The Greek sports media indicate that Berbatov will receive from PAOK almost 2 million euro, namely 1.6 million net and additional 600,000 euro in the form of bonuses for targets achieved. "Including taxes, PAOK will secure for the Bulgarian striker the whopping amount of 4 million euro!" stresses the sports website
