In the football team there are not only problems, since the economic crisis has affected the basketball team, where there will also be monetary cuts and even the departure of its main star.
Joan Laporta has no rest and less when a new season is about to start, this time the dilemma is in the basketball section of the FC Barcelona. If the soccer team has financial problems in its wage bill, the quintet under the orders of Sarūnas Jasikevicius is not saved. There, too, they are feeling the rigors of financial constraints.
What it proposes so much laporta Like the sports management of the basketball section, it is the output of some players whose salaries are through the roof. Although later they have reconsidered the situation, and with the departure of a single basketball player, they will level the precise balances to start a new season, without tax gaps.
Nikola Mirotic must leave FC Barcelona Basketball by order of Laporta
The Montenegrin power forward Nikola Mirotic is undoubtedly the most outstanding player of the culé club, but also the one who earns the most in the entire squad. His salary is approximately 10 million euros a year, and his contract is signed until 2025. In this way, it will be very difficult for the team to take charge of these emoluments for the following course, without having financial problems.
After a meeting between the presidency and the financial department of FC Barcelona, they have determined that the margin to save is 10 million. That figure is exactly similar to the salary that must be paid to the Montenegrin basketball player. Thus, the most feasible solution is for the power forward to step aside, once the current season ends.
To the bitterness of Laporta and FC Barcelona, the Montenegrin player will not give in
A dismissal at this point is not the most advisable thing for the Barcelona team, since they could lose more than the 20 million euros that the player is owed. The best and safest way to solve this economic dilemma is for Nikola Mirotic himself to terminate his contractand reach an agreement with the team for the payment of salary.
Laporta expects the Balkan basketball player to follow the example of Jordi Alba, who forgave 40% of his remaining salary. The difference is that the footballer had a contract until 2024, one year less than Mirotic. The truth is that the power forward has no intention of dissociating himself from FC Barcelona Basketball, much less forgiving a percentage of his salary.
