FC Barcelona Players Salaries 2022/2023: These are the salaries of Barca footballers for the 2022/2023 season. The culé team must reduce the salary cost to comply with the Financial Fair Play and be able to register the new signings
FC Barcelona is being one of the great protagonists of the 2022/2023 transfer market. After Messi’s departure, Barça faced a restructuring of the project that required many changes with the sale of players, downward renewals, and incorporations with a clear salary limit.
There are many who ask themselves the question: but how much do the FC Barcelona players earn for all this to have happened?
We are going to detail the list of the salaries of the Barcelona players in the following salary table in which we hardly find chips out of the market.
FC Barcelona Players Salaries 2022/2023
The total wage bill of the FC Barcelona squad.
All annual salaries correspond to the net salary, which is 50% of the total they receive. To consider:
- The remaining 50% would complete the player’s gross salary.
- Salaries are specified without individual or collective bonuses.
- Compensation for salary reductions will not be taken into account (they should be added to the annual fixed rate).
- The figures are approximate and always take into account that they are collected from sports media related to the club. If you think you can better approximate a player’s salary, don’t hesitate to leave us a comment.

** Pending renewal: it is estimated that the young Spanish pearl receives a salary of no less than five million euros net. Her agent asks to be at Araujo’s level.
Winter Transfer Market
Barça hopes to be able to register Dani Alves and Ferran Torres in this winter transfer market after completing their contracts. The two players have arrived with low salaries, aware of the difficulty of the club, although in the case of the footballer from Manchester City, he has bonuses for goals and titles that would increase his annual emoluments.
For that to happen, players must leave who do not count for Xavi Hernández and who, in some cases, are among the players who earn the most in the squad: Coutinho, Umtiti, Neto, Dest, or Luuk de Jong.
Summer Transfer Market
Antoine Griezmann became the player who earned the most in the culé squad with the departure of Messi to PSG. In fact, the Frenchman was one of those who were on the exit ramp to be able to lighten the wage bill in this transfer window in which he ended up ending up at Atlético de Madrid.
Another player who is a burden to the battered economy of FC Barcelona is Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian arrived at Camp Nou together with Dembélé to make Neymar forget and has been one of the worst signings in the history of Barça.
With a salary of more than 24 million euros per year, he is one of the footballers with the highest percentage of excess salary and has refused to go out with the idea of being able to play this season under Ronald Koeman.
The third player who has been in the eye of the hurricane has been Pjanic, a footballer who has been inconsequential to the team’s interests since his arrival from Juventus. The exchange with Arthur (plus 12 million) still does not square anyone and is placed in the top 3 of nefarious operations by Bartomeu. The transfer of him has managed to alleviate the salary mass of the staff but he continues with a contract.
The latest player to be questioned over the salary/performance ratio is Samuel Umtiti. The French center-back has been chaining injuries that have kept him away from the pitch and his recovery does not seem to come. He went from winning the World Cup with the national team to being a regular in the infirmary, the stands, or on the bench.
Salary of signed players in 2021/2022
In addition to the salary cost of the current squad, we must add the four signings at ‘zero’ cost that FC Barcelona has made. These are Memphis Depay , Eric García, Kun Agüero and Emerson Royal (8 million). The salaries of these four players continue to be a problem for the culé team since they are still unable to register any player in the competition until they release salary bills.
Although it is expected that they can be registered, for the moment a series of exits in the squad has to be given. The departures that seem closest are those of Pjanic and Umtiti, but it is expected that there will be more movements between now and the end of the transfer period in Spain.
What already seems reality is that the post-Messi era has moved forward and the necessary steps must be taken so that the same mistake is not repeated with the salaries of FC Barcelona players. The squad planning should be balanced and combined with the academy.
