Barcelona is in dire straits as players are taken to court over voluntary cuts in pay and at the same time face the unimaginable danger of being sold to private owners.
Barcelona may be off to a strong start to the season, but the backstage is a mess. The club ‘s leadership faces a vote of no confidence and, if that happens, President Josep Bartomeu and his colleagues will be fired because the club is poor in terms of results and financial difficulties. Over the years, the awful shortfall created by the Covid-19 outbreak has been combined with unreasonable spending.
Recently, however, the question of arbitration was discussed at the Nou Camp. According to the Spanish press, Barcelona is having a dispute with workers, including players, after they have planned to cut 30% of the salaries of all employees. Sources say that the plan is being finalized to be enforced in three weeks ‘ time, although it seems that Barca did so willingly without the approval of the other party.
Barca’s leadership declared a pay reduction a week ago, because it was important to rapidly solve the financial shortfall faced by the club. The release of the announcement without agreement with the employees ‘representatives and the players’ representatives has caused dissatisfaction, and the players are now requiring management to account directly with them.
Previously, there was evidence that Barca players could willingly cancel their contracts if Barca had arbitrarily broken the terms of the deal, contributing to an unprecedented likelihood that Lionel Messi would still be allowed to resign. The squad has gone to Man City without being sued. However, in the event that the players win the lawsuit and compel Barca to comply with the deal, this would lead to an unimaginable event.
