VfL Wolfsburg actually wants to extend Omar Marmoush's expiring contract. But the striker's demands are tough.
About two weeks ago it became known that Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach had their eye on Omar Marmous. The Egyptian not only played a decent half-series at VfL Wolfsburg, but would also be available on a free transfer in the summer due to his working paper expiring.
As the kicker reports, an extension at VfL is "a long way off". Discussions about whereabouts have been started, but the ideas of both parties seem too different. The trade journal reports that Marmoush is demanding an annual salary of four million euros if it is extended! This would make the 23-year-old one of the top earners in the Autostadt.
As if that weren't enough, there should also be a bonus of six million euros, which would be divided between him and his consulting agency. Even if his performances may be quite appealing: With only two goals in 15 Bundesliga games, the demand seems to be quite high - hardly imaginable that he would get such sums in Dortmund or Mönchengladbach.
In the Premier League alone, where FC Brentford is said to have expressed an interest, such references seem to be more feasible.
