Lionel Messi and Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu are at it again as the 57-year-old has reportedly told the forward to accept another pay cut.
The Catalans, like most other clubs across the globe, are facing financial challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Also, the Blaugrana are facing a major problem after over 18,000 have already passed a vote of no confidence in the administrator as reported by Everythingbarca.com.
The publication further reveals that the signatures demanding the president’s resignation will soon hit 20,000 and even more.
Barca are due to elect a new leader next year, but with Bartomeu’s administration already winding down, he has not stopped harassing the squad and in particular, Messi.
Sources claim the players have been informed to take another pay cut in a bid to cope with the losses incurred during the COVID-19.
The same exercise was carried out last season and it generated loads of controversies as several senior players bashed the club on social media for stating that the players were not willing to accept a pay cut.
