xFC Barcelona wants to resume talks with Frenkie de Jong for his salary reduction, as an extreme measure given the fact that the Dutchman does not want to leave the Spotify Camp Nou
The FC Barcelona has more urgencies of which expected in the previous of the beginning of LaLiga Santander 2022-2023. The blaugrana still have not been able to process the registration of his five new signings and two renewed, by which -to day of today- could not be present in the debut in the competition, this Saturday in front of the Ray Vallecano in the Spotify Camp Nou (21:00 CEST).
It is thus that from the dispatches of the club will try to exhaust all the possible roads to recess the mass salarial in the next hours. it is working The cut/diferimiento of the wages of Gerard Hammered and Sergio Busquets, but the focus is in a Frenkie of Jong that is being protagonist of the market of signings estival and, especially, of a pressure 'brutal' by part of the club so that it do his cases or access to renegotiate his agreement.
The aim of the club is that his case resolve as soon as possible. They understand that it will be very difficult that leave (there is agreement with Chelsea or Manchester United) and will insist in his discount salarial. Frenkie Is one of the players that accepted in 2020 the diferimiento of his wage to help to the club in the middle of the first year of pandemia and from the 2022-2023 corresponds him a substantial increase of his income.
As it has informed the newspaper 'SPORT', the Barça will insist in that it does not have how pay the wage that corresponds him and will ask that it go down his index card to the half. And it is that, this year, to Frenkie corresponds him earn 18 million alone euros regarding his fixed wage, more other 2,88 'kilos' by bonus of fidelity. To what it would be necessary to follow him adding in case that they fulfil objective (% of parties contested, titles...).
To understand the reason of the high wage of Of Jong from this season, it is necessary to remember that when it landed in the City Condal, in 2019, agreed an annual wage of 14M, but in this same season accessed to earn only 13,2M, por three 'kilos' in the middle of the pandemia (20-21) and other nine in the 2021-22. The board of Josep María Bartomeu renewed him two years more to pay these 16M to which renounced.
This wants to say that Frenkie achieved to have an ascending wage from this year to earn the mount slope (as well as I Hammered, Ter Stegen, Lenglet...). The one of this year, for example, is of 18 millions: 14M of his wage and 4M slopes. In the following (23-24), will have a record wage of 27,7M between fixed and variables. The Barça understands that it is a figure inasumible and therefore it wants to negotiate and reduce his index card the maximum possible.
And if it does not accept the discount?
It is not a secret for anybody that, up to now, Frenkie of Jong has showed against of a cut of his emolumentos, by two reasons: it understands that between 2020 and 2022 already it did a big effort and that now corresponds him earn what deserves and, second, considers that if the club has to spend more than 150 million euros in the market of signings, also have to have them to pay him what establishes his agreement.
It is the footballer the one who has the last word, to final of accounts, but in the Barça do not see it viable. 'SPORT' Has explained that from the managerial have communicated him that they can not pay this wage, by what insist in that it renounce to 50% (in the case of Busquets, for example, speaks of a diferimiento). If it does not accept, they will follow presionando so that it do his cases, with destination to the Premier League.
So much Chelsea like the Manchester United are attentive to his situation and recently the blaugrana ultimaron the details with the picture 'blue'. In any case, at all has effect until Frenkie of Jong of green light... And for now it follows convinced that it wants to remain in the Barcelona group. It will be all a challenge that his position change at all.
