Barcelona has registered Sergio Aguero after Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba accepting a cut in their salaries. Barcelona had announced the signing of Aguero in May but new financial rules in Spain did not allow the club from registering a number of their new signings. In August, Gerard Pique had taken a pay cut in order for the club to sign Memphis Depay, Eric Garcia, and Rey Minaj.
“The salary reductions for Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, two of the four first-team captains, signed this Tuesday have allowed FC Barcelona to achieve two objectives: the registration of Sergio Aguero with the Spanish Football League (LFP) and to extend the club’s limit with regards to financial fair play regulations.” a Barcelona club statement said after completing the registration of Sergio Aguero. “Sergio and Jordi Alba have agreed to changes in the financial terms of their contracts which included a wage reduction for this season and the deferment of payments for the remaining years.”
“As such, FC Barcelona has completed the registration of its players with the LFP.” the statement added. “The gesture from the two players comes after the agreement recently signed by Gerard Pique which also allowed his team-mates Memphis, Eric Garcia, and Rey Manaj to be registered with the league.”
Aguero will be forced to wait for his debut after suffering a calf injury that will keep him out till October. He has been faced with a tough start to his Barcelona career with his close friend Lionel Messi leaving the club in a dramatic fashion.
