In the first place, it showed worry with the economic situation, posing a future to half term. "The economic subject and his day in day out is important, as that what before can go back the people to the stadiums. It is not between our priorities. Once it happen the second wave, with the vaccine and the test antígenos, would be a good moment to pose it", said.

Also it analysed the tremendo descent of the ceiling salarial of the FC Barcelona. "With these data understands the situation that has the club with his players. It has to negotiate with them to reduce his wage. Valencia has had to sell to his players and replantear his tesorería.

They do not go to have sanction if they do not arrive to fulfil the limit, but what do not reduce this year the Barcelona will affect him for the following season.

The president of LaLiga also analysed the reduction of wages, as well as the competitiveness of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona: "Both have staff that can be competitive in Europe. I save in England, in the rest of markets have been internal movements. The players of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are competitive.

"The FC Barcelona has to take the bull by the horns to have a correct economic structure. It has reduced 30% his income. It has to have a year of transition. We do not look what do the others of Europe, already will see his accounts shortly. We can not be equal of demanding", sentenced.

Leo Messi and the Manchester City

"The only club of the that speaks that it can buy to Leo Messi is the Manchester City and as it does not play with the same norms that the rest", said, adding that to the group directed by Pep Guardiola "does not affect him the COVID neither at all, funds of another form and with this is impossible to compete".

On Sergio Bouquets and his possible renewal, Javier Thebes showed optimism to the Real Madrid considering more likely that the Andalusian do not change of airs.
