Barcelona set to bank over €3m as outcast sale looks set to go through

Posted by

It’s easy to take shots at Barcelona’s transfer policy over recent years, but it’s hard to think of many that wasted money like Miralem Pjanic did.

His move from Juventus also saw Artur Melo move in the opposite direction which may also have been a mistake, but the Bosnian star only played in 19 La Liga games in his one season at the Nou Camp before being loaned to Besiktas.

His salary is also substantial, although the amount is publicly confirmed, it’s estimated he was earning around £270k per week for the majority of his contract in Spain, so getting him off the books is exactly what Barca needs to do.

He’s never going to be a regular part of the first team again, so this looks like a solid solution as he look set to join Sharjah in a move that will also see Barca bank more than €3m as a transfer fee:

It won’t be enough to finance any new incoming, but getting a fee and also getting his wage off the books is a welcome move for Barca and it gives Pjanic a chance to play regular football again.

  1. A mistake to bring in Pjanic to Barca in the first place. Ok so he is a tough customer in the centre of the park, but was Pjanic ever Barca-esque? I say NO.
