According to Le Parisien, Luis Campos and PSG have established a progressive salary structure that rewards matches played. It appears that Marco Verratti’s extension was the test pilot of this new compensation, but not the last. This new approach involves indexing a portion of the player’s salary to the number of matches they participate in throughout the season. Verratti extended his contract until 2026 in December. However, the financial details of this unique agreement have not been disclosed.
According to the piece, Luis Campos intends to apply this policy to future contracts and extensions, including those of Marquinhos and Milan Skriniar. The percentage of salary increase will vary depending on the number of matches played and the stage of the competition. PSG has been plagued by missing stars in big games over the last decade, but it is hard to say If this type of contract would have made a difference in those cases. It is also yet to be seen if this type of contract could detour future recruits.
