Gerard Pique to take pay cut to stay at Barcelona

745ng | June 9, 2021

Gerard Pique is set to remain at Barcelona next season, having come to an agreement with club president Joan Laporta over a reduced salary.

The 34-year-old is a major earner at Camp Nou, receiving an annual €16m gross wage from the Catalan giants, on a contract that runs until 2022. However, La Blaugrana’s disastrous financial position has put the Spaniard’s future in doubt.

But Spanish outlet AS understands that Pique will not leave Barça in the summer, and will instead accept a pay cut on the remaining 12 months of his contract.

The World Cup winner met with president Laporta to discuss the club’s failure to win La Liga last season, the future of current boss Ronald Koeman and Pique’s own destiny. The former Manchester United man was very understanding of the club’s financial issues, having been one of the most heavily affected teams by the coronavirus outbreak.

And Pique is believed to have committed to significantly reducing his salary to help his club, becoming the first Barça star to make this sacrifice ahead of the summer transfer window.
