The Barcelona management expects to negotiate a salary cut with a number of players. Reported by the Spanish edition Diario sport…
The main goal of Barcelona’s management is to negotiate salary cuts with the highest paid players. We are talking about forwards Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho.
The blue garnet have already reached an agreement on the revision of the contract with defender Gerard Piqué. Now the Barcelona bosses are in talks with three other top players – Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto. The players are expected to meet the club halfway, and this will serve as an example for the rest.
The blue garnet are experiencing financial troubles that began in 2020. It was reported that Barcelona suffered losses in the amount of more than 400 million euros at the end of last season.
On August 5, the blue garnet announced that Argentine striker Lionel Messi was leaving the team. The club was unable to agree on a contract with the player due to the financial fair play rules established in the Spanish championship. Messi joined PSG, signing a two-year contract with the French club, with the possibility of an extension for another season.
