It couldn’t get more ridiculous than this: Manchester United cannot afford Patrick Vieira because he is a luxury that even the most famous football club can’t afford! The guy earns anywhere between £100,000 and £130,000 a week and the city is not able to pay him about £2 million. The guy is one of the best in business and has been around for quite some time. The 33 year old has a lot of experience but is a luxury that the city can’t afford.
Hence, £100,000 and £130,000 a week-worth Patrick Vieira may not get the extension to stay on for one more year. In fact, it is more likely that Patrick would end his career by retiring. It is of course quite a funny thing to learn that a player could be so expensive and luxurious that even a city like Manchester can’t afford!
However, one must consider all the revenue earned through football and also all the tickets that are sold in the name of the footballer, and that would certainly make up for a great compensation to the high price paid by Manchester United for the player. There are also other options for the club.
