This is what I proposed, except I'm expecting he can command 6-7, to begin with, so I'd offer him a full 8mil, AGAIN ONLY FOR THE 1 YEAR.
We need to be prepared, can't expect Semin to wait, and should be prepared to go this far.
If he's getting long term 7mil per, this probably isn't enough, even 9mil for 1 yr, not enough.
But if he's offered like 5.5-6m per for only 2-3 years, then maybe checking out 8-9 for 1 year might do it.
