Barcelona are set to sack three top earners, including Busquets, in a bid to cut £150m from the massive £546m payroll

SERGIO BUSQUETS will be among the casualties if Barcelona sack three of their top-paid players.

It comes as Barcelona are looking to restore financial stability within the club after a turbulent summer.

The midfield general is expected to be joined by defenders Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique on the cutting board.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Barcelona bosses want to cut clubs’ salaries by a further £150m.

The current bill is a whopping £546million with the target amount being between £376million and £402million.

The trio of Barca captains all have great deals at the club but while Busquets remains a key figure, Alba and Pique have been sidelined.

The trio has over 1,700 performances combined and a huge amount of trophies to boot.

However, with the new direction the club is pursuing under Xavi’s guidance, their days are numbered.

The £145million summer spending was funded in part by the restructuring of the club’s debt and the future sale of the club’s TV rights.

This capital movement allowed the club to raise the funds to bring on a host of new stars, including Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde and Raphinha.

While the loss of three well-loved veterans will be a major blow to the club and its fanbase, they could be mollified by the return of Lionel Messi.

Barcelona’s economic vice-president revealed that the Argentine’s return is economically feasible amid speculation about the striker’s future.

SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this week that Messi has no concrete offers on the table at the moment.
