Major Blow as LaLiga Order Barcelona to Reduce Wage Bill by £28million

  Liga have ordered Barcelona to reduce their wage bill by £28million, SportsMail reports. Last November, the Catalan club was hit with a sizeable deduction, when it dropped by around £250million in the wake of the financial pressures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. LaLiga president, Javier Tebas, claimed at the time that salary cuts were necessary to bring down the “excessive spending”, as supporters are still unable to attend matches. But LaLiga have now ordered Barcelona to reduce their spending on wages even further. They have been asked to bring their budget down from €380m (£328m) to €347m (£300m), a reduction of nine per cent.
