FC Barcelona have been able to register two of their new signings after Gerard Pique agreed to take a big wage cut.

The Catalan giants were struggling to register new players due their high wage bill, which was also the reason Lionel Messi was not able to sign his new contract.

The club have now registered Memphis, Eric Garcia and Rey Manaj after confirming that Pique has reduced his wages.

Statement:

FC Barcelona is able to register Memphis, Eric Garcia and Rey Manaj to play in the Spanish Liga de Futbol Profesional. This has been made possible thanks to an agreement with Gerard Piqué whereby the Barça second captain’s salary has been substantially reduced.

This means that all of the first team players will be available for selection by Ronald Koeman for this Sunday’s opening Liga fixture against Real Sociedad.

The club is also continuing to work with two of the other captains, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, to adapt their salaries to the club’s current situation. It must be noted that both players are totally and utterly willing to cooperate.
