Barcelona will have to cut their players’ salaries to be able to keep Lionel Messi should he agree to renew his contract with the Catalan club, LaLiga president Javier Tebas said on Monday.

 “Barcelona, with the wage bill they have today, are exceeding (the cap). In order for him to incorporate Messi, there will have to be reductions in player salaries,” Tebas said during the presentation of LaLiga’s Economic-Financial Report.EFE
