I think I predicted this in another thread. they used to earn much more in Iran but not anymore. Sarmayeh Bank club doesn't exist anymore and no other club can pay big considering the current economic situation in Iran. beside that there will be a rule next year limiting the number of NT players per team. even if one or two clubs can pay better they can't hire all big players because of this.
Thanks for the answer! I wasn't aware Sarmayeh had closed down. Is Seyed staying in Iran?
