The FC Barcelona deshoja the margarita with the possibility of fichar to some player in the market of wintry signings. They are many the factors that involve a moviento of the Barcelona, but are two those that are above the everything. First, in this beginning of season has remained showed that the staff is very weakened, by the exits of Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann, and that like this is difficult to compete by the titles. Segundo, from the Camp Nou take in account that the economic situation is to the limit and that, exceeding the limit salarial, is very difficult to carry to a new player to Can Barça.

In the last months have sounded a big number of footballers to reinforce the picture blaugrana, from Giveneither Elm until Raheem Sterling, going through Paul Pogba, Jules Koundé, Kingsley Eat or Brozovic, among others so many, but it is necessary to take in account the complicated reality of the club and the limitantes to achieve to a signing of high level, was the one who went, and the limit salarial plays the most key paper for the culés. The 'ceiling' imposed by LaLiga is of less than 98 million euros and the current staff 'slope' 470 millions, according to the official figures that has offered the Barça. What means that the Barça exceeds in around 372 'kilos'.

When surpassing the limit salarial, LaLiga offers a 'window' to the clubs for fichar, but with a lot of limitantes. It treats of the rule '1 to 4', which establishes that by each four euros freed in sales with plusvalías and discounts salariales, will be able to allocate one to the registration of a playedr. This was what avoided the renewal of Leo Messi, because if the Argentinian went to earn 40 millions to the year, the Barça had to free four times this quantity, that is to say, 160 'kilos'. The rule will follow valid for the culés in January, summer... And maybe by much more time.

With this situation, to the Barça complicates him any signing, although the club, with the exits of the summer, remained with a balance of +20 that it can be allocated to the incorporations and renewals (already have concretised the ones of Ansu Fati and Pedri González), by what the figure has gone reducing. This wants to say that, if Dani Elm, Sterling, Pogba or any aim of the Barça, could arrive to the Camp Nou, would have to be by a figure very, very low (including wage).

In case that, in question, arrive a new player to the Barça, the club will follow exceeding the limit salarial and, although from LaLiga have announced that this year they will not have consequences for the clubs that surpass it (by the Covid-19 and his estragos), the next season yes will have it. Which would be this consequence? That what exceeds this year the picture culé subtract to the tope salarial of the next year... Less 372 millions.

Situation limit for the Barça

From the club keep the hope to be able to reinforce the staff with players of quality, but the only option is to follow recessing the mass salarial drastically to be able to have margin of action. Joan Laporta and company have to 'undo' of a lot of footballers and obtain plusvalías of the operations for 'dream' with a good signing in January or summer. It is the only form, because in spite of that Javier Thebes announced that in the Barça "have on 20 million euros for fichar players", the rule '1 to 4' limit all the actions of the club in what to traspasos respecta. In this case, the player (with his wage) would have to cost 5 millions to the year, so that 'fit' in that mount to the that refers the president of the patronal.

To this it is necessary to add him the compensation of Ronald Koeman and the registration of the new technical body of the Barça, directed predictably by Xavi Hernández. LaLiga Has a rule of 4% of the limit to inscribe to the new body, but for the Barcelona would not surpass the 3,9 millions. This, if it had contratato in the beginning of the season. Now, it enciphers it round the 2,9 'kilos'... And the FC Barcelona is in research of the magic formula to resolve his problems with very little money. A day more in Can Barça.
