The FC Barcelona players rebelled because of the request to abandon part of the salary due to pandemic coronavirus. It is reported Sport.
According to the publication, the leadership of the Catalans invited the players to lower the salary due to the suspension of the championship of Spain and reduce the earnings of the club. The club feared to be in crisis due to the spread of the coronavirus. It is noted that some of the players refused the offer.
Dissatisfied felt that the club put himself in this position of failed transfers, which were spent millions of euros. It is assumed that this group includes the highest paid players on the team, but no striker Lionel Messi.
On 25 March it became known that Barcelona can be put on the transfer list eight players. The sale is seen as a option to cover the financial costs due to the pause in the championship of Spain and the termination of the Champions League.
Most football leagues have suspended the draws due to the spread of the coronavirus. About whether to resume competition, is unknown.
