Members of Barcelona's first-team squad are reportedly willing to take pay cuts in order to help the Catalan giants during the coronavirus outbreak.

Barcelona officials have allegedly held talks with the first-team squad regarding wage cuts over the coming months.

Before the coronavirus outbreak, numerous reports had alluded to the Catalan giants being required to lower their outgoings if they wanted to make significant additions during the next transfer window.

Given the current uncertainty and the postponement of matches leading to a reduction in expected income, AS claims that the Barcelona board have felt the need to hold conversations with their senior players.

The report says that president Josep Maria Bartomeu has spoken to the likes of Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi, who are happy to work with the club's hierarchy to find a solution for all concerned.

Specifics regarding the financial cuts are unlikely to be confirmed until La Liga and UEFA make further announcements regarding the short-term futures of the respective competitions.
