Linköping offers Cristiane 2009 contract, Umeå negotiates with Marta

With rich European clubs like Lyon and the new American professional league WPS stepping on the scene, the competition for top footballers is definitely stronger for the 2009 season than it has been for 2008. Unconfirmed rumours says that Marta and Cristiane has been asking for USD 400,000 a year to play in WPS. But that doesn't discourage Swedish clubs.

Linköping reveals that they have given Cristiane a contract offer for the 2009 season. Linköping's chairman Christer Mård says that he believes that he has a good chance: "If she comes back, she knows what she comes back to. And she enjoyed a lot playing here".

At the same time, it is rumoured that three different WPS clubs are also talking to Cristiane. And the big Brazilian club Corinthians female side has secured a sponsor, that offers Cristiane a monthly salary of about SEK 95,000 if she plays for the club.

Umeå IK has started negotiations with Marta's agent Fabiano Farah. Umeå's sport director Britta Åkerlund says that Marta is their top priority, "but there is of course a limit. The competition is growing and it will probably take more than last year to keep her". Manager Andrée Jeglertz says that he hopes and believes that Marta will stay, "not the least because of the high quality of football we have here".

Marta's contract with Umeå finishes after November and several clubs have announced their interest to talk to her. The strongest bidders are probably clubs in the WPS league. Fabiano Farah says that he is expecting a big proposal from the American side: "All the big owners in the league wants her. Their visions is to have Marta as the new poster name for the league. They're trying to put together a proposal for a long term contract".

Is that about what you expected Rich? Being the Backham of the WPS, I thought she would get at least half a million. It will be interesting to see how average salaries compare to the Damallsvenskan, Toppserien, etc.

It's the USA & women's sports so who knows how much they will consider the importance of Marta's arrival to the WPS.

Still tons of interest in Euro for Marta where they are growing the women's game in a more organized & smaller footprint.

Could it be a development vs $ decision for her?

Interesting times for the women's game on both fronts don't you think?

Bonsoir CoachRich

Bonsoir Vic

Je crois que Marta et Cristiane le méritent bien toutes les deux. Ce sont deux joueuses extraordinaires. Lotta Schelin, a signé récemment avec l'Olympique Lyonnais: les rumeurs disent un contrat pour deux années de 1,5 million de couronnes suédoises (??? en dollars US ???)


Combien de $$$$ donnera le WPS St. Louis club pour Lotta Schelin ????

Tous ses montants ne sont rien à comparer les contrats millionnaires des joueurs masculins.

Your math is bad. First, Schelin is making $250,000 CDN a year. And second, her contract costs the club another $150,000 CDN to buy from Göteborg.

She is one of the reasons I thought Marta was good for at least a half million. Although I personally would rather have Schelin up front than Marta.

Merci pour toutes ses informations

C'est gentil de partager.

Je suis heureuse. Car combien d'excellentes joueuses n'avaient pas un sou dans le passé. Je suis tellement heureuse de savoir que maintenant les meilleures parmi les femmes gagneront des salaires décents.

Un autre point qui peut devenir important chez nous les femmes: l'appartenance affective à une équipe. Il ne faut pas négliger que chez les filles le sens de la famille au sein d'une équipe de soccer compte beaucoup. Une autre brésilienne, Dianela en parle brièvement dans un reportage de la télévision Suédoise:


Si Marta aime sa vie actuelle en Suède. Si elle a développé des liens affectifs , je doute qu'elle parte pour les USA....en tout cas elle va y penser à plusieurs reprises avant de prendre une décision.

J'ai apprise que Cristiane a apprise à parler la langue Suédoise, qu'elle aime une personne là bas (liaison amoureuse). Pour une fille ceci a beaucoup de poids dans des décisions futures.
