FC Barcelona is going through a difficult economic situation that limits all sectors of the club and leaves very little room for action
Turn off a fire to attend another. Like this it is the day in day out in a FC Barcelona submerged in a deep and delicate economic crisis that affects to all the sectors of the club and that, without place to doubts, conditions all the decisions that can or not taking of face to the immediate future. They are many the problems, folders of urgent and fires for turning off. And in this point, the realism is essential.
The market of signings estival of the Barça was the perfect proof that the things do not walk badly, but fatal. The club, if it did not give off of two of his big stars, Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann, could not think inthe futur or, or at least in a 'break' economic in these months. It is true that could act distinct, before... But the reality is that, in a situation like this, the measures have to be drastic.
Joan Laporta is headed by all this process and is the one who goes carry the 'sticks' of all the barcelonismo, that begins to be disappointed. Has in his against all the promises that did in his campaign, in which it cost that it was the only able to renew to Messi, to recover to the Barça prompt... Todo This remained in words and surely had to be more precavido to the moment to speak, because without numbers in hand already knew the complicated situation of the culés.
There are not doubts, in any case, that the 'presi' is working to achieve the best results and keep to a Barça drowned in debts to float, by very impossible that was, but in this point it is necessary to be realistic: they can come time very difficult. Until it does at all, the economic situation no 'affected' to the first team, but the things are very distinct now and how has remained the staff, without 'cracks' of world-wide size, is the first proof.
With debts of 1300 million euros, losses of 481 'kilos' in the past exercise and a mass salarial in the clouds, in addition to the others so many problems, the margin of action is very little. It was the one who was that it was in the 'throne' of the offices of the Camp Nou and was impossible 'revolutionise' to the team, of the form that the Barcelona expected, with the accounts in red and without opportunities to generate significant income.
Could do the better or different things? Probably yes. The barcelonismo does not forget that, some days after Laporta announced that the mass salarial supposed 110% of the planned income, announced the signing of the Kun Agüero, Eric García, Emerson Royal (another subject) or Memphis Depay... Without before have reduced the mass salarial or ensure the permanence of Messi.
For I satisfy, shortly after it aimed that the Barça expected fichar to three or four players more (Once again speaking for speaking?). To all this, it is necessary to add him that does less than two months was when from the directive asked to the 'heavy weights' go down the wage, when it was something that could have negotiated from May and that would have facilitated all, probably.
Moment very different
It would be necessary to be inside to know the reality, but is true that all what happens in Can Barça is conditioned by a factor: the money and that, as they are the things, surely this season the first team can not opt to big things. What himself is true, and very necessary, is that the transparency exist and the partners and fans know the reality. That they do not exist false promises, because to this point is not possible to put a band in the eyes and say: "the Barça can fichar to Haaland" or any star. It is impossible, at least by the next two years.
