Payet will slash his reported monthly salary of 500,000 euros in half next season, then by 30% the following season and 40-60% for the two extra years on his new contract.

PARIS — Marseille’s club president praised playmaker Dimitri Payet for accepting a significant pay cut when signing a new two-year deal until 2024.

In addition, the 33-year-old former France international agreed to waive any bonuses linked to qualifying for European competition and to lower his salary even further between 2022-24 if he is not a regular starter in games. It represents a considerable change in position from Payet, who initially said that he was opposed to lowering his salary. Back in April, cash-strapped Marseille asked key players to help the club cope with the financial fallout from the coronavirus pandemic which brought an early end to the season.

Payet was Marseille’s best player in a shortened season, scoring 12 goals in 27 games overall and helping it finish in second place in the league to qualify automatically for next season’s Champions League — a massive boost for the heavily indebted club amid its financial difficulties.
