FC Barcelona Salaries & Contracts 2023-24: Lewandowski, De Jong, Koundé & More

Last Updated: September 14, 2023
How big is the FC Barcelona wage bill? Check out Boardroom’s full rundown of the player salaries and contracts on the books at Camp Nou for 2023-24.

The post-Lionel Messi era got off to a difficult start at FC Barcelona two years ago. It wasn’t just because of the departure of the club’s all-time, undisputed legend; it was also a crippling debt crisis that forced the club to make several difficult roster decisions while searching for creative revenue solutions to keep the lights on and the wheels turning.

In 2022-23, however, the Catalan outfit raced to its first La Liga title in four years, notably besting longtime rivals Real Madrid. That’s thanks to 23 goals from superstar striker Robert Lewandowski and consistent stalwart performances from a familiar face in goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen and ascendant phenoms like Pedri and Joules Kondé, the two of whom combine to be just 39 years of age as of this writing.

And one look at the spending ledger this year suggests that not only are the Blaugrana poised to make another run for a trophy or two this season, but that the worst of their financial crisis is behind them.

Check out Boardroom’s full rundown of the Barcelona salaries and contracts on the books for 2023-24, as well as the club’s overall wage bill for the campaign.
