Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona 2022-2023 will have a 'expensive' different. The intention of the culés, after doing big efforts to achieve to the players that so much had asked Xavi Hernández, is that it occur a complete revolution this year that it allow to the team compete by the titles. It is the big aim and foresees that they will take decisions that will not like to all the world with the aim of 'benefit' to the club.

The defensive fragility was one of the factors that more concerned to the staff technical of the Barça the past course. Even when the team was inspired ofensivamente, one or two errors derived in goals against. The intention is that this year there is not space for this and that the team was a 'wall' in the low zone of the field. The signing of Jules Koundé is the big proof of this.

On the way they will have big sacrificed and Gerard Hammered could be one of them. During the night of the Wednesday trascended that the second Barcelona captain had kept a meeting with his agent and the directors of the club. The subject of the discount salarial was the strong dish of the meeting, put from the dispatches of the Spotify Camp Nou see unfeasible that the central go to earn 52 million gross euros this year, between fixed wage and differed.

Foreseen the discount salarial of Hammered

According to an information of the newspaper 'PLOUGH', the cut salarial of the defender of 35 years could avoid that the Barça see forced to sell more heritage (another 25% of Barça Studios). I hammered it is valuing right now the possibility to renounce to a percentage of his wage for this year. The cut would be definite, no as in previous occasions to which has accessed only to differ his payments.

In this sense, the Barça expects that I Hammered announce very soon his decision. The club has the intention to expect until the beginning of LaLiga (Saturday 13 August, against the Ray Vallecano in the Spotify Camp Nou) to decide if activate the fifth 'crowbar' economic. What decide the central, as well as Sergio Busquets or Jordi Alba (the best paid of the staff) will be key to know if the culés have to sell more heritage or no.

His wage will not be the only that will change

On the other hand, it is the subject of the role that will have Hammered in this season. It has remained clear that is not in his best version and that the have forced in the last stretch of the past course has had his big consequences. His physicist has generated a lot of doubts and in the Barça understand that, probably, will be impossible to see him to 100% in the next months, by what have left him clear that will have a secondary role, as it informs the newspaper 'SPORT'.

His physical ailments are not the only that take part in this decision of the culés that I Hammered leave to be an indisputable headline. The arrival of Andreas Christensen and, especially, Jules Koundé, changes the panorama for all the Barça. Xavi Hernández wants that the French accompany to Ronald Araújo in the axis of the defence and that both are the indisputable headlines to convert the denfensa in a 'wall'.

This would leave to Christensen like third head office, Eric García the chamber... And Gerard Hammered the fifth. In the breast of the club see it like a change generacional totally necessary and like this would have done it to him know to 'Geri', the one who already has cleared that it does not have intentions to move of the Spotify Camp Nou in the short term.
