FC Barcelona continues its transfer window with a beating pace. After bringing in Dani Alvès a few weeks ago, then, more recently, Ferran Torres, the Catalan club have managed to lend with an option to buy until the end of the season Philippe Coutinho at Aston Villa. It is probably not the deal of the century, but it is a big salary less to pay each month. This is what this article is all about. Before the officialization of the Brazilian, the channel Sport3 unveiled Barca’s biggest gross salaries.
We understand better why it was absolutely necessary to degrease. The work had already started last summer with the departure of Leo Messi from PSG. Admittedly, the Argentinian and the Culés wanted to stay together but the economic situation of the club did not allow a new agreement. It is therefore 135 million euros (gross) per year less to pay. Antoine Griezmann’s loan to Atlético de Madrid also saved a gross salary of € 21 million per year.
Umtiti, 3rd biggest salary of the club
Philippe Coutinho receives 16 M € per year and, even if over the next six months, it is Aston Villa who will pay him his salary, he can still return to the Blaugranas in June since his contract runs until 2023. Ousmane Dembélé should leave him next summer, declining extension offers. If it is a hard blow for the management and Xavi, the departure of the French will make it possible to make big savings there too because he receives 12 M € per year in salary at his club.
The dinosaurs in the locker room are almost all the way up and are still under contract. Even if he had accepted a salary reduction during the crisis, Gerard Pique recovered his gross € 28 million thanks to the payment of bonuses. Sergio Busquets is located at 23 M € per year and Jordi Alba at 20 M €. We also understand Barça’s exasperation in the face of the Umtiti case and its annual € 20 million. Ter Stegen receives 14 M € per year, while Sergi Roberto, whose contract ends in June, pockets 12 M €.
