Well if you thought this summer was already a fairly weird one then it's about to take one more step in the zany direction after it has been revealed that Rovers have been sending out a document showing players wage breakdowns.
The players in question are the ones which Rovers are trying to actively sell - Keith Andrews, Vince Grella, Niko Kalinic and El Hadji Diouf are all featured.
The document has been sent around to clubs across Europe in an attempt to facilitate their sale.
The Daily Mirror have been quick off the mark in reporting the next in a wacky line of sales techniques. It seems we have a document to go alongside the Owen Hargreaves You Tube videos and the Michael Owen brochure.
The Mirror is reporting - 'The Indian owners Venkys are looking to slash £125,000-a-week from the payroll in a purge of the dressing room they inherited when they took over.
Mirror Sport has a copy of the sales brochure from Indian negotiator Krish Naidoo who has advised foreign agents and clubs to contact him.
The no-holds-barred document lists the salaries of the Rovers men, their appearance bonuses, signing-on fees, increases they are due and percentages to former clubs.
It is an attempt to hurry up exits to help bring in cash for new faces in a major turn-around after a slow summer of movement at Ewood Park.
Keith Andrews is on £21,000-a-week and an extra £2,000 for every game (good grief!). His wages also increase every time he plays five Premier League games - and an annual extra payment of £26,667.
MK Dons, who sold the Republic of Ireland international, are also entitled to 10 per cent of any profit over his purchase price of £1million.
Vince Grella is on a cool £30,000-a-week with a further £6,000 a game (Well at least we save cash with that clause). Blackburn are asking for a £500,000 loan fee if he goes - and all of his salary paid.
El Hadji Diouf - told he is unwanted by Kean - is also on £30,000 a week and a further £5,000 per game. West Ham would like to take him on loan but the demand is for his pay to be made in full to Rovers.
Even Nikola Kalinic is on the list. He is about to join Dnipro and is on the flat rate of £30,000 a week.'
I need a shower after reading that.
