Well there might be a wage policy with up front or guaranteed bonuses to reflect cheap acquisition costs, but that would mean any "club wage scale" would be largely a fictional one.
Both the accounting numbers and the practical management approach would be to average any bonuses across the contract lifetime.

It is a nice idea that players get a wage according to their contribution - But only an ideal, not practice.  No more real in football than any other business.  When your boss tells you "according to our wage scale this is what people in your role are getting" they aren't genuinely telling the truth.  

Do you really think agent's and players turn down big pay rises and see out their contracts just for the benefit of the buying club and not for their own benefit?

😅 Classic Droy. 

Supply and demand is all that matters. 

If you want a player, regardless of fee, you'll pay the going rate wage-wise.

 It’s not like we paid a £45m fee for him. 

We almost did though. He saved us by being injured and failing his original medical. His price had dropped considerably when he turned up for another medical the following season.

RLC and Kante injured, didn’t play.

RLC Injured and Jorginho suspended, didn’t play 

And even if three players got injured, say Kovacic, Mount and RLC were out, Lamps would probably play Kante and Jorginho in a 4-2-3-1, with Pulisic, Willian and CHO ahead of them.

Are you arguing for or against him? .......:).

Yes - supply and demand (and quality of product) is all that matters in determining price..
No, price is not just wages - it is fee, agent fee, wages, bonuses,  less a guess at any option value if a contract is extended or player sold.  Clubs are not stupid.
