FC Barcelona star Nikola Mirotic is not willing to accept a salary cut, due to the financial problems of the club.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Mirotic has no intention to agree to a salary cut offer made by FC Barcelona.

The veteran forward has one of the most lucrative contracts in the EuroLeague, even though details have not been revealed by the team.

The football section of FC Barcelona is dealing with severe financial issues, which have affected the basketball roster, too.

As a result, all players have been requested to accept a salary cut, as the club is attempting to reduce the budget.

Despite those issues, FC Barcelona still has one of the best rosters in the EuroLeague.

The Catalans will start the season this weekend, when they will face Valencia in the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup on Saturday.
