After reaching an agreement with club captains Busquets, Piqué, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto -- although Roberto is not yet official -- to cut their pay, Barcelona are now asking other players to adjust their salaries.

According to a report on Esport3 on Friday, the club will meet with Samuel Umtiti, Philippe Coutinho and Neto nect to discuss wage reductions.

The cited media add that when the club first suggested pay cuts due to the drop in income caused by the pandemic, only two players voted against: Neto and Coutinho.

Remember that Neto's wanted to leave the club for months in search of regular football, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen blocking his path at Camp Nou.

Coutinho, meanwhile, who has a much bigger salary, has had a tough experience since joining Barça, including whistles, injuries and a loan spell with Bayern Munich.

In both cases, the situation is not advanced. In fact, Esport3 say both are still reticent to accept a pay cut.

In contrast, the club are more optimistic about Umtiti, who earns 16 million euros gross per season. The Frenchman refused to leave in the summer but is ready to adapt his salary.
