Gerard Pique has reportedly agreed to a contract restructure with Barcelona. The club legend is one of the most well-respected defenders in the world, even if he’s heading towards the end of thie career, and has gotten paid like it.

His outspokenness and level of respect in the dressing room make him an essential piece to the club and his commitment is key for the club’s future. Part of what makes Pique great is his understanding of football economics. His ownership of Spanish football club FC Andorra has seemed to help Pique view the footballing world with some fresh eyes.

That’s led to him reportedly being willing to take a pay cut. The Spanish international is under contract till 2024 and willing to restructure his deal to make less in order to help the club. Legend.
