Barcelona propose salary readjustment to players
Joan Laporta is willing to do whatever it takes to balance Barcelona’s books and he has proposed to certain players different salary adjustments so that the club can adhere to LaLiga’s salary cap.
Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto are the four players whose salaries are regarded as high, considering the club’s situation following the COVID-19 outbreak.
Hence, Barcelona have proposed different salary adjustments to all four, depending on the years they have left in their contracts and potential renewals.
In talks between the club and players’ agents, there are those who are not willing to pay for Barcelona’s poor management in the past, despite being aware of the tough situation the Blaugrana are going through.
The pandemic has wreaked havoc with the club’s finances and Laporta’s board are obliged to cash in on players such as Samuel Umtiti, Miralem Pjanic and Antoine Griezmann in order to meet LaLiga’s salary cap requirements.
Barcelona believe that their players will agree on the salary adjustments, which will allow the club to register their four new signings, three of whom joined on free transfers.
The Catalan club need to adhere to LaLiga’s financial fair play rules and by doing so they will be able to extend the contract of Lionel Messi, whose deal expired on July 1.
Barcelona’s board of directors currently hope that they can reach agreements over wages’ readjustments before August 15, otherwise they have not ruled out taking more drastic measures.
Grealish to Man City: Old tweets showing grealish throwing support behind Man Utd
Jack Grealish is said to be moments away from signing a deal with Premier League giants Manchester City…but what would his former self think of the move?
City have reportedly made an offer of up to £100million for Grealish, with English football’s biggest-ever transfer now expected to be completed next week.
However, with a potential deal on the horizon, fans couldn’t help but re-share some of Grealish’s Tweets about Manchester City from nine years ago.
The 16-year-old took to Twitter to write: ‘Football is on! Please United win and City lose, I cannot watch City win the league lol, come on the Villa aswell!!’
Grealish also shared a post the read: ‘On route to training, finally I’m back training n the suns shining, absolutely BUZZING for the game tonight, come on u reds #United’.
The resurfaced Tweets will leave Grealish red in the face as he is set to become he country’s most expensive player after accepting a deal with the Citizens.
The top-flight champions have long since been linked with a move for Grealish as they look to retain their crown next season, and identified him as a top target.
It is understood that the first talks between Grealish and the club were held on Tuesday and Wednesday.
An opening offer of up to £100m was then made, and figures from both clubs have since been back and forth as City looked to find a package Villa would accept.
And now, after formally tabling their bid, City will hope that Villa agree to begrudgingly part ways with their talismanic playmaker.
As it stands, Grealish is expected to report back for pre-season next week…but it is currently unclear whether he will re-join his team-mates at Villa or head up to City.
He has been holidaying in Mykonos after helping England reach the Euro 2020 final, and the speculation mounted further during his time away.
