The offices of the Barcelona have been one 'Russian mountain' of emotions from the start of the season. With strong doubts in the saga, Xavi Hernández assumed the reins of the team and began to distribute well his pieces, giving prominence to ones and closing him the door to others. With more than five head offices inside the rows of the plantel, the egarense had his preference by the historical Gerard Hammered, and the youngsters Eric Garcia and Ronald Araújo.

Óscar Mingueza also has had minutes, and has exerted of 'patch' in a lot of occasions to be able to cover the different drops in the bands. However, the trainer has an incógnita with the French of the defence, since they do not finish to win his confidence and in several opportunities has had to separate them of the team, like the case of Samuel Umititi in Riad, the one who had to see the defeat of the team from the terracing.

The born in Yaoundé presented one of the highest wages of the staff, and in a desperate measure of the institution, renewed until 2026. Now, the dorsal '23' reduced 10% of his wage until 2023, and the rest distributed it in more years of agreement. Nevertheless, it has had only an opportunity inside the eleven initial, and a cession shows like the best solution for both parts.

With Clément Lenglet the history is different. The central has had more presences and has contested seven of the last eleven parties for the one of Terrassa. In spite of this, the value of his index card is another of the problems that has the entity. By the moment, when having a high wage and not representing an indisputable piece for Xavi, any offer would leave him in the ramp of exit of the Camp Nou. It is thus that so much the FC Barcelona like the míster find in a crossing in front of the two footballers Frenchmen. The market of signings still remains open, and by the moment, the future of both inside the team shows uncertain.

The priority of the mass salarial

The directive of the Barcelona group still is in the need to reduce the enormous mass salarial that has. Without having what perceived Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, the plantel barcelonista continue being the costliest of all the world. In spite of this, the movements that has done Joan Laporta represent an opportunity for the future. The youth is the key that have the culés to reconstruct his image and go back to be in the elite of the European football. It is a big bet, but is the only way to recover the status that had the Barça in the last decades.
