Messi makes Haaland sacrifice

Lionel Messi has reportedly agreed to take a pay cut at Barcelona on the condition that the club use the cash saving to fund a bid for Erling Haaland.

The Argentine forward is by far and away Barca’s highest earner, raking in around £500,000 per week in basic salary alone, with incentives and bonus payments almost doubling it.

Given his age and Barcelona’s crippling financial problems, a similar agreement is not possible for Messi’s renewal, but according to EuroSport, he has told Laporta he is happy to accept a smaller salary if the club show ambition by launching a bid for Haaland.

Borussia Dortmund Haaland has jumped to the top of Barca’s shortlist amid his impressive performances this season, with Messi keen to link up with the youngster at the Nou Camp.
