The Lionel Messi contract situation with the Catalan giants has been a source of headlines all over the world, and Barcelona's financial situation is well documented following reports emerging of their mounting debt.

The Catalan giants need to immediately reduce their high wage bill, a situation which has made it difficult for them to extend Messi's contract, while also ensuring that they are unable to register the new signings they have made so far.

The LaLiga authorities want Barcelona to stick within the salary cap mandated by them and Marca now claim that despite the blow of losing Messi to other leagues around the world - they have no intention of bending the rules in order to help the Catalan giants.

The report goes on to state that there are three reasons why LaLiga wont change their stance, with the first being that in order to change the rules, they would have to propose a new regulation on economic control and it would then have to be voted upon by all the clubs in La Liga, which looks unlikely at the moment.

Secondly, the league do not want to find themselves like clubs in Ligue 1 and Serie A when it comes to the revenue lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that they are determined to toe the line and remain fiscally responsible.

Lastly, the fact that Barcelona are still committed to the European Super League makes it difficult to sympathize with them, with the authorities not too happy with the move taken by the Spanish giants.

This ensures that the Catalan outfit have no other way than to lower their wage bill in order to keep the record six-time Ballon d'Or award winner at the club for the foreseeable future.
