Consadole lost heavily due to the pandemic and took into account the possibility of selling Chanathip Songkrasin to stabilize the team’s financial position.
According to SMM Sport, the Consadole Club lost 140 million yen this season. Because the J1 League was delayed. In this context, the Japanese team is considering cutting player salaries.
Besides, they also consider selling some stars to stabilize the financial situation of the team. And Chanathip Songkrasin may be one of the names on this list. Chanathip is said that’s one of the biggest stars at the Consadole right now.
This is because Chanathip is currently one of the highest paid players on the team with an income of about 5,900 USD for week. Besides, the Consadole can also earn large sums of money if it sells Chanathip. The Thai player is currently valued at up to $ 2.6 million on the transfer market.
For Chanathip, the midfielder has also recently revealed his ability to move to Europe to play football. In an interview on Football108, “Messi Jay” said: “If I leave, I will definitely fight for the opportunity to play football in Europe. However, it is a story of the distant future now, I still have a contract in Japan.”
However, according to SMM Sport, this may just be the last solution of the Consadole. The Japanese team is currently looking for other solutions to solve financial difficulties. For example, they ask for more sponsorship from businesses, fans or from the support of the Japan Football Association.
Tournaments in Japan are expected to return in June and there will be no relegation team. However, this plan may completely change, depending on the disease situation in this country.
J1 League has just played a round before being suspended by the epidemic. In the first match, Chanadip’s Consadole fell 2-4 against Kashiwa Reysol.
