Max Meyer has joined Crystal Palace after his contract with Schalke expired. The 22 years old player was a regular first team player for the German side for the last 5 years but last April he criticized the club sporting director and he didn’t play anymore until the end of the contract.
Meyer was for a long time a target of some top teams, including Arsenal, but this behavior made those teams to look at him with other eyes. His agent also said many times that Meyer is a world class player and that he has the earn a salary around 8M euros a year. With the time running out, and still without club, it was clear that amount was nothing but a dream but accordingly to the news he will receive around 4M euros a year.
For Crystal Palace this is no doubt a good risk to take. Meyer is indeed a very talented player and even with this high salary, they can make a huge profit in one or two years if everything goes in the right way.
