The economic situation at Barcelona is dire. The club is currently unable to make signings, not only due to its financial constraints, but also because it exceeds the salary cap imposed by LaLiga.
Aside from closing sales of a few players, Joan Laporta's board of directors are seriously considering proposing a further reduction in wages of its players. That alternative has already been discussed openly by the president and his leaders, and it appears to be becoming more likely by the day. However, the club has not yet informed the primary stakeholders of the situation. The institution has not provided any direct information to Xavi's squad.
The Catalan club intend to hasten the departures of several key players in the squad in the coming days, before the end of June, to make place for already signed players like Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen. However, it is unlikely that the wage bill will be cut enough for next season even in this manner.
"Mateu [Alemany] did a great job. We were very optimistic with the budget, we have lowered [it by] more than 150 million euros. We are on a good path but it's not enough. We have a 560 million euro wage bill. Bayern [Munich] have 300 [million euros] for example, and Real Madrid are close to 400. The salaries are totally disproportionate and inflated," Eduard Romeu, Barcelona's economic vice-president, said on RAC1 Radio on Friday.
Laporta plans to speak with the players and come up with a solution that isn't universal or sequential. Only the uppermost senior players will be affected. The professionals involved, on the other hand, have yet to hear from the club.
In any case, the players believe they have already put in a significant amount of effort from a financial standpoint. They are aware of the club's circumstances, but the board will have to explain and justify such a dramatic move. The Blaugrana want to sign Robert Lewandowski and half-a-dozen other players, so the players are being asked to make another sacrifice.
