Barcelona Requesting Pique And Busquets To Accept Pay Cut
Barcelona thinks that La Liga will make it difficult for them to sign their new acquisitions because of financial fairness. The board has therefore once more requested Busquets and Pique to
Joan Laporta had dinner on Wednesday with Rafa Yuste, Mateu Alemany, Gerard Pique, and Arturo Canales, according to Gerard Romero on "Jigantes." Pique and Xavi Hernandez are both represented by Canales.
The potential pay cut for club captains Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique was the topic of discussion at said meal. There was no mention of Jordi Alba. This suggests that Barcelona is researching their options in case La Liga tries to prevent the Catalan club from registering its new recruits. In order to abide by the league's financial fair play rules, Barca wants to refrain from selling additional assets.
Barca will be forced to sell another 24.5% of Barca Studios if the captains don't agree to lower their pay. This transaction will cost 100 million euros.
Given that his current contract expires at the end of the upcoming season, Busquets appears to be the more likely candidate of the two to agree to the new wage requirement. Therefore, in return for dropping his wages, he could ask the club to extend his contract for one more season, allowing him a further campaign in his beloved Barca shirt.
It would not come as a surprise if the club asked other players who are on large salaries at the club to follow suit. Aubameyang, Jordi Alba, and Marc-Andre Ter Stegen are three names who may soon have a decision to make. However, the situation concerning De Jong’s exit will be central to all of this.
