Barcelona Gerard Pique

Barcelona has rejected a report that reveals the salaries of Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and Gerard Pique. Lluis Canut revealed that Pique earns £25m annually while Alba and Busquets earn £19m and £16.7m respectively. Despite the trio taking wage cuts, Canut claimed that these cuts were deferrals and not reductions. In response to these accusations, Pique posted a screenshot that showed that 50% of his salary amounted to £1.9m as of 30 December.

“In relation to the statements made by Mr. Lluís Canut yesterday on the TV3 program ‘Onze’, FC Barcelona wishes to clarify the following,” FC Barcelona said in a statement about Gerard Pique. “The information on the salaries of certain first-team players has not, in any case, been provided by the club and its origin is unknown. In any case, the amounts referred to in the information are erroneous, do not correspond to reality, and, furthermore, in the case of the first three players referred to, it gives fixed amounts which, being variable, will possibly never be merited.”

“It is false that the players mentioned have only deferred 100% of their salary. Mr. Piqué, Mr. Busquets, and Mr. Alba waived part of their salary when they signed their last contract renewal last summer.” the statement added. “We consider it improper, unprofessional and acting in bad faith when this information is offered as true and truthful and regret that information of this type is provided which affects the personal rights of the players and which deserves, when true, the highest confidentiality.”
