FC Barcelona faces these next four days as the most key of the season. The club is forced to close a few 'urgent' folders shortly and plays against the clock
On 30 June it finalises the exercise 2021-2022 and, to day of today, the FC Barcelona would close the course with losses of 120 or 150 million euros, waiting for the activation of any of the 'crowbars' economic. The blaugrana work to time trial to close this operation and concretise some exit in the next days that allow to think in the signings that has asked Xavi Hernández to reinforce his staff of face to the season 22-23, in which the culés expect to go back to compete by the titles after a year in white.
The main priority of the Barça is to sell 10% of the television rights, by the next 25 years, to generate a figure that rondará the 200 million euros, as minimum. Said mount would allow to the Barcelona entity close the exercise with a minimum profit for, for the first time in three years, see his accounts 'saneadas'. It foresees that that will be the first movement that will concretise the club, whereas they will expect until mediated of July to concretise the sales of the another 15% of the rights of TV and 49,9% of BLM (Barça Licensing and Merchandising), that will allow to the club put of full in the market of signings.
Likewise, the club is attentive to what can happen with the possible sales that also would generate income to the Barcelona arks. In concrete, the situation of Frenkie of Jong is the one who more importance will generate in the next days. The Manchester United is presionando his traspaso and would have increased his offer to 80 million fixed euros more variable, but the player has not given green light to the movement. In England trust that it can close before 30 June, but depends of the midfield player.
In a different position is Ousmane Dembélé, but generates a lot of doubts in the Barça and, of agreement to the last informations, from the offices of the Camp Nou have given him an ultimatum so that it announce his final decision between today and morning. In case that it do not do it, for 'take care' the image, the directors pose the option to withdraw the offer of renewal that is on the table of the player of 25 years, because at the end they feel that during all this time the footballer only has laughed of the club. It foresees that his 'serial' finish in brief, but with Dembélé anything could happen.
On the other hand, from the Barcelona group have left to glimpse that they expect to concretise the exit of players with which Xavi Hernández does not explain in the next four days, but seems a quite complicated option. Samuel Umtiti, Riqui Puig, Clément Lenglet and Òscar Mingueza are those that could do his cases of first, but up to now there are not negotiations begun (and much less directed) by any of the four, by what will be complicated that it concretise some before 30 June.
The conditionings of the signings and renewals
If the Barça concretised the sale of 10% of the television rights by the next 25 years, the exit of Frenkie of Jong and defined the situation of Ousmane Dembélé of face to the next season in record time, the Barcelona could focus in advancing in the signings that Xavi has asked, with the names of Robert Lewandowski and Jules Koundé like big priorities.
In the case of the Pole, in the last days has informed that the Bayern of Munich would be had to negotiate by 60 million euros, 20 'kilos' more than which the blaugrana expected to offer, whereas Koundé could cost other 50-60M. They are operations that will suppose big outlays and from both clubs have done to know to the Catalans that only will accept only payments (and no by terms, as it has done the Barça in the last times), by what will be destined operations to complicate .
