Peruvian Paolo Guerrero Will Renew Contract with Hamburg


Katrina Heimark

Paolo Guerrero has a contract with Hamburg until June of 2010. According to El Comercio, he has asked the team for 5 million Euros as a renewal of his contract.

However, his team, Hamburg SV, is ready to pay just 3 million Euros. His team beat “Colonia” this past Sunday 3 to 1, with Guerrero scoring two of those goals.

He stated that “I am happy because of the two scored goals, but that is not the most important thing for me. What is important is the team’s success.”

He currently is the high-scorer of the Bundesliga. The difference between his requested salary and that proposed by his team will more than likely make the negotiations between the two very difficult.
