Barça announced its financial report for the previous fiscal year, and the results showed that Barcelona had a loss of 97 million euros. Affected by the epidemic, the Barcelona economy has fallen into the worst period in team history. In order to weather the economic crisis, Barcelona is preparing to require all staff to cut their salaries.
Western media such as "Aspen" revealed that Barcelona sent a letter to all employees proposing a salary cut. The senior management hopes that in this pay cut, all players will be able to lower their wages, so as to save club expenses.
After the outbreak of the epidemic last season, Barcelona players’ pay cuts were as high as 72%, but they only lasted a few months. In the following summer, Barcelona cleaned Rakitic, Suarez, Vidal and other players, reducing the club's total salary by about 80 million euros.
But this reduction is not enough to get Barcelona out of the economic crisis. The top management hopes that the players can reduce their salaries this season and the entire season. However, in view of the tense relationship between Barcelona's top management and the locker room, this policy is expected to cause waves.
