A little more than two weeks before the start of LaLiga, the FC Barcelona board is still working on the incorporation of reinforcements, but also on the exit of the 'discards'. For this, sales, assignments and salary reductions are fundamental
The FC Barcelona has incorporated five players in the market of summer, but to little more than two weeks for the beginning of LaLiga, the club still has not resolved the registration of these reinforcements, more those that are for arriving. If the Spanish championship began this weekend, the Barça could not have Franck Kessié, Andreas Christensen, Pablo Tower, Raphinha neither Robert Lewandowski, as the mass salarial current does not adjust to the 'fair play' financial Spanish.
However, the panorama regarding wages is alentador. With the money obtained by the activation of the 'crowbars' financial, the Barça will be able to receive to the 'rule of the 1/1' (can reinvertir each euros obtained by sales and cessions in signings). To the beginning of the 2021-22, a total of 12 players of the staff culé had wages above the market and, for June of this year, the mass salarial was of 560 millions.
With the incorporations of the summer, the things complicate , since in addition to the five enclosed signings until the moment also is necessary to add to Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembélé, those who renewed agreement recently. Like this the things, the directive headed by Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany has to go out what before players like Net Walled, Samuel Umtiti, Óscar Mingueza, Riqui Puig and Martin Braithwaite to free contingents in the staff.
Besides, the ideal would be to give off of players like Memphis Depay and Frenkie of Jong, whose traspasos would leave around 105 'kilos' in box. In the case of the midfield player, his course would free one of the highest index cards of the staff, as the one of Arkel earns 14M net to the year. Even, the names of Serginho Dest and Marc-André ter Stegen has circulated in the last hours like possible exit in case of emergency, since the German invoices almost 11M net by season; while the American would not have place in the team if it arrives César Azpilicueta.
The difficulty to transact the exits
To these heights, the Barça has simpler fichar other reinforcements that concretise the necessary exits to close the staff. Players like Net and Braithwaite follow reacios to leave and the time constrains. Of the same way, the case of the Dutch neither luce simple, especially regarding Frenkie, the one who already refused the substantial proposal of the Manchester United and neither has accessed to go down the wage to continue in the club.
In this sense, Laporta no descarta the activation of a third crowbar: the sale of 49% of the audiovisual producer culé, Barça Studios. The sale of this active would leave more than 50 million euros in box, sufficient to resolve the registration of the reinforcements without depending on the sale of other players. What if it would have to do the club is, in the case of the 'descartes', award letters of freedom and the respective compensations to free space in the staff.
