Lto serious economic situation that Barcelona is experiencing and that has led, among other things, to lose messi already get rid of Griezmann It seems that it has also reached the basketball section of the club. Jasikevicius’s team, which already lowered their salary during the first phase of the pandemic, has already lost key players such as Adam Hanga or Víctor Claver and can now suffer an earthquake with Nikola Mirotic’s long-term future in question.

Mirotic: “We have put Barça where it deserves”

The Spanish international player is the highest paid of the workforce with a salary of 3.8 million euros. An amount that the club intends to reduce to ensure the sustainability of the project for the coming seasons, although at the moment the negotiations have not managed to advance. MARCA contacted the player’s environment and referred to the contract of a Mirotic who is very comfortable both in Barcelona and in the club, as he has already shown making up to three efforts with respect to original.

As Catalonia Radio pointed out last week, Barça even considered breaking the contract From the past MVP of the Endesa League finals for “poor performance” to try to pressure in the negotiation of the salary cut of a player who has a contract until 2025 after extending his relationship with the team for the same amount that he had signed, with the aim of paying a little less each season.

Condemned to understand each other

“I am happy, very grateful to the club for this opportunity and happy to extend my contract. Suena very good 2025, many years wearing this shirt and hopefully with many successes. I will be one more ‘culer’ until 2025 and wanting to return that confidence, “Mirotic said then.” Everyone knows that it was not easy to return from the United States, but the club has shown me everything with the desire to bring me here and the fans have given me love, good energy and many times I have said that I am surprised at how they have received me “.

Now the club and the player seem condemned to understand each other to renegotiate a new contract and at the moment there is no agreement between the parties, although this does not mean that an imminent exit of the Barcelona team will take place. Mirotic, the highest paid player in Europe, wants to continue at Barça, who also want to continue counting on the player. Although he cannot do it at the current price, as already happened with the Argentine star in the soccer team.
