Manly captain Daly Cherry-Evans says he is willing to cut his monthly salary by $5 million if it will help the Sea Eagles get through its latest salary cap crisis.
“I’m more than happy to take a 5% pay cut if it will help the club out a bit,” Cherry-Evans told the media this afternoon.
“I’ll even sell off several of my larger chateaus if it will help balance the books – but I don’t think Manly has an issue so it shouldn’t come to that.”
The generous offer to downsize his contract and fire some of his less valuable servants could be welcome news to Manly, who up until recently were chasing the signature of Todd Carney.
“It was nice of Daly to offer but the truth is we would need him to do more than sack a few slaves to get us out of the shit,” a spokesperson for Manly told us.
“He would have to agree to let go of his entire share portfolio and allow us to lease back Brookvale Oval from him – the guy pretty much owns owns every bit of our collateral.”
The NRL says it will likely push ahead with its salary cap investigation unless Daly Cherry-Evans decides to purchase the investigation as an investment, then it will likely be dropped.
