Report: Trouble brewing at Rangers as attacker makes demands after another wants to quit
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is seeking a wage increase on his current deal with the Scottish Premier League outfit after the club refused a number of offers from China during the transfer window, according to a report.
The Daily Mail says that following weeks of speculation as multiple bids came in for the 13-goal attacker from Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe, the player’s representatives are now keen on hurrying up talks for the Colombian.
Contract negotiations were always planned with Rangers’ director of football Mark Allen following the closure of the window but now the striker’s agents want to hold them sooner rather than later.
As it stands, Morelos is reportedly one of the Gers first team’s lowest-paid stars, currently earning less than £7,000-per-week.
The 21-year-old was left on the bench as an unused subtitute during the Scottish Cup 3-0 win over Fraserburgh on Wedensday night after manager Graeme Murty admitted that his leading marksman had been left ‘confused’ by the speculation.
Rangers are keen to keep hold of Morelos and the boss urged his forward to continue his fine form for the remainder of the season in order to see his worth increase all the more.
Worryingly for supporters of the club, there is still a chance that their forward could still face an exit from Glasgow as the Chinese league window does not close until the end of this month.
This comes after Football Insider exclusively revealed that Josh Windass told the club he wants to leave Ibrox after they failed to give him a new deal in January.
