The net salary approved to renew the defender was 28 million euros net per season, a figure he could raise including variable and bonuses.
In this way, Hammered assured to charge a total of 142 million euros gross over five years, a figure much higher than the agreement which previously signed Sergio Bouquets at Real Madrid.

The sanction to Hammered that he never applied

Bartomeu would have agreed to sanction the player “with 25% of a month’s salary, the amount could rise to more than 300,000 euros” because I hammered produced ‘The Decision’ documentary, in which Griezmann announced he was staying at Athletic for one more year instead of fichar by Barça. To finish, the sanction was never applied “because of the enormous decision-making power of the central and other staff referents”details the ‘BarçaLeaks’ report.
