Truce at Barça: the squad will sit at the negotiating table

Barcelona's first team will sit at the negotiating table for salary cuts as of next week with a view to this course, more dramatic even than the previous one due to the loss of income of the club from the beginning of it as a result of Covid-19. According to SER Catalunya, the players have agreed after the club has confirmed that they will individually negotiate the case of the first team, something that, on the other hand, he was already doing with some players.

Barça have renewed Ter Stegen, Lenglet, De Jong and Piqué these days to postpone payments. Dest, Trincao or Pjanic had already signed under those conditions and these days they are also negotiating with Alba, Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Coutinho or Dembélé. The most unique case is that of Messi, who ends his contract in June 2021.

The agreement comes hours after the publication of an interview with Gerard Piqué in La Vanguardia whereDespite having signed his renewal unilaterally, the captain complained about the Barça club's way of negotiating. The agreement opens a truce between players and the board at hours of the important Clásico this Saturday.
