Barcelona and Gerard Piqué are closing in on an agreement that will see the player reduce his salary, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.
According to the deal, the 35-year-old will go back to the salary he earned before he signed his current contract in 2020. The contract will still be valid until 2024, as it was agreed two years ago.
Earlier this week, Frenkie de Jong was asked to make a similar move, however, Barcelona and the Dutchman’s agents are yet to arrive at an agreement.
The reduction of Piqué’s salary will reduce the pressure on the club’s finances, allowing the Catalan side to register the signings they have made this summer for their upcoming La Liga campaign.
The Blaugrana board are still in the process of negotiating with Clément Lenglet, Frenkie de Jong and Marc-André Ter Stegen to take a wage cut in order to balance the club’s books.
