The 'stage' in Germany is key for the immediate future of the FC Barcelona and the directors, beside Ronald Koeman, find working to find solutions
In the FC Barcelona there is not time that lose. August is a key month for the immediate future of the club and from the offices work so that it do not escape any detail regarding the operations that -probably- will carry out during the next weeks regarding the 'operation gone out', the limit salarial, the discounts of the wages of the 'heavy weights' and the registration of the new signings of the Barça, included Leo Messi.
They are the commonplaces that predominate in the meetings of the Barcelona and that this week have moved to Germany, where the Barça continues preparing the season 2021-2022. Joan Laporta, president of the club, remained in Barcelona, but has sent to Rafa Yuste, sportive vice-president, and Mateu Alemany, director of football, to supervise all what sucede with the first team and work, from earths germanas, in the sales, cessions and traspasos of players.
It has not been the only that have gone to do the directors. As they have informed 'SPORT' and 'ACE', also had foreseen to gather with Ronald Koeman in the end of the day of this Thursday to argue some points and keep to the Dutch trainer to the so much of all the decisions that were taking of face to the beginning of the exercise 2021-22. Like this then , the Hero of Wembley also had foreseen to present his letters on the table.
Between the points more keys, as it aims 'ACE', is the imperial need to lighten the mass salarial, reason by which the Barça insists in the sale of footballers like Samuel Umtiti and Miralem Pjanic (are in Germany), as well as Philippe Coutinho, the one who is in the last stretch of his recovery after suffering an injury in the meniscus of his knee to finals of the month of December of 2020. The intention of Yuste and Alemany would be to follow closely the evolution of this type of footballers and have the support 'extra' of Koeman.
Another subject that is on the table is the one of the discount salarial of Gerard Hammered, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto and Sergio Busquets, the 'holy cows' of the changing room, to those who the club has asked them the effort 'extra' to go down the wage in 50%. Until the moment, the negotiations with the agents of the footballers have not been so fruitful as it expected and the refusal has been rotunda. The Barça, nevertheless, expects to approach posture with the players.
Koeman Also has his requirements
As well as from the club have a lot that communicate him to the trainer, he also has his letters to put on the table. The one of Zaandam understands that the situation of the club is extreme and that there are not costs allowed for the moment, but yes feels that it is necessary to reinforce -more- the team with three or four signings during this summer. Previously, it had desvelado that Koeman expected to have a side and central left, in addition to a new midfield player.
It is not an easy wish to fulfil, in any case. If they do not produce sufficient exits, with an extraordinary discount of the mass salarial that allow, first, inscribe to the players that the Barça already has fcihado, will be even more impossible that the Barcelona pose go back to the market.
