Piqué also negotiates a reduction in his salary bill

Assume the context of Covid-19. Barça tries to get individual agreements with players in different circumstances. Nothing to do with the 'mileurista' employees.


According to AS, Gerard Piqué, one of the four captains of Barça, with a contract until June 2022, has negotiated a salary reduction with the club that, according to some sources, he would be willing to accept. Piqué, who for obvious reasons is surely the footballer who best knows the impact that the COVID-19 crisis has had on the economy of elite clubs, and not only in football, has had a gesture of complicity that has nothing to do with heroic, but logical. The negotiation of Piqué to which this newspaper had access joins the information that Catalunya Ràdio provided on Saturday. According to said issuer, Ter Stegen, De Jong and Lenget have refused to sign the burofax in which the reduction in salary that the club proposed by email to its employees was rejected.

Despite the logical leakage of information in a club on the eve of an election, Barça is confident that, as happened during lockdown, the first team will circulate in an alternative lane to that of regular workers. That is why the club's CEO, Òscar Grau, is trying to reach individual agreements in different directions. Footballers with long contracts such as Busquets or Alba were already announced this decline in September. The Ter Stegen route will also be opened, which consists of expanding contracts to postpone the amounts. Finally, there are cases in which direct cuts will be attacked and in which solidarity with the club mileuristas is expected. Simply because there is less income.
