Agent of ex-Liverpool, Leeds star Kewell wants incentive-based deal

Australian national team star Harry Kewell is continuing to be linked with a move to the A-League.

The former Leeds United, Liverpool and man is out of contract after finishing his contract with Turkish club Galatasray and his name is being mentioned in the same sentence as the likes of Melbourne Victory, Sydney FC and Newcastle Jets.

Kewell is attracting some interest from newly-promoted Premier League club QPR but his agent, Bernie Mandic, has proposed a deal which could see the 32-year old return to Australia to finish his playing career.

Mandic sent a letter to the Sydney Morning Herald suggesting an incentive-based agreement which would see him earn more if the club he happens to sign with does well from a revenue viewpoint.

"To avoid any ambiguity, if Harry comes back to Australia, the deal will be a simple one - Harry would be paid a percentage of any additional revenue over and above what the club received in the previous season," wrote Mandic.

"In other words, zero financial risk for the clubs. If there are no extra bums on seats and no other additional revenues, Harry gets no money.

"The clubs that have contacted us know this and so does the senior management of FFA."
