Neither were particularly keen to slash their incomings after less than a year at the club

Barça's sporting management, together with the financial managers, continue to work intensively on reducing the wage bill, which, as is public knowledge, must be reduced by 200 million to comply with La Liga's Fair Play rules. Although some of the solutions needed to achieve this objective have been planned, most of them have not yet been implemented. 

The effort that the club is asking for goes in all directions and no type of scenario is ruled out, which is why those in charge of the club are not missing any opportunity to try to cut back. No one is escaping a policy of essential cuts so that Barça can continue to build a winning project.
