Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji sung has been a major disappointment for QPR this season. He was called as the best buy of the summer by QPR owner Tony Fernandes. He was acquired for £ 2 million from Manchester United. Despite playing in the Premier league for several seasons now, Ji sung Park has failed to establish himself as one of the important players at QPR. The club has also been relegated from the Premier league after just two seasons in the top flight. Due to the astronomical wage bill of the club, there’s a real danger of QPR going into the Portsmouth situation.
Hence, there is expected to be mass departure from Loftus Road in the summer and Park Ji sung is expected to be one of them. He is one of the players on a huge contract, which is estimated to be in the region of £ 70,000 per week. This would be simply unsustainable in the Championship. Tony Fernandes, though, has said that manager Harry Redknapp wants to retain some of the good players for next season in the hope of bouncing straight back up. However, Park Ji sung is not expected to be one among them and he is the top of the transfer target of several MLS clubs.
The 32-year-old has a huge fan following in Asia, and it is thought that MLS clubs are interested in the possibility of increasing their revenue through shirt sales in Asia. Toronto FC, who are currently managed by former QPR defender Ryan Nelsen, are expected to be one of the club’s interested in his services. Nelson played with Park Ji sung for a couple of months at Loftus Road before retiring from football to take on the managerial job in January. The South Korean has won all the major English titles with Manchester United.
