The continuity of Leo Messi at FC Barcelona has become a puzzle for Joan Laporta, which still has many pieces missing

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The continuity of Leo Messi has turned into a 'puzzle' very complicated to resolve for the FC Barcelona, no because to the directors desconozcan which are the pieces that are missing to arm it, but because they are very difficult to fit without collateral damages. Joan Laporta is still in the research of the ideal formula, but has been very complicated, leaving to the president to the doors of the possibility to take extreme measures that they can play him against.

The true is that the clock continues running and the Barça remains without time, although the intention of Leo Messi was to remain in the Camp Nou because it keeps the illusion (and ambition) to go back to head to his to the highest. That is the only light that have the Barcelona, because the reality is that the puzzle is more complicated that never, especially by the limit salarial of the ones of the City Condal of face to the next season that, to fault of official figures, will suffer a drastic fall to consequence of the economic losses of the club in the last year.

Like this then , the Barça has the difficult task to fit to Leo (and Eric García, the 'Kun' Agüero, Memphis Depay and Emerson Royal) in a tope salarial that it is 'impossible' for the culés by the high wages of many of the players. Laporta And company know that LaLiga neither Javier Thebes go to yield, because there is not any preference and the norm is above the Barça and Leo Messi. It does not go to alter, of any form, in spite of the problems of the culés in this summer and of the possibility (real) that the maximum star of the Spanish football (and European) remain out of the Barcelona changing room.

With this panorama, the maximum mandator culé 'semence' one of his possible solutions and goes back to the original plan: promote to all risk the 'operation gone out' and sack of all the players with which the club does not explain. Konrad de la Fuente, Matheus Fernandes and Francisco Trincãor have been the first, but follows without being sufficient. The Barça knows that it has to apurar the traspasos of footballers with high index cards with which Ronald Koeman does not explain of face to the next season, but neither is so simple as it seems.

The culés, really, have received very few or any offers by his 'descartes' and confront to the possibility to repeat the 'case Matheus' and terminate of unilateral form of the agreements of these footballers (Umtiti, Pjanic...), as it has informed in the last hours, but is a weapon of double edge because the club would have to pay him the corresponding money to what would earn in his remaining seasons in the City Condal and, if they do not do it, can confront to complaints. An option that, a priori, is delicate and has to be taken with responsibility (and no in a moment of taut calm, like this).

The Barça, between the sword and the wall

As they are the things, to the Barça remains him follow insisting with the cleaning of the changing room, but also is likely that are in the obligation to ask him an effort 'extra' to Leo Messi, in economic key, as well as tantear the possibility to reduce the wages of the 'holy cows' of the changing room. Already they have achieved the one of Gerard Hammered, but still have not concretised the ones of Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets or Sergi Roberto, something that is not so simple, neither.

The players are in position to deny because they have not cost neither a euro to the club and have given it all, being keys, besides, for the successes of the team. Like this then , they will have to negotiate very well and gather with players that have index cards very high (Griezmann, Frenkie of Jong, Coutinho...). In definite, a true 'serial' with a lot of effects and nuances.
