The coronavirus outbreak is going to mess with all world football. The first big move will be made by Barcelona. The club decided to decrease the salaries of all its athletes (including the main football team) and the related sports departments. The information is from ‘Sport’, from Catalonia.
The salary reduction will be 70% and will occur with or without an agreement, having retroactive character since the first day of the quarantine (March 19). As soon as the coronavirus outbreak ends, employees will have their salaries normalized.

The decision would already be causing problems among football and basketball athletes. Everything indicates that they would accept a 30% reduction in dividends. It is worth remembering that Spain already has more than 47 thousand registered cases of coronavirus and more than 3 thousand deaths.
