Fans stunned after finding out how much Malang Sarr is on at Chelsea

Fans stunned after finding out how much Malang Sarr is on at Chelsea

Malang Sarr has made just eight Premier League appearances for Chelsea.

Chelsea fans have been left stunned after learning of the wages Malang Sarr is currently earning at the club.

The 24-year-old signed for the Blues from Nice in 2020, penning a five-year contract. He was then loaned out to Porto for the 2020/21 season where Chelsea won the Champions League, featuring 19 times in all competitions for the Portuguese outfit.

Sarr returned to Chelsea the following season and featured eight times in the Premier League, as well as playing in the cup competitions and Champions League.

He was also a substitute in the Club World Cup final but spent last season back in Ligue One on loan at Monaco.

Chelsea are desperate to shift him this summer, with the Evening Standard stating that the player has not even had a single conversation with new boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The report claims that fellow unwanted players Romelu Lukaku and Callum Hudson-Odoi are in the same predicament.

However, at the bottom of the story, writer Nizaar Kinsella said that Sarr "is struggling to attract offers" due to his £100,00-a-week wages.

Sarr likely isn't anywhere near the top bracket of earners at Chelsea given the recent splurge on new signings but there was mass disbelief over his £5.2 million-per-year pay packet.

One fan wrote: "WE GAVE HIM HOW MUCH!!!!! My ass thought he was on 50K."

A second concurred: "The old board were on something else to offer him that much a week."

A third user said: "How will you give Sarr 100k? For what?"

A fourth added: "Someone needs to show me this Chelsea wage bill because who the hell is he???"

Another laughed: "This is why the players are running to Chelsea. How is he on 100k a week."

A final fan was staggered, commenting: "How much? Who gave him that contract?"

Sarr had been linked to Strasbourg but he will almost definitely have to take a serious pay cut in order to seal a transfer away.
