The stop of the football after the sanitary crisis by the coronavirus has finish with the inflation of the prices that had produced in the signings. Something very negative for the Barça

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In the market of signings inside the world of the football, the speculation caused an impressive inflation of the prices paid by the traspasos of the players. This rise of the value of the players arrived to increase of spectacular form during the last seasons, arriving to pay authentic atrocities by the most sought-after players.

The signing of Neymar by Paris Saint-Germain finish to break the market. They were 222 millions those that paid the French team by the player that, then, was of the FC Barcelona. From here, they arrived other madnesses of the market: Mbappé, Coutinho, Joao Félix, Dembelé, Griezman, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pogba and Hazard surpassed the barrier of the 100 millions in traspasos.

But the sanitary crisis caused by the massive propagation of the coronavirus is allocated to change the history. Especially, because all the sport has had to stop his usual calendar and, of course, the football has not been an exception. Lyou parties have left to contest and, with them, have disappeared the income of the clubs in concept of taquillas or television rights.

The fact that the clubs leave to make money with the sportive events is causing losses multimillionaires for the entities that, of course, resentirán a lot to economic level. A lot of clubs will not be able to pay to his footballers the multimillionaires agreements that signed in his moment and, of course, will not be able to face the astronomical investments that were giving in signings during the last seasons.

In fact, it is almost impossible that repeat operations of more than 100 million euros as, for example, those that gave the summer happened in LaLiga: Eden Hazard (to the Real Madrid by 130 millions), Antoine Griezmann (to the Barça by 135) or Joao Félix (to the Athletic of Madrid by 127 millions). Therefore, everything seems to indicate that this summer there will be much less movement that the one who had given in the last campaigns.

Two big problems for the Barça

The FC Barcelona will have two grave economic problems generated by the stop of the football: the first will be to pay the wages multimillionaires that there is in the staff as, for example, the ones of Leo Messi (some 39 million annual euros) or the one of Antoine Griezmann (around 23 'kilos' by year); second, that possible sales like the ones of Coutinho and Dembélé, that cost a millonada in his day, will have to be to low cost and will not be able to recover the investments.
