The ‘Ronaldo Rule’ is a rule that Manchester United is known to introduce earlier this month, and sets a wage ceiling. The intention is to prevent a large wage gap between players because some players receive too high salaries and ruin the team atmosphere. Manchester United has set a policy that does not exceed 200,000 pounds (302 million won) a week.
This wage cap system is also in place in Naples. Things are a little different with Man United. Napoli seems to be an unavoidable choice due to the club’s financial limitations rather than the collapse of the team atmosphere.
The salary cap for a player set by Napoli is 4 million euros (5.3 billion won). And the annual salary of the entire team was limited to 80 million euros (107.7 billion won). 메이저놀이터
It is a situation where the victim has no choice but to come out. A representative player is Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski. He has been playing for Napoli since 2016 and is a member of the Polish national team. Currently he is suffering from Napoli’s ‘Ronaldo Rule’.
Poland’s ‘sport.pl’ reported on the 1st (Korean time) the situation in which Zielinski, a member of the Polish national team, is currently in crisis.
The media said, “Currently, Zielinski is being forced to cut his salary by Naples. Zielinski is in a position that he cannot agree on this policy. He firmly opposes it. If it goes like this, the two sides may not be able to reach an agreement. He may be leaving Naples this summer.”
The media continued, “Zielinski fell victim to Napoli’s new policy. According to the new rules, the maximum annual salary a player can receive is 4 million euros. Currently, Zielinski earns a little more than 4 million euros. Napoli We are pushing for a renewal of the contract, but they are forcing us to cut the annual salary below 3.5 million euros (4.6 billion won). If Zielinski does not agree, it can be sold in the summer. There are more players who can suffer this damage.”
After mentioning the scapegoat for the ‘Ronaldo Rule’, the media mentioned Kim Min-jae’s name. At the same time, he emphasized, “Kim Min-jae is being treated completely differently.” This is an introduction to a representative player who is in a different situation from the victims.
He added, “Kim Min-jae will of course be in demand in the summer transfer market. But Napoli wants Kim Min-jae to stay.”
In other words, it means that the ‘Ronaldo Rule’ can be broken for Kim Min-jae. Manchester United also cannot catch a key player like Marcus Rashford if they stick to the Ronaldo rule. Therefore, it is known that an exception is made for Rashford. Same with Naples. To catch Kim Min-jae, a salary increase is inevitable.
Currently, Kim Min-jae is known to be receiving about 2.5 million euros (3.3 billion won) from Naples. And recently, local media reported that Napoli would propose an annual salary increase of more than double to renew the contract with Kim Min-jae. If that happens, Kim Min-jae’s annual salary will be 5 million euros (6.7 billion won), and the ‘Ronaldo rule’ will be broken. Napoli wants to catch Kim Min-jae even while breaking the rules.
