Celtic’s January transfer target and former player Victor Wanyama’s wage has been revealed and the midfielder looks to be earning a mouthwatering $3 million at his new club Montreal Impact.
This was most likely why alleged talks between Celtic and Wanyama broke down in January.
When roughly converted into pounds it would be around £48,000 per week and if any player at Celtic is ever on that kind of wage it should be Odsonne Edouard.
Celtic’s high earners just now are players like Forrest and Jullien, who both are rumoured to be on a respectable £25,000 per week, and our captain Scott Brown who should be on around £30-35,000 per week.
Lennon made the right choice not to pursue Wanyama as Celtic have plenty of midfielders to choose from and it might have caused distress within the squad, especially if a new player is on double the wage that of another player who have been loyal at the club most of their playing career.
