Crazybola.com – Generally, many clubs have financial problems due to the corona virus pandemic which has made many players have their salaries cut, but Jesus Corona is determined to ask for a salary increase to be willing to renew his contract.
Jesus Corona’s future at FC Porto is in big question mark as he looks set to leave the club in January 2022 or next summer as there is no agreement between the two parties for new contract talks.
According to reports todofichajes, The Mexico international midfielder currently earns only IDR 27 billion per year with his contract expiring in the summer of 2022, and he is asking for a nearly fourfold increase in salary to IDR 101 billion per year to be willing to renew his contract.
Given the high salary demands of the 28-year-old player, FC Porto is reportedly not willing to fulfill it and if possible, they will be open to selling in the January 2022 transfer market later.
In fact, this high salary demand could actually complicate the future of Jesus Corona himself, not only about his future at a Portuguese club, but could also hinder his opportunity to join an elite European club, even if he is available on a free transfer later.
This is because reports stated that Sevilla and AC Milan had been interested in signing him during the last summer, but they then backed out when they learned that the Mexican midfielder was demanding a high fee of IDR 101 billion per year.
So Jesus Corona seems to have to lower his salary demands if he wants to get a contract from an elite European club because, with the exception of English clubs, a fee of IDR 101 billion would be too heavy for any club especially in the midst of the current corona problem. Moreover, the 27-year-old player also does not have a big name to make a top club ready to pay a high price.
