    Andy Carroll's Wage Deal at Reading

    Looking at Andy Carroll.

    Andy Carroll joined Liverpool in 2010, just turned 21 years of age, a top earner
    in the premier, to go with the 35m transfer fee, with Carroll reported to have
    been on 80,000 a week.
    The player joined West Ham United on loan, with a permanent transfer deal of
    15m in 2013, a record transfer deal for West Ham United, with a 6 year contract,
    with minimum wages matching his Liverpool salary.
    But injuries to Carroll meant he only had 62 league starts in 6 years.
    He signed for Newcastle United has a free agent in 2019, with a small reported
    guaranteed wage of 20,000 a week.

    Carroll now signed for championship club Reading on a 2 month deal, up to mid
    January 2022.
    Reading are on a transfer embargo due to breaching financial rules, so the club
    are on a strict limitation on squad salary .
    The EFL granted a budget of 1,000 a week salary for Carrolls wages, with the
    restrictions on the club.
    Andy Carroll accepted the the 1,000 a week salary, to get his career back on
    track.
    If Reading lose players in the January transfer window, thus dropping the clubs
    salaries, they may be able to increase Carrolls wages, but if Carroll can regain
    decent form, he could decide to go to another club.

    Not much to show for a 10+ year career except about 40,000,000

    Crazy isn't it. Then again there is a player in the NBA who is being paid $44 million this season alone who doesn't play. He is fit and healthy to play but the team don't want him to because they want to develop youngsters whilst losing (don't ask). He would put the losing side of that at risk. Oh and next season he will be getting $47 million for the same situation at this rate. He won't leave and give up some money (why should he) and nobody will take his contract on. That will be a cool $231 million dollar career and he will still only be 32 time that contract ends. Not bad work. Travels and watches the games on the bench, happy days.

    Free agent signed by a club not having a full squad, no rules broke.

    A bargain for them at 1 goal per week per 1K if he can keep it up 'till the end of January.
