Pjanic agrees to 60 percent pay cut
Barcelona were able to cut a lot of costs on transfer deadline day, and there has been further good news on that front with it emerging that Miralem Pjanic has agreed to take a 60 percent pay cut upon leaving for Besiktas on loan. The 31-year-old midfielder departed the Camp Nou after just one season in Spain, signing for the Turkish giants on a one-year loan, but before he did so he agreed to drop his salary with Los Cules.
Pjanic’s loan transfer and his salary cut
Pjanic is quite mediocre and most of the time, and we kind of all expected reaction from Barcelona, first of all he is loaned to another team, and his is getting a salary cut while being loaned, and actually this may be a good thing for him, he may find his salary quite low for his needs, so will progress and evolve, because all of this. Whether or not he is sold before 2024 is unclear, but Barcelona will breathe a huge sigh of relief in the knowledge that he will no longer be one of their top earners and a fiscal millstone around their neck. Ronald Koeman has barely used Pjanic, with his transfer from Juventus looking all the more like a purely financial decision, rather than a sporting one, yet the deal to take him to Turkey was rushed through on Thursday evening. The agreement between Barcelona and Besiktas is for a loan spell without either an option or obligation to buy, with the Istanbul club taking on around 2.7 million euros of Pjanic’s adjusted salary. The remaining part will be paid by Barcelona.
Future of Pjanic
Pjanic future seems to quite promising, only thing all we have to do is to wait and see what is he going to do at this point, future will show us if Pjanic is going to indeed stay in his todays position or go out of his way and evolve as a player in his new club.
