Busquets needs to lower his wages. Same goes for ter Stegen.
Absolutely. But is not only him. FDJ is the highest earner in Barca with 29.170,000 million per year. On the top of that, the club owe him about 20 mil. from the last two years. Also, 19 y.o. Fati makes 13.950,000 a year, while most of the time on the injured list. We have way too many players with very high wages, which are affecting the club big time. Here is the list of our top earners.
1. F D J - 29.170,000 mil. a year
2. Busquets - 22 mil.
3, J.Alba - 20.8 mil.
4. Lewandowski - 18.750,000
5. Pjanic - 15.620,000
6. A.Fati - 13.950,000
7. Dembele - 13.750,000
8. Fr.Kessie - 13.540,000
9. Raphinha - 12.500,000
10. J.Kounde - 11.460,000
Kicking the can down the road with deferrals is what caused this issue in the first place, causing some players to collect ridiculous wages this season and make the salary cap impossible.
More deferrals and we are just extending the problem and causing future issues with salary cap/registration when Pique/Busquets or whoever collect these gigantic deferred fees, perhaps with a bit of interest too like FDJ's contract.
We need to find a better solution.
Yes. We need to find a better solution. Unfortunately, I can't see anything coming. Laporta is throwing also very big wages to the new players, even though they are not that big as Bartomeus'.
33 years old Lewandowski, who is in his career downhill was given 18.750,000 mil. a year contracts. That is way too much for a veteran, who will not score even 20 goals in all competitions. The possibility of not being able to register all new players is real.
