FC Barcelona star Sergio Busquets has criticised the club for its media antics amid reports that some of the team's senior players could see their wages reduced. 

With Barca's financial struggles well-known in the public domain, reports in Spain have suggested that several senior players at the club could once again be set for salary reductions.

Versatile star Sergi Roberto has already accepted a 60% pay cut as he gets ready to sign a contract extension at the Camp Nou, per Barca Universal.

Other senior players in the side, including Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, and Busquets, could be next in line.

However, the latter has now voiced his frustration at finding out about such things through the press instead of from the club itself.

"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 while on international duty with Spain, according to 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."
