The Blue Links: August 5th, 2016

Sporting Kansas City made a very large bid for a Ligue 1 winger and was turned down, Feilhaber has found his form, and Kevin Oliveira named to the 20 Under 20 list.

The summer transfer window has come and gone. Unfortunately Sporting KC was unable to lock down a big signing. But the team is in good form at the moment and I think they can continue this to close out the season.

I'm just trying to bring some of you back from the abyss, okay? Anyway.. onto the links!

Sporting KC made HUGE offer to Ligue 1 winger.. and was rejected

Romain Alessandrini, winger for Marseille, refused offer from Kansas City

  • According to this report, Sporting KC had offered Alessandrini a salary of €1.5 million AND the club agreed to pay another €2.5 million that was requested by Marseille to release the player.
  • That means SKC was willing to pay about 6.1 million DOLLARS for him over two years.
  • Annual salary of about $1.7 million would have made him the highest paid player on SKC, more than doubling Espinoza's salary.
