The limit salarial has turned into the main headache of Joan Laporta and company. The club is between the sword and the wall and have to look for solutions urgently

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona crosses a delicate financial situation that affects to all the sectors of the club, without exception. The losses or debts now are not a problem only to go out to the market of signings and achieve the signature of 'cracks', but also to retain to which already are in the staff and inscribe in the same to those players that the culés have achieved to cost zero, being the case of Memphis Depay, Eric García and the 'Kun' Agüero, as well as the one of Emerson Royal (9 millions), but also the case of Leo Messi, the one who left to be Barcelona player the past 1 July.

The big obstacle that has the Barça to complete the registration of the players and so that 'The Flea' sign his new agreement with the club is the limit salarial of the Barcelona entity, the mount that it establishes the patronal like the maximum that can spend the team in question of wages. Joan Laporta had warned that the club has the mass salarial "to 110% of the planned income", by what obviously are excendiendo the figure.

The informations of the last weeks establish that the club will see reduced in 50% his limit salarial, main reason by which in the offices of the Camp Nou work arduously to free the changing room and attain that the 'heavy weights' recess his annual wage, also to the half (as already it has done it Messi in his new agreement). However, for the moment the Barça has not had the results expected and will be missing time, perhaps more than what the barcelonismo wishes, so that the Barça can inscribe to his signings and announce the continuity of Messi.

Like the club has exceeded his ceiling salarial, there is two 'windows' for the culés, a related directly to the registration of the new players and another that would allow to increase the limit salarial. They are two rules that establish in the article 100 of 'Norms of preparation of budget of clubs and SADs', that guide to the barcelonistas to his aim to be able to 'resolve' one of the most important crises that there is right now in the offices of the Camp Nou.

The most known and viable is the norm of the '1 to 4', that establishes that the Barça can invest in a registration the fourth part of what ingresen by a sale or reduction salarial. In this case, it is important to clear (as it has done it Javier Thebes, president of LaLiga) that do not include the income by sponsorships or sale of heritage, in such a case, but only the savings by the exits of players and the discounts that accept the footballers in the staff. For this, also is necessary to highlight that the subject of the amortizaciones is very important for the equation of the team, because no all the operations (especially with the high montos) will be positive.

However, as far as it establishes in the regulation, if the Barça achieves to sell to a player by 4 millions, will be able to use 1 of those to increase his limit and inscribe to a footballer. It is not the only window, but yes the most likely for the culés, due to the fact that the another normative, established in the regulation, is much more complicated to carry out. In that, establishes that "in the case of traspaso of players whose individual cost was at least 5% of the Cost of Staff Inscribible, the percentage to apply will elevate to 50% in said individual cases" and no to 25%.

'Impossible' to fulfil

The true is that it is a rule that is unfeasible for the Barcelona because they would have in the staff (excluding to Leo Messi) four players that would represent individually 5%: Griezmann (34 millions by year, apróximadamente), Philippe Coutinho (24), Gerard Hammered (20) and Sergio Busquets (20). To the two first the Barça looks for him an exit, but the two canteranos will not move of the club.

Although yes, the intention of the culés is 'undo' of them this summer, the possibilities to apply them the rule of 5% is little likely or directly impossible by the amortizaciones. Of Griezmann, for example, have to amortise still 72/81 'kilos' (does not know the real figure), by what if the club arrives him to sell, in such a case, by 80 millions, the profit would be only of 8 'kilos', in case of what subtract are 72. If they are 80, the operation would close with a negative balance (-1).

Nevertheless, it is not a secret for anybody that is impossible that, as it is the market, a team pay this figure by the French forward. Much less by 'Cou', by which remain for amortising around 45 millions and whose available price is priced in 20 'kilos', maximum, by what probably his exit will not save at all for the limit salarial.
