Barcelona will cut their scouting department in half as part of a restructuring operation. 

The department employs approximately 40 members but only 15-20 are expected to survive the restructuring.

The majority of those working in the department are out of contract at the end of June and won't have their terms renewed.

Many of the scouts have been furloughed since March, when La Liga was indefinitely suspended and Barca acted to deal with the financial consequences of the coronavirus.
