Since Joan Laporta’s Appointment as Barcelona president, the club’s reputation has suddenly taken a new turn after Bartomeu destroyed the Club finance.
Though Laporta’s first move since his appointment was his Campaign on massive reduction in wages of overpaid players and him begging the senior players (pique, alba, Ter Stergen and Sergio Busquet) to help the club financially by reducing their wages in the meantime to help the Club survive and unrecoverable financial hit.
As expected, the players followed Joan Laporta’s advice and reduced their wages, and judging from the way Barcelona spent During the winter transfer window, the players they intend to sign during the summer, and the Spotify deal they sealed. It is evident that Barcalona does not intend to restore the contracts of the players that got their contracts temporarily reduced.
This has made Pique come out to speak on the total amount of money Joan Laporta owes him as his role in the club (pique) would have no significant value as Barcelona just signed Andreas Christensen and are planning to raid the market for an additional center back given they already have 5 plus pique.
The Total amount of money Joan Laporta owes Pique is 50 million euros in Salary. A huge sum of money to owe a player.
If pique is owed that massive amount of money what can we then say to the other players that got their wages temporarily reduced? As their owed wages is enough to reck the club financially.
