The day after the constraints imposed by the DNCG – supervision of the wage bill and the allowances for transfers to the budget presented by the club – the Girondins received, this Wednesday, an offer from Wolverhampton for Hwang Ui-Jo. According to our information, it would amount to nearly €3 million. From a source close to the Bordeaux club, it was deemed dismissed. Negotiations between the two clubs continue as the South Korean international has never hidden his desire to play in the Premier League one day. In the event of a positive outcome, he could end up with the wolves fellow son Hee-chan Hwang.
Three years after his signing from Gamba Osaka, the departure of Hwang Ui-jo would not be neutral for Bordeaux finances: the Girondins are obliged to sell before buying. Their payroll is now more than €5 million compared to the budget presented to the DNCG. Hwang Ui-jo’s emoluments are presented at nearly €2 million gross per year. He only has one year left on his contract.
