During the month of August were a lot of the rumours on the possible reduction of the wages of Sergio Busquets, Gerard Hammered or Jordi Alba, three of the captains of the FC Barcelona that, a year before, already had accessed to a diferimiento of his wages for the registration of Eric García and Memphis Depay. Joan Laporta gathered personally with the three footballers and his agents for tantear the possibility, but finish desisting to last hour.

Recently it has desvelado that, to pay to the three in the next year and half, the Barça has to disburse 200 million euros, of there the urgencies of the club in renegotiating with the three captains. In this moment, also were in the air the registration of the new signings, with Jules Koundé in the focus of attention. Finally, Joan Laporta and Ferran Olivé, treasurer of the club, saw forced to sign a personal guarantee that allowed the register of the central French, before the third day of LaLiga.

The case is that, as it has published 'SPORT' recently, the disappointment of the Barcelona president with the three footballers was capital. They explain that the feelings were very positive after the meetings of 'Jan' with the players, but to the hour to sign the new agreements and agreements "the representatives of the players denied to this".

And, in this point, go in the nuances. During the negotiations, had informed that Sergio Busquets was had to help to the club, but that did not want to renew his agreement further of 30 June 2023. The Barcelona posed the possibility that it differed -more- his wage, but in front of the refusal to extend his stay in the Spotify Camp Nou, did not find the formula so that it earned the money that subtracts of his current agreement. It did not deepen in the possibility of a definite cut of his income.

In the case of Gerard Hammered, with agreement until 2024, stood out in his moment that the central felt that there was not security in the term of the payments by part of the Barça. At the same time, it arrived to reveal that from LaLiga would not compute the saving of wages of the three captains like favourable margin in the 'fair play' financial, put the three already had appeared like heroes the past course. When it knew , the negotiations lost a lot of strength.

The captains, in the limbo?

Except Sergio Busquets, indisputable headline for the centre of the field of the Barça, the captains are living a bitter beginning of season. The central of 35 alone years has played 134 minutes in what it goes of course: 45' in front of Viktoria Plzen and other 90' in Cádiz. It has lost his condition to title indisputable, but could finish adding more opportunities to consequence of the injuries of Jules Koundé and Ronald Araújo. It is the third head office now and Xavi, knowingly that avecina a complicated calendar, will have to rotar.

With Jordi Alba the uncertainty is maximum, put the competition is double in his position. To day of today, Alejandro Balde and Marcos Alonso are by in front of him in the options of Xavi for the left side, by what it will be necessary to expect to see how many minutes achieves to add. The big load of parties can be, also, a possibility so that it go in in rotation with his mates.
