The FC Barcelona is the club that more money spends in wages of all Europe, and from here it have to restructure his current model as a result of the crisis of the coronavirus
The FC Barcelona has gone arrinconándose with the step of the years and, induced by his aim to surround to Leo Messi of the best players, has fallen in the error to offer astronomical wages to practically each new signing. The entity has to face up to a mass salarial of 245 clean millions to the year to pay the index cards of the players of the first team, a model that will have to change in the next years.
The general director, Oscar Grau, already explained during the past month of January the difficulties that has the club to keep a so high level of cost in wages, although it detailed that it had been able to lighten in almost 30 millions thanks to the cessions of players like Aleñá, Todibo, Coutinho, Rafinha and Wagué.
This does not remove that the FC Barcelona was against the ropes and have every time less margin and freedom salarial to sign to new 'cracks' or improve some agreements of indispensable pieces. The current system can put seriously risk the economic feasibility of the club during the next years, and is thus that of face to the next campaign it will be necessary to create a new frame where manage of a very distinct way the active.
To the equal that the Barça although in distinct measure, the rest of big clubs of Europe confront to an alike problem and, after the crisis of the coronavirus that will do estragos economically in the world of the football, foresees a gradual descent in the wages of all the footballers of elite, as well as in the signings multimillionaires that every time surpassed with more frequency the 100 million euros. From now no longer it will be like this.
Taking into account that the mass salarial of the FC Barcelona elevates to 245 clean millions and that the current staff has 19 players, the average is of 12.89 net millions by player, a figure something deceptive since Messi is the footballer that more earns of the staff with a lot of difference in front of the rest, and one of which more earns of the world. They follow him other players like Griezmann or Luis Suárez, also to some distance of effective with less weight.
And still they can arrive Neymar, Lautaro Martínez, Fabián Ruiz...
The question is that, if the FC Barcelona pretends fichar to Neymar Jr or Lautaro Martínez, will have to do them hollow in the scale salarial and this will comport necessarily give off of any of the most elevated wages of the current staff. Griezmann, Dembélé and Coutinho are those who more numbers would have to go out, without explaining to players like Rakitic and Arturo Vidal.
In these moments, the discount promoted by the club and the players has served to save a total of 21 million euros of the total total: 245. Obviously, it keeps on being insufficient to face all the costs of the season, and more taking into account the grey horizon that cierne on the world of the international football. It will touch to put in practical measures more aggressive of face to the future.
