Barcelona announced the renewal of contracts for four of its players, namely Gerard Pique, Dutchman Frankie de Jong, German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and French defender Clement Langley, adding that they had reached an agreement on a "temporary salary adjustment".
"The agreements were reached after weeks of negotiations and include a temporary salary adjustment due to the current conditions caused by the Covid-19 crisis," the Catalan club said in a statement.
Pique renewed his contract until 2024 on the condition that the defender play a certain number of matches in the 2021-2022 season, AFP reported.
In the event that the Spanish international stayed at the "Camp Nou" stadium until the end of the contract, which includes a penalty clause worth 500 million euros, he will be 37 years old.
The renewal of Ter Stegen's contract until 2025 will bring reassurance to Barcelona, especially after the distinguished levels he has provided with the team in the past two seasons, as the value of the penalty clause also reached 500 million euros.
While De Young and Langley renewed their contracts until 2026, where the value of the penalty clause amounts to 400 million euros for the first and 300 for the second.
