The FC Feminine Barcelona received the prize to the best team in the 'Festa of l'Esport Català', an event in where the mandator blaugrana took advantage of to converse on the season that culminates and the management to prepare the one who avecina. The summer promises a lot of movements in Can Barça and the president did not doubt in criticising the 'Fair Play' financial and the restrictions that imperan in LaLiga, which limit the capacity of the clubs to reinforce every year.

For Laporta, the valid norms in Spain are much more strict that in other countries, by which is more complicated to incorporate new players. "Signings? We do what can because it is difficult. We do not have any complicity neither support of LaLiga. The norms of the 'Fair Play' here are too restrictivas and demanding if we compare them with other countries and this is another hándicap to surpass", said the president culé.

However, the mandator is positive of face to the next market of passes, where the Barça is forced to reinforce to go back to compete by all the titles in the 2022-23. "We are accustomed, come of what come and only there is a secret: Work and work, and work well. It is necessary to try struggle for doing a more competitive team", expressed Laporta when being questioned on the quantity of signings that can arrive this summer.

For the moment, the club already has closed to Andreas Christensen and Frank Kessié, two reinforcements of defensive cut that will help to Xavi Hernández to strengthen one of the main weak points of the staff: the defence. It is thus that the directive will go by, at least, two defenders more, being Marcos Alonso and César Azpilicueta the best outlined to arrive between July and August. Nevertheless, still there is not at all closed with any of the Spanish referents of Chelsea.

The rule of the limit salarial, big headache of the Barça

Further of the need to incorporate reinforcements in totdas his lines, the Barça can not go out to the market with the solvency of other years. First by fault of money and second by the new rule of limit salarial that imposes LaLiga. The reinforcements arrived in winter (Dani Alves, Ferran Torres, Adama Traoré and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang) left the limit salarial culé in red numbers, in less 144.353 million euros, being the only Spanish club of First and Second Division in this situation.

In this sense, the 'Fair Play' financial valid in Spain will force to the directive to do malabares to be able to fichar. The first is to do box with the costliest players in the market (case Frenkie of Jong, for example). Afterwards it is necessary to take out accounts to see how much money can reinvertirse by each traspaso, following the famous rules of 5% and 33%.

If the cost of the player sold is inferior to 5% of the total value of the staff, the club can reinvertir 1 of each 4 euros 'saved'. Instead, if the traspaso corresponds to a player whose value equivalent to 5% of the total of the staff, the managerial can have of 33% of the sale for new signings. Of this way, if the Barça wants to buy, is forced to sell, and sell expensive, in addition to achieving money to amortise debts. From here that the complaints of Laporta, in this case, are totally based.
