Gerard Hammered has been one of the big protagonists of the day of this Saturday after the FC Barcelona announced that the Catalan accessed to a significant discount of his annual wage like player of the first team that allowed to the Barcelona process the registration of three players (Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay and Rey Manaj) in LaLiga, just before the debut suspender belt of the Barça in front of the Real Sociedad.

"The FC Barcelona has been able to inscribe to Memphis, Eric Garcia and Rey Manaj in League of Football Professional. This fact has been possible thanks to the agreement reached with Gerard Hammered so that the second captain barcelonista recess significantly the wage", announced the club by means of a communiqué issued in his social networks. Now, some hours after the news, 'Sportive World' has desvelado new details of the operation.

The most important is that Gerard Hammered, unlike what has commented in the last weeks, will not extend his stay in the Camp Nou further of the 2024, when it wins his current agreement with the Barcelona (be 37 years old). This agreement signed it during the beginning of the past season, with Josep María Bartomeu in the presidency, and will not move under any circumstance.

It fits to remember that with this agreement already Hammered had accessed to go down his wage. In concrete, went to earn the same but in more years. Now, the situation is different because it has renounced absolutely to a percentage of his wage and also accepted to postpone another so much, but the most significant is the mount to the that has recessed the wage.

It is important to stand out that the only that helps to the Barça (or to any another team) to reduce his mass salarial (or, in this case, contribute to fulfil with the rule '1 to 4') is the discount salarial, no the postponement of the payments, in addition to the sales of the players. That is the big reason by which the club is so appreciated with his second captain, since -literally- allowed the registration of three of his mates. Now only lacking Sergio the 'Kun' Agüero.

On the other hand, 'MD' has confirmed besides that Piqué already has stamped his signature, during the morning of this Saturday, in the annex that has added to his agreement with the Barça. In the same, the player of 34 years engages , as mencionamo before, to recess an important percentage of his wage and postpone another. That is to say, the operation is more than enclosed.

I hammered, a 'model' for the rest of his mates

The true is that Gerard Hammered, very connoisseur of the impact that has had the economic crisis of the last years in the companies and teams (lives it with Kosmos Global Holding and the FC Andorra), has been nail the past year and east to help to the club to go out to 'float'. It is a decision that benefits in a big measure to the barcelonistas, that will start the season with almost all his stars, and therefore it did not doubt in aceptarolo. Always it was had.

Now, as it informed the Barça, remains to negotiate with the rest of captains: Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto. In the communiqué, the blaugrana signalled that "the Club follows working jointly with two of the four captains as they are Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba to arrive to an adecuación salarial to the situation that lives at present the entity. In this sense fits to stand out that the predisposition by part of both players is total and absolute".
