The directive of the FC Barcelona has begun to fulfil with his duties to arm the staff of the 2022-23 this summer, but still subtracts a lot for doing. With four enclosed reinforcements (Franck Kessié, Andreas Christensen, Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski) and two renewals (Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembélé), are six the players that, to these heights, could not be inscribed in LaLiga because of the problems with the limit salarial that drags the club from final of the past season.

After the wintry market, the Barça happened to have a limit salarial of 97.942 million euros to one negative of less 144.353 millions. With the arrivals of the reinforcements of the summer, the situation is much more complex, by which the directive needs to activate the 'operation gone out' what before. With the cessions of Clément Lenglet and Francisco Trincao, the club began to free mass salarial, but still subtract several effective that they have to go out already to open gap to the reinforcements.

Between them they find the already confirmed 'descartes' for turns it American: Net Walled, Samuel Umtiti, Óscar Mingueza, Riqui Puig and Martin Braithwaite. For the moment, any has clear his destination and, in the worst of the cases, the directive will not have more remedy that give them letter of freedom because there is not place in the staff for them. To these five players could add Miralem Pjanic, Ez Abde, Memphis Depay and Frenkie of Jong.

The situation of the bosnio is striking, since it was almost sure that it would not travel with the team to the United States. However, his good disposal in the first week of trainings and the fault of offers did that the technical body opted for carrying him to the pre-season so that, when adding minutes, was more feasible to find him club. With Abde and Memphis sucede something similar, since both will lose his place in the staff with the arrivals of Raphinha and Lewandowski.

The 'case Of Jong', the most complex

Although financially the sale of 15% additional of the television rights of LaLiga solve part of the economic problems of the Barça not to have to sell more players, the true is that the exit of Frenkie would give back the limit salarial blaugrana to green numbers. The club expects to invoice 80 million euros by his traspaso and would free 40 'kilos' in mass salarial, sufficient to be able to inscribe to the six players that, in this moment, are outside by the rule.

Besides, with the money ingresado by the sale of the midfield player could resolve the arrival of another central (Jules Koundé, the favourite), being east the last reinforcement that the Barça would add in summer. The resolution of the 'crowbars' financial has allowed fichar. Now it subtracts to free mass salarial to be able to inscribe to the reinforcements. Thus, to little less than a month for the beginning of LaLiga, Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany need to activate the 'operation gone out' what before.

"What expect all, the technical body and the own players, is that all the cases solve with the greater possible celerity", said Alemany in the presentation of Raphinha. The club trusts the 'good faith' of the players in ramp of exit and in that they soon will arrive offers that resolve the 'serials'. Of the contrary, the exits forzosas will be the only alternative to inscribe to the reinforcements.
