In addition, the Arsenal management offered that in all new contracts signed with the club, the reduced fee would be returned to them during these months. A 12.5% ​​cut would mean a total of 30 million euros for the club. For his part, Raül Sanllehi, Soccer Director, warned that the club would have trouble offering contract improvements to those nearing completion. Likewise, the Association of Professional Footballers recommended that players only accept cuts if they were in the form of postponements. Until before the coronavirus stoppage, Arsenal was ninth in the Premier League eight points from the Top-4. The Arsenal squad has rejected the club’s initial proposal to reduce footballers’ salaries. The Telegraph has reported that none of the highest-paid players have accepted the measures, which consisted of five key points:– 12.5% ​​reduction in salary from April 2020 to March 2021.– The entire amount is refunded if Arsenal qualifies for the Champions League.– If they do not qualify for the Champions League, the money is not returned.– If they qualify for the Europa League, the reduction will be 7.5%.– If the season does not end or Arsenal does not receive all the money from television, an alternative solution will be sought.last_img
