One of the reasons the Catalans were unable to-resign Messi was due to the fact that their wage bill was too high and does not meet the league's salary cap.

Not only were the club unable to re-sign Lionel Messi, but they were not able to register new signings Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia until their wage bill dropped.

With Messi now officially off the books, French publication L'equipe have reported that Atoine Griezmann is now the highest-paid player at the club as he takes home €20million a season.

Philippe Coutinho, who was heavily linked with an exit, comes in at second spot on the list with €14million despite not having featured for the first team since December 2020.

Gerard Pique was earning a reported €10million but it was confirmed by the club that he reduced his salary to help lower the club's wage bill for the new season.
