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. Like this then , always according to the numbers that has desvelado the before quoted source, in the 2022-2023 will earn 18 millions: 14M of his wage and 4M slopes.
