Mercato: how Piqu got the Bara back

At the center of too many controversies, central defender Gerard Piqu ended up annoying the leaders of FC Barcelona who come to hope for his departure…

The future of Piqu au Bara darkens…

In this period of transfer window, there is frying on the line between FC Barcelona and one of its managers, Gerard Piqu… This Saturday, the newspaper Sport reveals that the Catalan leaders hope that the central defender of 35 years old, under contract until June 2024, will set sail this summer!

A lower quality/price ratio

Due to his comfortable salary, estimated at 19 million euros per year, which he will never be able to collect elsewhere, the Spaniard certainly has no intention of giving them this pleasure. But above all, one can wonder how the two parties got there… Given the player’s age, there is first of all an obvious sporting decline: Piqu is less and less reliable and more and more prone to injuries , which only allowed him to play 2 of the last 9 days of La Liga this season.

But this reason alone is not enough to explain the annoyance of the leaders. At a time when Bara has taken it into his head to reduce his payroll, valued by the club at 560 million euros, one of the highest in Europe, the former Red Devil is dragging his feet and would not wish not agree to a further reduction in its moluments. This is probably the heart of the problem…

serial business

To make matters worse, Piqu tends to collect embarrassing cases lately. In April, there was first the episode of his audio messages with the president of the Spanish Federation, Luis Rubiales. The Barcelonian manages the event company Kosmos, which received the sum of €24 million for the organization of six editions of the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia. This double hat is becoming more and more disturbing…

To make matters worse, the Iberian finds himself again in the spotlight for non-sporting reasons in recent days due to his separation from Shakira. Worried about the impact that his private problems could have on his performance, the Blaugrana leaders would clearly not take a dim view of Piqu’s departure this summer. But they cannot openly push the legend of the club towards the exit, at the risk of putting the supporters on their backs…
