The journalist Gerard Romero confirmed on his 'Jijantes' podcast that the FC Barcelona board met with Gerard Piqué on Wednesday night. The meeting in a restaurant had the objective of persuading the central defender to lower his salary again
Gerard Hammered knows that it does not explain for Xavi Hernández. After the arrivals of Andreas Christensen and Jules Koundé, the captain culé is now the fifth head office for the one of Terrassa, since so much Ronald Araújo is like Eric García are by in front his in the plans of the trainer. Even, it could be the sixth defender regarding head offices refers if it concretises the signing of Iñigo Martínez, another of the defensive aims of the club.
In this sense, the technician egarense was clear with Hammered from does a pair of months. His role in the 2022-23 will be residual, by which, in front of the urgency to inscribe to the reinforcements purchased in summer, the directive needs that the player of 35 years go down again his wage. According to the journalist Gerard Romero, a comitiva integrated by Joan Laporta, Mateu Alemany, Rafa Yuste and Arturo Channels (representative of Hammered) gathered the Wednesday at night with the defender to convince him of this.
The wage of Gerard has generated controversial in the last two seasons. Finalising the 2021, Hammered shared a capture in his corresponding social networks to 50% ingresado in this year like player of the Barça: 2.328.884 euros was the mount published by the defender in the capture, without greater specifications. In theory, the whole wage of the Catalan is of 10.5 'kilos' by season, which went down to 4.7M with the last discount accepted by the '3' in 2020.
Now, the club expects that I Hammered go down his index card to a mount near to the 2.5 million euros and, maybe, renew his agreement (culminates in 2024) as they did in January with Samuel Umtiti. Of this way, the club will be able to adjust his mass salarial to inscribe to the up to now six reinforcements of the summer (Kessié, Christensen, Pablo Tower, Raphinha, Lewandowski and Koundé), but this would not be the only discount that needs to apply the Barça in his payroll.
Busquets, the next in the list of discounts
As it advances 'SPORT', Sergio Busquets will be the next player to the that the directive will ask to go down, again, the wage. The midfield player culminates agreement in June of 2023 and bill in this moment 12.6 million net euros to the añor, after the readjustment applied during the pandemia. Originally, the one of Sabadell ingresaba 23 'kilos', five less than the original agreement signed by Hammered.
Of this way, Laporta expects the support of his captains to adjust the payroll culé for the 2022-23. Anyway, this discount is more a postponement of wage, since the club will have to pay the montos differed in the next three or four years. Likewise, the Barça expects that Frenkie of Jong follow suit going down the wage if it insists in remaining , although in the case of the Dutch the ideal would be traspasarle this same summer to free a contingent in the staff and, to his time, do, box.
