“It is a state issue. In Spain, a tax improvement is not going to be considered.”

To give an example, a footballer plying his trade at Real Madrid must pay 45.50 percent of his salary in taxes, while this rate is set at 50 percent in Barcelona.

No LaLiga Santander player is earning more than Gareth Bale, with Antoine Griezmann coming second, followed by Eden Hazard.

Sergio Busquets is Barcelona’s highest-paid player, while Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba recently agreed to modify their salaries by accepting a pay cut.
