“Alba’s enigmatic agents embark on an explosive rendezvous with Barca to unravel the uncertain fate of the player”
On Wednesday, a meeting was held by Barcelona, specifically through Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff, with the representatives of Jordi Alba to discuss the future of the left-back. Alba, who has been with the club for 11 years, is one of the highest-paid players in the squad and will see a significant increase in salary due to deferred payments agreed in the pandemic, making his net earnings up to 18 million euros. It is crucial for Barcelona to free up their wage bill to increase their “financial fair play” objectives, which is why they believe that a pay cut for Alba is essential. Interstar Sport’s representatives, Vicente Fores and Jose Manuel Tarraga, who represent Alba, were met by Alemany and Cruyff to put forward two options: termination of the contract to negotiate with another club or a major pay cut.
