Reports in the media suggest that Barcelona will be asking football legend, Lionel Messi to take a pay cut. The Catalan club has been hit by the effect of coronavirus on the economy.

The 33-year-old had recently submitted a transfer request to leave the club after almost two decades. However, he decided to suspend this request to avoid going into a legal dispute with the club.

The president of the club, Josep Bartomeu is set to schedule a meeting with the Captain where issues at the club will be discussed. The Barcelona chief will be suggesting that the club legend takes a pay cut for the 20-21 season to lighten the financial burden of the club.

Reports from Express show that Lionel Messi currently earns a whopping £988,000 weekly at the club. This amount doesn’t include bonuses and other income for image rights.
