Barcelona plan to force pay cuts on heavyweight players refuse to leave. But there are no indications as to how this could occur.
Barca are hopeful of selling several ‘heavyweight’ players of the dressing room and will attempt to enforce pay cuts on those who refuse to leave.
Cadena Ser say that incoming boss Ronald Koeman and sporting director Eric Abidal have been placed in charge of ‘cleaning up’ the first-team squad at Camp Nou.
Striker Luis Suarez, left-back Jordi Alba and central midfielder Ivan Rakitic are among three of the highest earners who the club are hopeful of moving on this summer. There are doubts on any other clubs being able to afford their wages.
The club will encourage all three to leave the club and if they refuse an exit, the club will then manoeuvre to impose a salary cut. Although there are no indications as to how this could occur.
