Barcelona captain Sergio Busquets has made his displeasure known about the way the club has communicated the player wage slashes that are reportedly set to take place at the Camp Nou.
The Catalan giants are in the midst of a monumental financial crisis, and are doing everything within their means to salvage the situation.
It has been reported that the Blaugrana are now set to cut some senior players' wages as the Barca hierarchy look for more ways to navigate these dire circumstances.
Club captain Busquets, however, is unhappy with the club for not communicating the potential wage cuts directly with the players, with the midfielder finding out through the media.
Busquets was asked about reports of salary reductions ahead of Spain's UEFA Nations League clash against Switzerland on Thursday night, and urged club president Joan Laporta to be more mindful of the players when it comes to news of this nature.
"I've heard a lot of things being said, and when I come back from holiday, I don't know what they will tell me," he said at a press conference, as per Marca.
"I would like them to tell me and not find out from somewhere else, but I'm always willing to help.
"They haven't proposed anything to us, they haven't told us anything beyond what we hear from you [the press].
"It's not the best decision to do it through the press, it's always better to be direct and face to face."
A lot of Barca's transfer strategy for the upcoming window revolves around securing players on free transfers given the club's financial predicament, with the likes of Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen reportedly headed to the Camp Nou.
Should those players become Barca's newest additions, they might have to join the club having taken significant pay cuts, if reports are to be believed.
The same could be true for eight-time LaLiga champion Busquets. Soon set to enter the final year of his current contract, the 33-year-old would likely have to take a reduced wage package should he wish to continue at the club he has spent his entire career with.
