Barcelona finally registered Memphis Depay, Eric García and Rey Manaj in LaLiga this Saturday, thanks to the agreement reached with Gerard Piqué for the second captain of the team to significantly lower his salary, as announced by the Catalan club.
In this way, Ronald Koeman will be able to count on all the players available for this Sunday's match with Real Sociedad corresponding to the first day of the competition. It should be remembered that another signing this season, forward Sergio Agüero, will be out for two and a half months due to injury.
It is for this reason that the Barcelona club has decided to postpone the registration of the Argentine, a former Manchester City player. “On the other hand, the club continues to work together with two of the four captains such as Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba to reach a salary adjustment to the situation that the entity is currently experiencing. In this sense, it should be noted that the predisposition on the part of both players is total and absolute ”, reported Barça.
“We know what the economic situation is and the club needs help in every way. It is very important and we must highlight the attitude of Gerard, Roberto, Alba, Busi ... They have been here for many years and want to help the club and show that they are people from home, "said Koeman at a press conference about Piqué's financial sacrifice .
