Rangers: Alfredo Morelos contract update emerges

Rangers: Alfredo Morelos contract update emerges -Rangers News

Rangers remain in talks with Alfredo Morelos over a new contract, according to Rangers Review

The lowdown

The Northern Echo’s Scott Wilson reported on Monday that Rangers may consider listening to offers for Morelos this summer.

That’s because he’s entered the final of his contract, and they’re ‘adamant’ that they won’t lose him on a free transfer.

Wilson claimed that talks over an extension had ‘stalled’ at the end of last season, and that succession plans were already being drawn up.

The top striker target if Morelos does go is said to be Sunderland’s Ross Stewart.

The latest

Journalist Jonny McFarlane writes that Rangers are still holding discussions with Morelos behind-the-scenes and trying to prevent any details from leaking out.

The Gers may have ‘watched’ Stewart, but they do not see him as a direct replacement for Morelos, contrary to Wilson’s report.

The verdict

The Athletic’s Jordan Campbell recently reported that Morelos ‘may be open to prolonging his stay as long as the terms are not prohibitive for Rangers’.

Morelos is already thought to take home £33,000 per week, putting him at the top of Rangers’ earning list, and he may expect a further boost to that salary, so you can see why the negotiation is unlikely to be straightforward.

Is Ross Stewart a good replacement for Alfredo Morelos?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Stewart, for reference, is apparently on as little as £2,700 p/w following his £300,000 move to Sunderland in January 2021.

In an ideal world, perhaps 26-goal frontman Stewart could support Morelos, furnishing Van Bronckhorst with some enviable squad depth.
