THE BARÇA, WITH A LOT TO DO
Barça's list of priorities before the summer transfer market
Although at FC Barcelona they intend to go out on the transfer market to strengthen Xavi Hernández's squad, first they will have to considerably lower their salary mass and process the registrations of a few players in LaLiga
In the last months has done a lot of upsetting in that the FC Barcelona has to reduce his mass salarial to fulfil with the parameters of the 'fair play' financial of LaLiga. Around the middle of the month of February, confirmed the reduction in seven million euros of the limit salarial, that remained in €648.824.000 after the market of wintry signings. Although it was a 'discount' minimum regarding the mount with which began the season, the patronal warned that in summer the history would be much more complicated.
The 'drama' of the Barça with the 'fair play' financial carries long and from LaLiga have left clear that will not do grantings so that the Barcelona can inscribe to his 'new' footballers if before they do not recess, of drastic way, his mass salarial. The culés have to reduce in 200 million euros for, afterwards, think in the signings and registrations of players: renewed and new incorporations. Of there that it suppose a hard task for the sportive direction do the works, in these months, before scheduling the next season.
The pending tasks of the FC Barcelona
As we mentioned before, the main mission of the Barça is to reduce his mass salarial and this will cause that they have a lot of cuts of costs in the club. In fact, this Monday desveló that the Board of Joan Laporta had asked an Audioría to all the areas of the club to know the current situation and see of where can reduce costs. It foresees that in the section of basketball there is a descent in the wages, but where more will have effects and changes is with the staff of the first team.
It is not a secret for anybody that big part of the income of the club 'spend' in the wages of the footballers and that, right now, lyou wages rise to the 648 million euros and the intention is that they do not surpass the 450 'kilos'. For this, obligatoriamente have to exist sales and, besides, discounts salariales considerable. It would not go in in consideration the possible renewal to the drop of Busquets, because it would be an agreement 'new', by what will try negotiate, in principle, with Marc-André ter Stegen and Frenkie of Jong.
The registrations of the players, in the air
Until the Barça do not achieve to recess his mass salarial, to go in in the parameters of LaLiga, will be of hands tied with the rest of operations; call renewals or signings (paying or of free agents...). In this sense, players that already have 'renewed', like Gavi, Ronald Araújo, Marcos Alonso or Sergi Roberto, whose valid agreements to the eyes of LaLiga will win on 30 June, will leave to be in the staff of Xavi Hernández of official way.
The Barça has to recess his mass salarial and inscribe his new agreements, that in the case of Gavi and Araújo include a significant increase of wage. Until then, they will be free agents and can negotiate with any team, if it arrives the case. The two are the priority of the sportive direction and, after they are registered, will happen to inscribe to Alonso, Sergi Roberto... And if they renewed Busquets and Iñaki Crag.
Pending renewals in the Barça
Once completed the registrations of the footballers that already have renewed or that culminate agreement in this summer, the Barça would look for, as 'Sportive World', extend the bonds of the players that would be free agents in 2024: Alejandro Balde and Ousmane Dembélé. The club bets by the continuity of both and the intention would be to tie them from this same season, especially by the clause that would allow to the French go out this summer by 50 million euros, a quite accessible price.
With the left side there is agreement from does months, but has not been able to sign by the problems with the 'fair play' and because, in theory, there is not an imperial need to concretise his renewal immediately, as yes it happened with Gavi or Araújo. The agreement is slope of the signature, but foresees that it will arrive during the summer. With Dembélé, it will be necessary to expect.
