Barcelona need to offer Lionel Messi £170m to keep the Argentine genius at the Nou Camp.
Reports below show the cause of their financial issues.
Messi's current contract indicates he is costing Barcelona €1.3m a week, while Antoine Griezmann is a staggering €880,000-a-week.
Shockingly, unutilised players Miralem Pjanic and Philippe Coutinho are earning €8,400,000 and €8,580,000 respectively.
Barcelona can't register Aguero, Depay or any of their new signings after exceeding the La Liga salary cap :moneybag:
With reported wages like this, we're not shocked :flushed:
Griezmann - 881k/w
De Jong - 400k/w
Dembele - 230k/w
And they still need to find room for Messi's new contract pic.twitter.com/RLjHIy3evk

Rumours suggest that Barcelona need to shed €200m in order to balance their finances.
A number of stars have been linked with moves away from the Nou Camp, including Samuel Umtiti, Pjanic, Coutinho, Clement Lenglet, Sergi Roberto and Martin Braithwaite.
:exclamation:Barcelona sent a letter of freedom to Miralem Pjanić and Samuel Umtiti.
• What the club wanted is that the players do not collect the remaining wages of the contract at Barcelona and give the player the option to terminate their contracts. #FCB :flag_ba:x:flag_fr:

Unsurprisingly, the majority of the wage-cutting is to secure a deal to keep Messi.
A lot lies on Ronald Koeman after Barcelona finished third in the La Liga behind Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
