Barcelona captain Sergi Busquets willing to defer his wages

Barcelona captain Sergi Busquets is willing to defer his wages to help the club's finances.

Marca says his agent Josep Maria Orobitg met with Barcelona directors this Tuesday and they reached an agreement in principle for the midfielder's wages to be deferred to a later date.

It's not a salary reduction. Rather, Busquets would be paid what he is owed across more instalments and further into the future.

This is one way of adapting to the Catalan club's current financial situation, as Barcelona need to reduce as many of their current costs as possible.

The deal has yet to be finalised, but an agreement in principle was worked out between the two parties this Tuesday.

Busquets' current deal runs to June 2023.
