Victor Valdes Will Earn An Extra €4m Under His New Barcelona Contract - Report

A report in Spain has divulged the details of the Catalan shot-stopper’s new deal…

After months of protracted and unpleasant contract negotiations, Victor Valdes penned a new deal with Barcelona last week to extend his stay at the Camp Nou until 2014.

There was much controversy surrounding his demands prior to agreeing to the new deal, with some rumours speculating that he had asked for €9 million per season.

But El Mundo Deportivo has now revealed that he has been granted a €4m per year pay rise, taking his annual wages to €6m with an additional €2m in result-based variables.

Valdes’ last contract renewal was back in August 2005, fresh off winning his first league title and his first Zamora Trophy, where he was rewarded with a €900,000 bonus and his salary was tripled.

Since then, his terms have not been reviewed until recently and according to El Mundo, Barca reached the decision to grant him a €4m increase at the rate of €1m for each of the past season since 2005.
