Barcelona registered the newcomers Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia in La Liga, said the club today.
Barca player B Rey Minaj became a La Liga player as well. The coaching staff upgraded him to the first team.
The Spanish club has been able to do so, as Gerard Pique agreed to cut his salary. Doing so, the club found ease amid the financial crisis.
Barcelona pays his players the highest salaries for the players. As time passed and disappointments rolled in at Camp Nou, the salaries exceeded the annual revenue. Reaching this point, the club broke La Liga’s salary regulations. The salary should not exceed 70% of the annual revenue of a club.
This was the chief reason Messi left Brace, as the latter could not pay Leo’s salary after the 50% cut. Their failure to abide by the regulations not only cost them Messi, but also prevented them to bring new reinforcements. Bringing players to fill Messi’s gap—at least.
A day before La Liga opening match starts, Barcelona announces their registration of Memphis, Garcia, and Minaj. Registered, they will be among Koeman’s options against Real Sociedad.
Pique becomes the hero here, as it was not going to happen if he did not reduce his salary. The player showed his willingness to significantly cut off his salary.
As Pique agreed, the club announced their attempt to persuade Alba and Busquets. The two players gain high annual salaries of € 14,949,000 for Busquets and € 8,580,000 for Alba.
Fortunately, the media reported that both are likely to aggree. The club declared that both players are “totally and utterly willing to cooperate.”
The newcomer as well is willing to cut his salary to 30% off, as he sealed the contract. Once Alba and Busquets agree to the reduction, Barcelona will be able to register Sergio Aguero.
