Barcelona squad wages revealed despite crippling financial issues including Ousmane Dembele on nearly £300k-A-WEEK

B

The staggering payroll of Barcelona has been revealed amid another summer of spending despite financial turmoil.

The Catalan giants have a mountain of debt and owe their own players, including Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong, money in unpaid wages.

Despite pleading poverty, club president Joan Laporta has continued to fork out on hefty transfers.

Barca have spent £137million on Raphinha, Jules Kounde and Robert Lewandowski, while free agents Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen have also been signed.

Website FC Barcelona Latest News have collated a wage list featuring most of the squad and what they believe their salaries to be.

Not quite all the team feature – with Lewandowski the only new boy to have his weekly wage listed.

But there is certainly still enough detail to raise eyebrows.

Ousmane Dembele put pen to paper on a new two-year contract at the end of last season after a transfer saga that saw him linked with Chelsea.

The Frenchman is claimed to be earning £297,000-a-week – a staggering salary for a club in financial turmoil to hand out.

Meanwhile, it’s little wonder Barca are desperate to get defender Samuel Umtiti off the books, with the injury-plagued star reportedly pocketing £263k-a-week.

Sergio Busquets is next up on £253k, with fellow stalwart Jordi Alba earning £231k.

Fellow La Masia graduate Sergi Roberto is listed on £164k a week, the same figure as De Jong.

The Dutchman’s potential Man United transfer is reportedly being held up by £17m in deferred wages that he is owed by Barca.

Lewandowski is next up, accepting less than he could have gotten at Bayern at £160k to move to Catalonia.

While Memphis Depay, who has had his No9 shirt taken away by the Pole, is on £148k and has reportedly accepted that he is likely to move – with Juventus and Tottenham linked.

Barca are reportedly trying to flog Neto to Bournemouth, with the backup stopper earning an eyewatering £98k a week.

While they are also desperate to buy out Martin Braithwaite’s deal, with the forward on the same amount.

Ansu Fati is claimed to be on £69k, with Sergino Dest on £64k, Eric Garcia on £51k and Ronald Araujo on £35k – despite the Uruguayan signing a new deal in April.

Pedri is listed at an eyebrow-raising £32k a week.
