The coronavirus has affected gravely the economy of the big European clubs but, definitely, the FC Barcelona is one of which more affected has seen . The Catalan club has suffered an enormous hit in his liquidity that began in the stop that there was in the football the past month of March and that seems that it can dilate until it do not recover a normality that allow to reopen installations like the stadium, the shops or the museum.

Already it does several months that the FC Barcelona works to keep his own mantenibilidad economic. It did it in the first place with severe discounts salariales -the last will produce through the agreement to the that the club arrived with the players this month of November- and later with exits of players whose wages were too high as to be kept, like the cases of Luis Suárez, Arturo Vidal or Ivan Rakitic.
