Barcelona is one of the richest club in world, earning close to 800m Euros per year
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, many football clubs are struggling to pay their employees, and many workers has been dismissed.
Club now finds it hard to pay employees, as no funds were generated.
Most Spanish football players earn a monthly salary, referred to as the sueldo, plus two larger annual payments six months apart known as the ficha. It is not clear whether the reduction would apply only to the sueldo or to the ficha as well. Four monthly payments remain outstanding this season.
Barcelona’s economic situation is precarious and there are concerns the club may not be able to meet some of their payments if the season is not completed. Of an annual budget of €1.047bn (£970m), 66% was spent on wages last season, down from 70% the season before but considered too high. The projection was 61% this season but that target is now unlikely to be met.
Player whose initial earning is £100 will now pocket £30, until the pandemic is over.
