The Ravel Morrison saga, and unfortunately that is exactly what is has become, has taken another turn with reports in the national media that the teenager, demanded £30,000 a week.
The Mail reports: Ravel Morrison has stunned Manchester United by demanding £30,000 a week, despite the teenager making just three first-team appearances.
Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his exasperation with the talented but troubled 18-year-old, describing his demands as ‘unrealistic’.
Sportsmail understands United have offered Morrison £12,000 a week – an amazing salary for someone so young – and while the player has denied rejecting a new offer, there is now understood to be an impasse. It is not clear if the £30,000-aweek demand includes bonuses.
The idea, that Morrison is worth £30,000 a week is pretty ridiculous considering he’s yet to be anywhere near forcing his way into the first team.
Most United fans. myself included, have urged the club to stick by the youngster during his various misdemeanours such is his talent, but these latest demands, will surely make most Reds doubt the wisdom in even trying to keep hold of him.
In a few years time, theres no doubt Morrison will be earning more than £30,000 a week, should he keep himself on the straight and narrow, but to ask for that sort of wage now, is little short of insulting.
I’ve wondered whether it’s Morrison, his agent or a mixture of both behind his contract talks stalling and while the youngster has taken to twitter in the past to deny he’s even been offered a contract by United, these latest reports will cast more doubt on his United future, thats beginning to look all but over.
