After the huge crisis that caused the possible departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona, there is a meeting that cannot be postponed any longer: Messi’s reunion with Josep Mara Bartomeu. The president will have to sit down with the 10 to begin negotiating the steps to follow and according to Cuatro, Messi will receive an unexpected request.
“The accounting closing of the 2019-2020 campaign held by La Liga informs that the Blaugrana team has presented a loss of 98 million of euros. A complex economic moment that was also concealed with the 72 millionth sale of Arthur Melo“says Four.
In this context, Barcelona needs to reduce the wage bill and that begins with the request to the players for a significant reduction in their annual chips, among which Leo Messi is in the top positions.
Currently, Leo Messi will be charging a figure close to 50 million euros and Barcelona needs a break in that regard, although many indicate that it is not the time.
