Another crisis is around Barcelona’s corner as Lionel Messi and other first team players turned down the club’s decision to cut down wages due to financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Due to the effect of the pandemic, the Catalan club was among other teams around the world to cut staff wages.

It is understood that Barça is proposing up to a 30 percent cut from each player’s earnings as the players are prepared to send the board a burofax about their decision.

According to Marca recently, Barcelona’s debt rose from €217million in June 2019 to €488million 12 months later.

He said via Dario Sport and cited in Soccer Laduma:

“The reduction is not necessarily for the players, it is possible that there will be mixed formulas for different.

“Contracts can be adapted following sporting criteria, proportionality criteria and sporting circumstances.

“This is an exceptional situation and we have to look for solutions in the club to balance the budget in the best possible way “Avoiding job losses in the future is what we must prioritise.”

Meanwhile, FrujuSports had previously reported that Antoine Griezmann is planning to leave Barcelona following his row with Messi.
