Barcelona ratified an agreement with players to cut salaries
After weeks of negotiations, Barcelona’s players have finally ratified an agreement with their employer to cut wages. As part of the club’s ongoing cost-cutting measures following COVID-19 and LaLiga’s reduced wage cap rules. The players, which included both senior officials and members of the B team, agreed to the last proposal. Receiving 90 per cent of the votes for this agreement. Barcelona were worried that they would not actually have the funds to pay their players all the amounts they owe. But now they can breathe a little easier. The agreement is not a real pay cut for each player. But rather an adaptation over time. A portion of each player’s fixed salary will be paid in the coming years. As well as the bonuses each person has incorporated into their respective contract.
In exchange for the deferral in payment, players will receive appropriate interest on the deferred money. This agreement affects most players, although it is true that some players have already reached a private deal with the club a few weeks ago, which was for Gerard Pique, Frenkie de Jong, Marc-André ter Stegen and Clement Lenglet. With this cut, Los Cules will be able to pay wages that were scheduled for January fully.
