The Sun says Bothroyd wants a staggering £65,000 a WEEK to sign for QPR.
The England striker, 28, is available on a Bosman after running down his contract at Cardiff.
He met R's boss Neil Warnock again yesterday to discuss a switch.
The newly-promoted Hoops baulked at the frontman's initial request for a pay packet of £65,000 a week - over £3million a year.
But Warnock hopes they can reach a compromise.
