The first was Gerard Piqué and players such as Èric García and Memphis Depay were registered. Now, it is the turn of Jordi Alba, who will cut his salary next week as part of the negotiations of the FC Barcelona with the players with the highest chips in the squad, starting with the club captains after the departure of Lionel Messi.
And it is that part of the current situation of the club -debt of 1,350 million euros- is due to the high chips that the culé squad has, especially during Bartomeu’s management, but which now wants to rearrange with salary readjustments .
The arrival of Laporta to the management of Barcelona was intended, among other things, to seek to reduce the wage bill. Today, this operation is vital to register the entire squad – ‘Kun Agüero is missing – and to better manage the income and expenses of the Blaugrana club for the future.
In this way, the club and the left-handed side are about to close a deal to reduce their salary, one that LaLiga accepts, and that could be finalized in the first days of next week, according to Diario Sport.
In fact, the conversations between the player and the club have intensified in recent days, especially after the reduction of Piqué, one of the club’s captains with the departure of Messi. But that would not be all, the other two culés captains, Sergio Busquets and Sergi Roberto, would also reach an agreement in the next few days to follow the path traced by the former United defender.
