Club approaches final settlement for contract terminations

By Eurohoops team /

Barcelona underwent significant restructuring last summer, resulting in the departure of two pivotal players, Nikola Mirotic and Cory Higgins.

The Blaugrana club decided to unilaterally terminate their contracts to free up wages after failing to reach agreements with either player, a development now nearing completion according to Encestando, and confirmed by AS.

Barcelona is reportedly obligated to pay Mirotic over 20 million euros for the remaining two seasons of his contract, while Higgins is owed 3.4 million euros.

The club managed to avoid legal proceedings with Higgins by reaching a manageable short-term agreement. However, Mirotic’s case presented a greater challenge.

To address this, Barcelona structured a payment plan in four or five installments. This approach allows Mirotic to receive a substantial portion of his owed salary while providing Barcelona with a manageable payment schedule.

According to AS, the final settlement for Mirotic will be slightly below 20 million euros.
