Barcelona demands financial help from its players
Barcelona’s governing board will meet on Friday. So they can find ways in which the impact of the crisis on the club’s budget remains as small as possible.
Spain is one of the countries most affected in Europe. And since La Liga and the Champions League have been temporarily suspended, Barcelona expects to lose millions of euros during this period.
The Catalan club’s governing board will ask Quique Setien team members to help financially for their club.
Barcelona’s € 61m budget this season has been spent on new transfers. While €507m has been spent on player salaries and a further €135m on debt payments.
Manchester United, meanwhile, have decided to pay non-club workers. Those who were only hired during Old Trafford matches such as security guards and fans.
Even the Red Devils intend to keep this promise even if the Premier League is canceled or matches are held behind closed doors.
“This good gesture reflects the club’s desire to reduce the financial uncertainty that has struck the workforce. As well as a token of appreciation for the workers who have played an important role in the club and served the fans.”- the club said in a statement.
