Jordi Alba’s future is up for grabs as he is set to become the highest paid footballer in the squad after Sergio Busquets ends his career with the first team. FC Barcelona understand the defender wants to fulfill his entire contract until 2024 and they do not mind him staying as long as he agrees to significantly reduce his wages for next season.
And it is that in the offices they are planning a new revolution to strengthen their weakest lines and thus compete for the Champions League. Xavi Hernandez needs a number of key signings and for that the club will have to reduce their wage bill and get rid of players who are not essential. Furthermore, the return of Leo Messi is a priority and it will not be easy to fit his salary into the squad’s payroll.
Jordi Alba will help Barca
With this on the table, ‘Relevo’ journalist, Tony Juanmarti, has revealed that this Tuesday afternoon Alba and President Joan Laporta had a meeting for more than three hours in which they discussed several important points regarding their continuity Did. The defender wants to continue and Barca understands that, but under what conditions it remains to be agreed.
For his part, Helana Kondis from ‘Partidazo de COPE’ has said that the footballer has informed the managers that he is willing to help them with whatever is necessary, which includes a significant pay cut. Today he is not the undisputed starter on the pitch, but he has a very important role in the dressing room for Xavi Hernandez, so his continuation will have the full approval of the coaching staff.
They haven’t put the figures on the table yet
Added to this, Fabrizio Romano assured that the terms of a potential cut were not discussed at the aforementioned ‘summit’, although Barcelona are expected to act on the matter in the coming weeks given the summer market. That being the case, everything indicates that Jordi Alba is more than willing to play its part with Financial Fair Play and it looks increasingly likely to continue.
