Barcelona players were willing to take a pay cut to fund Neymar’s return – Pique

Neymar back from Paris St Germain to Barcelona is so much important for Barca that the players were ready to take their payment delay.  Gerard Pique informed earlier today that Barcelona players were willing to take a pay cut to fund Neymar‘s return. Barca offers to restructure salary for Neymar’s return. It shows that Barca’s faith in Neymar, they are so keen to take him back for their team. Barca spent the bulk of the last transfer opening to try Neymar’s back from PSG, after two years when he made his journey to PSG from the Catalan club for a huge amount of transfer fee of 222 million euros which was a record-breaking amount to transfer a player in club football history. But both clubs failed to reach an agreement before the deadline of transfer in September.

Barcelona already signed Frenkie de Jong for 75 million, and French forward Antoine Griezmann for 120 million euros. That’s why they were restricted in their pursuit of Neymar, in the regulation of Financial Fair Play by UEFA. Rules designed to protect the game’s richest owners from overpowering their rivals, with clubs obliged to be transparent about revenue, and to keep them in balance rather than spend. They may also include a limit on damage clubs.


On Thursday club president Josep Maria told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, they told Bartomeu that if it is necessary to meet Financial Fair Play regulations to delay payments in our contracts for sign Neymar they would do it.

“We were ready to modify our agreement. We weren’t going to donate money, but we were going to make easier some things by allowing amount in the second or third year in place of the first year.”
