Gerard Piqué is a real long-running favorite at FC Barcelona and certainly a highly decorated player. The 35-year-old has been at the club since 2008 and has won all the major titles with the Catalans. Now, however, his time at Barca is slowly but surely coming to an end.
Actually, Gerard Piqué is tied to FC Barcelona until 2024. However, a separation could take place earlier. According to the Spanish daily Sport, FC Barcelona would like to get rid of the veteran as soon as possible. It is well known that FC Barcelona wants to save salaries and Piqué is of course one of the top earners, even if he only plays a minor role in sport. The club should even try to terminate the contract with the defender prematurely. However, this should be difficult because the actor is not only a well-paid player, but a tough businessman.
For Piqué, life will certainly go on after the FC Barcelona chapter. The defender has finally built his second leg as a businessman and has already taken over a club with his investment group. This is FC Andorra, which Piqué took over in 2018, taking on the posts of CEO, President and Chairman of the Board at the same time. The club is currently playing in the second division after several promotions in recent years. There has been speculation in recent weeks that the Barca star could join his own club as a player. This seems more realistic from week to week.
