To recess the mass salarial, in addition to the sales and cessions, the Barça needs an extra effort of his players, especially of the 'holy cows' of the changing room

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona is preparing his season 2021-2022 and are many the urgent subjects that has to resolve the club so that the accounts square and can fulfil with the limit salarial of LaLiga, a factor that influences directly in the main aim of the culés: achieve the continuity of Lionel Messi until 2026. Joan Laporta, Mateu Alemany and the rest of directors are working to achieve strategies chords to the current reality of the Barça and already have begun to execute one of them.

Although it is true the Barcelona entity carries several weeks working in the sales and cessions of players with which Ronald Koeman does not explain (Firpo, Konrad...), it is a lot the money that the club has to free (and ahorrrar) to fulfil with the 'fair play' financial of LaLiga, considering that to inscribe to his new signings, included Messi, has to apply the rule '1 to 4', that establishes that the team only can invest a fourth part of the money that ingrese by sales or savings.

In this sense, the discounts salariales play a key paper, considering besides that many of the 'heavy weights' have a high index card. Leo Messi, like captain, has been the first that has taken a step forward and accepted a reduction of 50% of his index card (would earn 40 gross millions to the year, 20 net, as you report them) and now happens the ball to the rest of 'holy cows' of the changing room culé. In concrete: Sergi Roberto, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Gerard Hammered.

As it has reviewed the newspaper 'Sport', Mateu Alemany, sportive director of the Barcelona entity, has kept a meeting with Josep Maria Orobitg, the agent of Sergi and Busquets, in addition to Arturo Channels, representative of Hammered. En última instancia, also it had a summit with Vicente Forés, the one who represents to Jordi Alba. The intention of the director is clear: achieve an agreement to reduce the annual quantity that perceive these cuatros players.

For the Barça is indispensable that these footballers do an extra effort and help to the club in a moment so delicate, economically speaking. Besides, the half aims that the culés have sent a letter to the players to expose them the financial situation that crosses the team and advance them of the beginning of the negotiations to recess his index card.

Position of the 'heavy weights'

'Sport' Aim, besides, that the four players were in the line with the club, although apparently the negotiations are not being easy because the Barça asked them, at first, a reduction of 40% of his wages, a percentage that refused immediately. In second instance, propose them an extension of his respective agreements with the discount salarial, what translates in earning the same but with more years of agreement.

It would be the same negotiation that Josep María Bartomeu carried out recently less than a year, in October, whenP iqué, Of Jong, Lenglet and Ter Stegen prolonaron his stay in the Camp Nou by more time, with the same wage. In that moment, the rest of 'holy cows' denied to this possibility.

Risks for the Barça

This formula that the FC Barcelona puts on the table is not so simple, since it would mean that some that another player was vinculdo with the club until the 40 years. I hammered, for example, it would finalise his current agreement to the 37, whereas Busquets and Alba to the 35. Sergi Roberto, to the 30 (has agreement until the 2022).

The Barça, in any case, is going to the limit and it will be necessary to take care all the 'fringes' of this type of negotiations, reason by which Mateu Alemany is at the top. The club has very good feelings, for the moment, and trusts that his big stars, that always have showed commitment, are had to 'help' in this moment of crisis.
