QPR and Bosingwa in contract standoff
Queens Park Rangers are keen to offload for Chelsea right-back Jose Bosingwa, to the point that Harry Redknapp will let the Portuguese leave on a free transfer, but the Daily Mail has reported that Bosingwa will not depart the Premier League strugglers without his contract paid up first.
If Bosingwa was paid the full amount remaining on his contract then he would receive a sum in the region of £8m, with the Champions League winner on a weekly wage of £65,000 for the next two-and-a-half years.
Bosingwa’s wage packet is expected to scare off any potential buyers but the player has no future under Redknapp after refusing to be named as a substitute against Fulham in December. He was fined two weeks wages as a result and has not played for Rangers since, while his teammates have no time for the 30-year-old either, having tired of his attitude, the newspaper adds.
Signed in the summer on a free transfer by former manager Mark Hughes, Bosingwa joined QPR after four years with Chelsea, where he played more than 100 games and won the FA Cup twice and the Premier League and Champions League once.
