'Sport': Pique cut his salary in half to renew

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 451

'Sport' reports that Gerard Piqué, who renewed with Barcelona until 2024, facilitated the negotiations by cutting his salary by 50%. He is one of the most established players in the team and one of those who earn the most, so it was a very profitable move for the club.

Shortly after the victory against Ferencvaros in Koeman's debut in the Champions League, the club announced that it renewed the contract of the centre-back and three other players. But what it did not say was that Gerard had sacrificed himself to facilitate it.

The newspaper 'Sport' reports that he accepted a 50% salary reduction, i.e. half. This makes clear his commitment to Barcelona, because the latest information on the lowering of salaries handled by the management did not go as far. In short, the footballer lowered his salary even more than was necessary.

This will be a great help to the club in resolving its current financial situation, which is not ideal. He even acknowledged in a public statement that there were huge losses due to the coronavirus crisis. This is why it was not possible to close the Memphis Depay deal, for example.

The reduction of Pique's salary is not the only unannounced condition of his contract. 'Mundo Deportivo' points out that, from the season 2021-22, he will have to play a minimum of games to continue in the team.
