All the European sportive competitions have had to stop because of the grave sanitary crisis that has caused the coronavirus. In the football, the affectation has produced so much in the domestic leagues of each country as in the international competitions like the Champions League or the Europe League. The period of suspension seems that it will lengthen several weeks and, to day of today, there is not date of return.
Of course, the arrest of the competitions has left to the clubs in a tremendously delicate situation in the economic section. Big part of the income of the entities proceed of the television rights and of the sale of entrances, two concepts by which, suddenly, have left to earn.

Another part of the changing room comprises the delicate situation and considers acceptable the application of the discount salarial proposal by the directive of the FC Barcelona. Still no hanbrían given the 'OK' definite since would be studying the agreements, but the predisposition to observe the proposals of Bsrtomeu is good.

According to the informations desveladas by the Chain Cope, the AFE would have gathered with the League to arrive to an agreement in the case that the league did not restart before 30 June because of the sanitary crisis by the coronavirus, something that would carry to the footballers to go down the wage a ten percent.
