    Jesus, what are you going on about? Good luck trying to sack a player for unprofessional behavior Has that ever happened? Heck, Greenwood still has a contract.

    Busquets & pique's contract expires in 2023 & 2024 respectively, after which the club will probably try to negotiate a buy out of their deferred salaries at a reduced Cost, makes no sense to try to use the stick against them, they have a contract where if they say they want all their money, we have to pay them.

    While de jong at 25, can be sold relatively easily.

    Two different situations, two different tactics.
    Yes FDJ is clearly a sellable asset... no one is arguing otherwise.

    Barca will pay huge money for Pique in next two years.. he is further off the level required than FDJ if looking at it in terms of salaries as club claim is case with FDJ.

    But you cannot sell pique, you can sell de jong, so that's irrelevant.

    I never claimed could sell Pique. I said no club would pay a penny.

    Also the point the club is making is not about a transfer fee it is about salaries due which is point of looking at what is due to players this year and next.

    Maybe it is impossible and Busi/Pique would put money before leaving club in right way but I dont think they would. There would be some compromise at some point to better suit all.

    Could even go as far as not registering Pique for first team squad etc and telling him time is up. Put pressure back in him to sit and take the big money while club no longer wants him. There are a number of reasons he would not fancy that would think.

    But they wont.

    Adrian Mutu. We just got to plant some coke on Pique. I'm sure Riqui Puig will flip for a contract extension.

    Plenty of players have been sacked for unprofessional conduct.

    And I would think the club has a very strong case here, what with Pique being seen partying in private clubs before every other gameday.

    Would just be a incredible precedent to get into a court battle like that with a club legend.

    Yep, which is why de jong is the best option.

    Sell him, we get some money to spend & cap space

    He renegotiates, we get some cap space.

    Pique has said himself he'd retire before being a sub.

    Why don't we see if he puts his money where his mouth is?

    Funniest part about this is that pique will probably still be a smarter next season even if we bring in Kounde 😂

    The Super Cup contract for his own personal gain and using his ties with Spanish FA to try and influence officiating are both surely bringing game into disrepute also if club wanted to go down that line.

    Also having that contract in place and gaining personally from the team qualifying and certain other teams qualifying that you play against... while team mates are flown across there seeing none of those benefits.

    Fuck him.

    I bet he is up to some amount of shit no one knows about that could get brought to light he would never challenge club in court on behaviour etc. While it would also possibly impact his future runs at presidency.

    He is all talk... also said he is a top family man.

    Suppsedly they tried that this summer and all he said was he will be better than any CB they could bring in.

    Guy is a deluded clown with ego that is out of control when it comes to his role at club.

    Who are these plenty of players that have been sacked for unprofessional behavior?

    NFL has some of the weakest player contracts & players there still get their money if they Fuck up.
