Barca is going through the most difficult period in history. The huge salary fund makes it impossible for them to register new recruits and sign a new contract with Messi. Regulations in La Liga do not allow clubs to exceed the prescribed salary fund.
To balance Barca decided to convince the players to reduce wages. However, not all players agree with this proposal of the Catalan team. It is known that Antoine Griezmann, Samuel Umtiti, Miralem Pjanic are the players who refuse to take a pay cut.
Pique leads the “wage reduction association” in Barca
However, that is not all, the club still has players who act philanthropically, ready to share difficulties. Earlier, the Barca homepage announced that the duo Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay were registered to play after Pique accepted a salary reduction.
Most recently, Pique revealed that all the players on the staff, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto, have all had acts of kindness:
“I realized that was what I needed to do. I contacted the other captains and they agreed to the same. It’s only a matter of time,” Pique said after Barca’s 4-2 victory over Real Sociedad in the first round of La Liga.
“We are a family. Jordi Alba’s whistling fans may be stemming from a misunderstanding. I contacted three other captains, with Roberto, Busquets and Alba, and they all wanted a pay cut from the start.
With more players accepting salary reductions, Barca will accelerate the progress of salary structure so that other players, such as Sergio Aguero, can soon be registered.

Barca’s staff has a philanthropic action
In addition to convincing players to reduce wages, Barca is also planning to liquidate players. Samuel Umtiti, Miralem Pjanic and Philippe Coutinho are among the players on the team’s liquidation list.
However, it is difficult for teams to approach these three players due to the high salary requirements. In the context of the Covid-19 epidemic, which has exhausted the club’s finances, they are not willing to spend large sums of money on disappointing names at Barca.
