Negative Barcelona negotiations
She explained, that the meeting came out with a negative result, contrary to the desire of the administration, as the players’ agents have all refused to reduce the salaries of their clients.
The newspaper added, that the Barcelona administration made two offers to the four players, the first of which was to reduce their wages, but they refused, through their agents, so that the club had to present the second offer, which is to negotiate the renewal of their contracts in an attempt to save what can be saved.

And she continued, “At the present time, things have frozen in light of the players’ rejection of the idea of reducing wages, while the coming days will witness the intervention of Barcelona Chairman Joan Laporta to try to persuade the players.”
Laporta said in a statement on the famous Spanish “El Chiringuito” program, “Everything is going well and for the new Lionel Messi contract, but it needs some patience and everything will be completed within the next few days.”
The Spanish League, “La Liga,” headed by Javier Tebas, has not yet confirmed its approval of Messi’s new contract with Barcelona, and the extent to which this is compatible with the Financial Fair Play Law.
