Speculation in today's papers is claiming that the dreaded contract "release clause" could come back to haunt us again this summer, with Morten Gamst Pedersen set for a Blackburn Rovers exit as a result.
Last summer, due to such a release clause written into Craig Bellamy's contract we had to let him leave for Liverpool in a £6 million deal, today the Dailly Mirror (of course with it being the Mirror it must be true LOL!) are claiming that Gamst Pedersen (who signed a new four-year contract last summer to fend off interest from Tottenham Hotspur) has such a clause written into his contract, an £8 million release clause.
It is being suggested that part of the arrangement that saw Gamst Pedersen double his £10,000 per week wages last summer, when signing the four-year deal also included having the dreaded release clause written into it. Manchester United are believed to be preparing a summer bid to trigger this release by offering Rovers that amount. They would also offer a healthy signing on fee and MUCH higher wages.
So the question is do we really think MGP has such a release clause, but more to the point will he still be a Rover for the season 2007-2008 season? If it is true that he has such a clause no matter how much Rovers want to keep him and how much we think we could or should get more than £8 million, that amount would see him become a Manchetser United player, if of course he wanted to, which if we are honest would he really say no?
