Barcelona’s masterplan to tackle huge salary bill

Barcelona’s Director of Football Mateu Alemany has devised a masterplan to help the Catalan club tackle its rising financial issues by reducing the wage bill of the Spanish giants.

According to Football Espana, Alemany has sought to overhaul the style of negotiation at Barcelona and put together incentivized contracts rather than guaranteed money.

This should save the Blaugrana a considerable amount of money should they have to deal with long-term injuries, as is the case with Ronald Araujo.
