Sergio Busquets and the FC Barcelona keep pausadas the negotiations on a new readjustment salarial that allow to the club resolve his problems with the limit salarial of LaLiga to inscribe to Jules Koundé, only of the signings that has not been able to inscribe for the beginning of LaLiga. Although the intention of the captain is to help to the institution, the terms of the that would be his fourth readjustment of wage do not finish to convince him.

For 'Busi', recess again his index card translates in extending automatically his agreement with the Barça, which culminates in June of 2023. The initial plans of the of Sabadell aim to abandon Catalonia the next summer, already with 35 years and leave to the MLS, probably to play with the Inter of Miami. There it could coincide, hypothetically, with Leo Messi, as long as the 'crack' Argentinian descarte the option to renew by a season more with Paris Saint-Germain.

And it is that, as far as it offers him the Barça to Busquets, to the captain would not remain him of another that renew his agreement by one or two years so that the club have sufficient margin of diferimiento for his emolumentos. Of the contrary, LaLiga can consider the negotiation like an artimaña and apply sanctions to the club. The same occurs with Gerard Hammered, the one who already accepted to recess his index card the year happened to be able to inscribe to Eric García and Memphis Depay, reinforcements of the past summer.

The central already had renewed agreement in the middle of the pandemia of the COVID-19 in 2020 until the summer of 2024, whereas Sergio had followed suit in 2018 by five seasons, a lot before the economic disaster in which it finished the management of Josep Bartomeu. Now, the only way in which 'Busi' go viable to accept a new discount salarial is if the managerial guarantees him can go out in 2023, something improcedente for the finances of the club.

The legal frame of LaLiga will not accept discounts without renewals

For the moment, the option of the discounts salariales of Busquets and Hammered are paralysed because LaLiga will not accept to differ his wages if the players do not have valid agreement. Of the contrary, the wage differed in other years would compute in the current campaign, with which there would be possibility to adjust to the 'fair play' financial. Thus, for Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany, the most viable option aims to sell players.

It is as well as the name of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has gone out to the market in the last days. The gabonés could leave around 30 million euros in box if it leaves to Chelsea and would allow to the club save 18 'kilos' in his wage, sufficient to be able to inscribe to Koundé. The ideal for the managerial would be to sell to Frenkie of Jong, as his exit would leave some 70M of net euros of gain, but the Dutch has blocked, up to now, any option to leave to the Manchester United and to the same Chelsea.
