QPR owner Tony Fernandes is set to axe his highest earners in a bid to reduce his wage bill, according to The Mirror.

Players such as Chris Samba, Loic Remy, Ji-Sung Park and Julio Cesar head the list in what is to be a big summer clear out.

Cesar has been linked with a move back to Italy with AC Milan the most suitable destination whilst Remy has been linked once again with north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal.

Fernandes told The Mirror: “Players will go regardless of if we stay up or go down. We want players who can give a lot for a long time.”

Although they are meant to be their biggest assets, the clubs poor league performance has underlined the fact that they need to pay lower wages to better players who can keep them in the division as a minimal target.

Harry Redknapp blasted several players including Jose Bosingwa when he first joined the club for being over paid and since then, they haven't proved him wrong.

Even if they avoid relegation, they are set to sell a lot of players on and bring in players expecting lower wages and putting in bigger performances. Some of their players are not good enough to be paid around £80k-a-week like many in the top six teams. If they were flying high in the division then their deals would be explicable.

Whatever happens in their fight to avoid the drop, QPR will be making several changes to the squad both in and out.

Do you believe they need to sell players on such as Julio Cesar and Chris Samba - two of their best players? Or should they carry on and build the team around them despite their high wages? After all they have a lot of money at the helm so why not?
