€50m-rated Man City star agrees to pay cut for Barcelona move

Published

on

FC Barcelona are currently at a point where housing extravagant salaries for top players is no longer feasible for the Catalan club given their ongoing financial problems and their consistent attempts at stabilising them.

As a result, they have attempted to sign the top players on conditions that would see them lower their demands relative to their previous salaries so that Barcelona can financially facilitate their arrivals.

Moreover, even as they negotiate with future signings, Barcelona have kept these conditions consistent and it seems they have been applied yet again to the most recent of negotiations conducted by Barcelona.

As per Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, FC Barcelona have agreed a salary of €6 million with 29-year-old Portuguese star and Manchester City right-back Joao Cancelo in their recent agreement.

The Portuguese star and FC Barcelona reached an agreement on personal terms just recently as per Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, with the legitimacy of the operation now very convincing given the quantity and reliability of reports that have emerged.

If Romero’s report is proven to be accurate, Barcelona have managed to agree a very favorable salary for arguably one of the best fullbacks in the current scheme of European football despite his rough patches in recent times.

According to Romano, FC Barcelona will now proceed to negotiate with English Premier League outfit Manchester City, who Cancelo is contracted to until 2027, to figure out the structure of a possible deal to bring the Portuguese star over to Catalonia.

Fenerbahce fined over Turkish Super Cup walk-out

Fenerbahce were fined 115,000 euros ($123,175) on Thursday over their Turkish Super Cup protest at the weekend.

Fenerbahce walked off the field in the opening minutes of the fixture against Galatasaray on Sunday as a protest against alleged unfair treatment.

Fenerbahce fielded an Under-19 team for the game against their Istanbul rivals. Galatasaray went ahead after three minutes with Fenerbahce then walking off in a pre-planned protest.

The Turkish Football Federation awarded Galatasaray a 3-0 win and issued Fenerbahce with the six-figure fine.

“It’s time for Turkish football to be reset,” Fenerbahce president Ali Koc had told a press conference before the match.

Fenerbahce are chasing their first Turkish title since 2014 and are two points behind champions Galatasaray with seven rounds to go. Fenerbahce claim they are being picked on.

They had asked for the Super Cup to be postponed ahead of their Europa League quarter-final against Olympiakos on Thursday.

And the club had also demanded that a foreign referee take charge of the Super Cup, citing unfavourable treatment from Turkish referees.

Both demands were denied by the Turkish federation.
