The course en bloc of Josep Maria Bartomeu and of his managerial board served to advance three months the next elections to the presidency of the FC Barcelona, but the big problem of the club keeps on being the economic, supposing an important fetter for the next directive that put at the head of the club. Deportivamente, the delicate financial stage could happen bill, for example, to the hour to ensure the continuity of key players.
The case that more concerns is the one of Leo Messi, that finishes agreement in 2021 and that has some conditions salariales current that will not be able to equalise in the offer of renewal that present the club to convince him that it remain . Toni Freixa, precandidato to the next elections of the FC Barcelona, was interviewed in the program 'The Curbito' of Tevecat and spoke on this delicate situation.
The precandidato left clear that if Leo Messi remains in the FC Barcelona, will have to be adapting his wage to the derivative economic conditions of the pandemia. "With Leo Messi will speak calmly, face to face having like horizon the best for the Barça. To him, as to all the players that have to renew or come will do him an offer that of course will not be able to equalise the conditions that has had up to now", explained.
"The offer to renew to Leo Messi will not be able to be in the current conditions"
Toni Freixa has clear that the FC Barcelona will have to convince to Leo Messi with a sportive project solid that compensate the descent of wage that will suffer if it remains . "It can not deceive to the partners. The proposal that will pose him will not be the same that has had up to now because they have descended the income significantly and it will be necessary to find another formula. To Messi does not be necessary to conquer him neither it is necessary to convince him with other things, it is necessary to look him to the eyes and speak to know what each one wants to, what he wants to and what wants the Barça. We think that Messi still has a lot of football", said.
However, in spite of not hiding the difficult financial situation of the club, Toni Freixa did not hide that the club has half to recover . "Have quarry, the best of the world, the potential of 150.000 partners and 171.000 peñistas in addition to million followers and enormous own resources. We are not in the apocalyptic horizon that some say neither finish the world, are 121 years old of history and of experience. We will go out forward", it ensured.
Doubt of the signings that can promise
Toni Freixa also was asked about the signings that will promise the rest of candidatures and doubted of them in front of the few resources that will have the club to bring to new footballers. "I ask me if they promise them and they announce with the money of the Barça… and if it is like this as I do not see it so clear in the current circumstances. Another thing is that they pay it of his pocket, then is another thing", considered.
The precandidato sees key to hit in the bets of market that do , as well as trust the youngsters. "With 800 million euros of debt more the debt accumulated with the players that is negotiating , is complicated to promise things or signings that are not possible. Another thing is to manage well, racionalizar the costs and have tarpaulin in the reinforcements and this is what we can ensure in addition to having a confidence and absolute illusion in players like Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig or Pedri", sentenced.
