Calendar of FC Barcelona

The big European leagues will reach the half of the championship and arrives the moment in which the teams will look for reinforcements in the market. It will not be a simple task, because of the extreme economic situation that live the clubs in full pandemia of the coronavirus. Already in the window of transfers of the past summer saw how some preferred to step at the side to avoid spend money, and the most likely is that in January the situation was very alike.

Without public in the stadiums, the reduction of income by television rights and sponsorships, the finances of the 'big' of Europe has seen highly affected. The majority of the teams have announced economic losses and have seen in the need to apply measures to take care the economic health of the institutions. In the case of the FC Barcelona, for example, the staff has seen reduced his wages in two opportunities to help to the club.

With the descent in the income, saw in the summer how the clubs diminished the quantities invested in traspasos. Unlike previous years, in the summer any signing surpassed the 100 million euros. The most expensive was the one of Kai Havertz of the Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea, by 80 'kilos'. Other sales, as the one of Torthur Melo, Miralem Pjanic, Swindle Werner or Lucas Toreira neither surpassed the one hundred millions.

Of any way, in spite of the difficulties ocasionadas by the COVID-19, the market of signings will open in January for 'hunt' to the European jewels that allow to reinforce the staff of the different teams. In the concrete case of LaLiga Santander, the window of transfer will be opened from 4 January until 1 February, that is to say, the team will have 29 days to achieve the signings that are necessary.

The Series To will follow the same dates that in Spain, whereas in the Bundesliga and Tie 1 will be able to negotiate with players between 2 January and 1 February. By his part, in the Premier League will allow traspasos of the 1 to 31 January. Some clubs of England have complained in different opportunities of the difference of the dates for fichar regarding the others leagues, but in this opportunity only will have a day of difference to close his signings.

There are possibilities that the Barça fiche?

It is not a secret that the situation of the FC Barcelona to day of today is very worrisome and are few the options that has the club to go out to the market. The president of the Managing Commission, Carles Tusquets, already has said that if it does not lighten the mass salarial, that is to the limit, the Barcelona picture will not be able to go out to the market. To this adds him that they will have elections on 24 January and the Barça will have president a week before it culminate the period of purchase, by what, in any one of the cases, it will be necessary to give careers to reinforce the staff.

Eric García and Memphis Depay are the main aims of the club blaugrana. Since Ronald Koeman arrived to the benches of the Camp Nou, asked on purpose the two signings, but in this moment could not him please his wish. If they finish concretising the exit of some of the current players of the team, could arrive at least one of the two. The most feasible option is the one of the Dutch forward, to the that the Lyon will sell by five million euros.
