The centre-back, who still has two more years left on his contract, is the talk of the town because the club’s sporting directors want him to leave Barcelona this summer.

Pique intends to stay and is not willing to leave the club

Gerard Pique has become one of the key players in Barcelona’s transfer window. The centre-back, who still has two more years left on his contract, is the talk of the town because the club’s sporting directors want him to leave Barcelona this summer. The coach has held a meeting with the player in which he has expressed that he no longer sees him as a starter next season and that his role in the team has changed. However, despite this warning, the player will not leave Barcelona. The player intends to stay and is not willing to leave the club even if he is not going to be an undisputed starter. Pique has made up his mind and will remain for at least one more year. The situation is complex. Barcelona’s problem with Pique is basically financial rather than sporting. The fee he will receive next season is enormous.

If Gerard were to leave, Barca would have a wider margin to sign players

According to some sources, it is well over 40 million euros. This is a burden for the club in terms of the wage bill. If Pique were to leave, Barcelona would have a wider margin to sign players. The club wants the player to reduce his salary. It will not be easy. Pique already reduced his salary and deferred money last year. However, the club is going to push hard for him, Busquets and Alba, all three of whom have big salaries, to give up part of their wages to reduce the wage bill. It remains to be seen whether the players will agree to lower their salaries again. The negotiations will take place soon, and Pique could be set to lower his salary again. The centre-back left this possibility open in his conversation with Xavi, telling him: “I’m going to help as much as I can.”

On a sporting level, Pique performed well during the season. His presence has been vital in many games and the team’s defensive record, especially in terms of goals conceded, is considerably better when Pique is playing. In addition, his leadership on the pitch is beyond doubt, as has also been seen throughout this season. The most significant question mark on a sporting level is the issue of injuries. In the last two seasons, the player has missed 31 league games as he has not been available for the coach due to injury. That’s a lot of games, and that’s the fear among the sporting directors, given he is the highest-paid player in the squad.
