MD: Messi also asked for pay sacrifice, possible Barça lawsuits

FC Barcelona‘s difficult financial situation continues to dominate Spanish sports newspapers. According to Mundo Deportivo, Lionel Messi is not the only player to make a wage offering and could even come to a number of lawsuits.
Messi is formally clubleless, but a new commitment is ready for him, half of his previous salary. However, he can’
t sign them until Barça has his household books in order. According to Mundo Deportivo, the club has asked a few more culture guards to hand in: Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto are not unwilling, negotiations with Jordi Alba are a little more difficult, reports MD.
In the meantime, the Catalans hope to sell a few players to save extra salary. Samuel Umtiti and Miralem Pjanic have already received an offer to leave transfer free — despite their ongoing contracts — but have not made use of them yet. If there is no news on this front before August 15, Barcelona would even be forced to go to court. The club will soon face Matheus Fernandes: the Brazilian abuse contract was dissolved at the end of June, but he filed an indictment.
