams – told him that he is one of the biggest talents, the ‘German Messi’ and after a while, you believe that.

“Wittmann hopes some English club will have so much money to spend that they are willing to give him this salary. For me, he is not worth €8m a year as of now but you never know with the market.”

“He wanted the club to respect him like other former players – Leon Goretzka, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, (Leroy) Sane – and he wanted to get more money and more influence of the team, but the club did not react as Meyer wanted.

“His agent told everyone that Meyer is world class, he has to earn about €8m (£7.5m) per year and he is able to play only for the best clubs in the world. But now they have to recognise that the top clubs do not think that they are right with their opinion.”

Ouch!
