Barcelona has rolled out another plan to reduce the wages of their employees.
However, this wage reduction might not affect the first team players much, but will mainly be directed at the regular employees.
Barcelona has reportedly suffered a loss of £88 million just this week due to the coronavirus pandemic. Overall, Barca’s losses have amounted up to €488m in June 2020, according to Spanish outlet Marca. Their players have already taken a pay cut, but the Catalan club is to reduce wages even further.
Barcelona vice president Jordi Moix has spoken about how these wage cuts will be planned, so as to avoid laying anyone off from their jobs in the future.
“This is an exceptional situation and we have to look for solutions in the club to balance the budget in the best possible way
“Avoiding job losses in the future is what we must prioritise.”
Just this Wednesday, it was further revealed that Barcelona would allow their players to leave for free if salary cuts were made for them without having their full permission.
“The reduction is not necessarily for the players, it is possible that there will be mixed formulas for different,” Moix told radio station RAC1, via Diario Sport.
“Contracts can be adapted following sporting criteria, proportionality criteria and sporting circumstances.
