Newcastle Offer Mitrovic Incentive-Based Compensation


One reason we think Newcastle are extremely close to wrapping up a deal for Aleksandar Mitrovic, is that the details of the deal are being reported in the Belgium press – and they are really intricate low-level details.

Aleksandar Mitrovic

Aleksandar Mitrovic – could earn £40K/week

We reported earlier today that Newcastle will pay €16.5M (£11.7M) for the player, and of that fee his former club Partizan get 20% of the Anderlecht profits on the player.

Anderlecht paid €5M for him two years ago, so their profit is €11.5M so Partizan will get €2.3M.

Mitrovic’s wages are being reported in Belgium to be a base of €2.3M/year which is around £1.63M – about £31.3K/week.

But he also getting incentive payments of €23.5K (£16.7K) for each win and €11.7K (£8.3K) for each draw.

In our best season in the last 11 years back in 2011-2012 we had 19 wins and 8 draws (65 points), so in a good season Aleksandar would get an extra €446K for the wins and €93.6K for the draws.

That would be an extra €539.6K (£383.1K) in total so he’d get £2.013M – that’s about £38.7K/week – and  £7K/week in bonuses.

I think those calculations are accurate …..

That’s in a good year, but around £40K/week is not too bad for a 20 year-old.

That compares with Fab Coloccini’s £60K/week he gets unconditionally as Newcastle’s top paid player – which is just over £3M/year.

Maybe Colo will be sold this summer if we get two top center-backs into the club?

Comments welcome.

    You could’nt make it up.
    Think about it mate. If you score goals you win or draw – hence the bonus. On the other hand you can score 1or 2 or more and lose. Best keep it simple eh !

    I’d be surprised if there is no sales. They will be just holding off selling until they can bring in as many season tickets as possible. They have alot of convincing to do.

    Im sure the Toon have told interested clubs it will be next month for any departures.

    One thing with Ashley, if he is spending alot of dosh he will be making it aswell. For Mike Ashley to spend 40-60 mil and not make anything I’d pass out.

    That would mean he is actually building something on what we have.

    Just what is going on with this deal with Mitrovic? How could it go on so long? He has had time and so has his family. Are we penny pinching? And where is Austin?

    I remember a long time ago, Llambias saying NUFC did not do bonus/incentive payments like this. He stated that when Ashley bought the club, players like Obafemi Martins had goal bonus’s etc and would just shoot all the time and Ashley made it a policy not to have such incentives.

    I could be misremembering the interview or perhaps things have changed.

    And news recently that Porto matched our bid but there has been no movement from them – not like he suddenly rocked up there for a medical etc so perhaps we are still in pole position for this one

    Just hope there is no Demba Ba-type release clause in the contract IF we are to get this guy. Dont want to go through that drama every transfer window again.

    Personally not so sure about Austin being a consistent player and thus worth £15m. But 15 goals a year would satisfy me – still not sure he can deliver!

    Toon @ 6

    I think it has appeared to have gone on so long more because of the players family than either the two clubs or his agent.

    His club had said some time ago that they had accepted our bid. His agent had also confirmed it. His family had been in Newcastle well over a week ago.

    Slim I would say, I never believe them just post the news as I find it. Hope it is true however.

    Seems that McClaren is ready to cut the first one loose, though it could be just because he is injured.

    be great if we are gonna get him and mbemba in a joint deal worth more money (however saving money in the long run of this window)

    I honestly think we will be missing a trick if we choose not to pursue mbemba he just crys out to me that he will be a beast in the prem. Actually I think both anderelect players are made for this league which is why am praying there is some validity in this.

    there has been that many lies from the media and some from legit sources like sky that are telling false information that it will be hard for anyone to believe anyone from the media from now on !

    until it happens its not worth getting our hopes up and tbf if the media cant get it right with all their links and contacts then i think the safe approach is not to believe anyone else unless its a lucky guess.

    Youcouldntmaekitup,

    I apologise if anyone thinks am accusing. I am seriously not its just am sick of so called fans taking advantage of mine and many other’s emotions by building our hopes up with false rumours.

    However if mitrovic comes through then firebug will be the first man i thank for giving me the first heads up confirmation.
