Marc-André ter Stegen has signed a new contract in Barcelona.

In doing so, he is apparently against his team, which apparently does not want to take part in a waiver.

  • Marc-André ter Stegen

    has signed a new contract with

    FC Barcelona

    .

  • At the same time, he agreed to a temporary reduction in salary.

  • He and two other professionals are probably against a large part of the team, which allegedly strictly rejects a cut.

Munich -

Marc-André ter Stegen

couldn't do

better

at

FC Barcelona

.

He is the undisputed regular player at the Spanish world club, plays for the biggest titles every year and is one of the world's top earners among goalkeepers.

Now the former

Mönchengladbacher has

also been rewarded with a new contract until 2025.

If he does, he will have been in the Catalans' box for a whole decade.

"Its release clause is set at 500 million euros," the club announced transparently in the press release.

Together with Ter Stegen,

Gerard Piqué

, Clément Lenglet and Frenkie de Jong

have also

extended their contracts.

All four players have

agreed

to "temporary salary adjustments due to the

current circumstances triggered

by the

corona pandemic *

".

FC Barcelona: Team around Lionel Messi will probably not accept a salary waiver

That fits in with a report by the Spanish sports newspaper

AS

, which

claims

to have found out about a split within the team.

Accordingly, a large part of the team around mega-star

Lionel Messi *

does not want to accept another pay cut.

According to

Radio Catalunya,

those responsible for the club are planning a cut of around 30 percent.

That's why the team had prepared a protest statement saying that the players didn't want to accept another pay cut again.

However, three players refused to sign the letter:

Clément Lenglet

,

Frenkie de Jong

and Marc-André ter Stegen - three of the four players who have now signed a new contract with Barca and apparently understand the club's move.

FC Barcelona: The dispute over the salary cut is re-heated

At the beginning of the

corona pandemic *

in March, the club's managers had implemented salary cuts and thus caused a lot of controversy in the club.

At that time, the game was suspended in European football, all teams had to reckon with financial consequences.

That doesn't seem to have changed despite the

resumption of leagues

and tournaments.

If Barcelona cut the wages of its players and employees, who make up around 70 percent of the club's budget, against their will, there is a threat of legal proceedings.

It remains to be seen whether the club intends to forcefully provoke this step.

Finally,

Lionel Messi

should

also reject the cut.

The mega-star was about to switch last summer, but was persuaded to stay.

Maybe that won't work a second time if the club offends him again.
