Barcelona FC issued an official statement on their official website, in which they clarified the position of the team players and their Argentine captain Messi about the problem with the salaries of players in the world, especially the major European leagues because of the difficult conditions the country is going through due to the outbreak of the Coruna virus.

The club said in an official statement: "The club announces a 70% reduction in player salaries with an additional contribution from the players themselves so that all employees of the club receive their full salaries."

This came in response to some news that Barcelona players refused to reduce their salaries to face the major crisis against Spanish clubs due to the suspension of the league, which is led by Barcelona.
