The remodeling that Barça underwent last summer had two major casualties: Mirotic and HigginsTwo players who had been the foundation of the project but whose salaries did not fit the economic reality of the club. The Catalan club decided to unilaterally terminate their contracts to free up wages after failing to reach an agreement with either of them, something that now appears to be close to happening, according to Encestando and AS was able to confirm.

Barça owes Mirotic more than 20 million in salary (he had two seasons left) and 3′4 to HigginsIn the case of the American, it is an amount that can be managed in the short term and the agreement will avoid going to court. In the case of Mirotic, the most complex, a way has been sought to deal with that money without having to mortgage the present of the section or end up in court. The formula found is none other than paying in installments, four or five, which would allow Mirotic to collect a large part of what is owed to him and Barcelona to face those payments. in a more comfortable way. According to AS, the final agreement will be just under 20 million.

Mirotic’s exorbitant salary (practically 11 million a year) is a consequence of having deferred part of his salary during the pandemic years. In other words, in Jasikevicius’ first years on the bench, Mirotic was paid less than what was stipulated in his contract, something that he would recover in the last two years. Terminating his contract, obviously, did not exempt Barça from meeting its contractual obligations, but that money no longer counted as wages, which allowed the section’s budget to be lowered. If that money had been provisioned as losses, it can now be distributed over the next few seasons.
