That team has the best scorer of the Super Lig this season, who is linked with top European clubs. They will make millions when they sell that forward - probably at least 10 m. They could easily give him 2x to 2.5x what he makes in Montreal and in Euros. Now he can stay but he is not gonna play much at all, just occasional 10 minutes at the end to defend... Eventually 500k on the bench will be too much so the team will be looking to offload him anyway. So just a matter of time before he leaves. As for ZBG, if the interest from Besiktas is serious, he should be looking to leave right after the Gold Cup, thats millions of dollars. I would say 2-3 mil. You can not play with that if you are Montreal and struggle to make money. Better for his career, Turkey is a great place to get better... if you play. Edit: According to Transfermarket, the top goal scorer of 22 goals, a year ago was valued at 110k, a year later his value? 9.35 mil. Potato is not the smartest guy, but he would be stupid not to jump on the opportunity for someone who whine publicly about not making enough money.
