Barça's economic situation is extremely delicate, but the club would have planned the incorporation of two players in the winter transfer market

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In the last week have been a lot of the players linked with the FC Barcelona of face to the window of transfers of the month of January. They have sounded the names of Ferran Torres, Anthony Martial, Karim Adeyemi Dani Elm... And a few others, but the reality is very difficult for the culés: there is not money with what fichar and only if they produce big exits (in plural), the Barça would have how face a traspaso during the winter, although it will be very difficult.

The situation nowadays is the same that does some weeks, when Joan Laporta mentioned that the intention of the Barça was to incorporate to three players in January. Dani Alves Has been the first and 'SPORT' desvela this Thursday that avecinan two more. That is the wish from the breast of the Barcelona entity, but the economic factor always will play the paper more protagónico and keeps the premise that, without exits, there are not signings.

It is necessary to remember that the Barça has a limit salarial of 97,942 million euros and the current staff 'slope' 470 millions, as they have desvelado the official figures that of the club. What means that the Catalans exceed the tope in around 372 'kilos'. It is a true nightmare, since the quantity that exceed of the limit of this year will subtract of the limit of the next season. However, in spite of this excess, to the teams that have this 'excess'', LaLiga offers two windows: the rule '1 to 4' or '1 to 2'.

And it is that the patronal allows the registration of new players, as long as they fulfil with the rule. The first, ('1 to 4') establishes that the team puede spend in the team of football 25% of what ingresan, that is to say, if they free 100 million euros (by sales with plusvalías or discounts salariales), could use 25 'kilos' in the registration of a new footballer. However, when the player with which frees mass salarial supposes 5% of the total cost of the staff, applies the rule '1 to 2', that allows to the club spend the half of what has freed ('case Griezmann' the past summer, that left profits of 20 millions).

In this sense, the Barça expects to have significant exits in winter to be able to jump to the market. If no, it will be impossible. The names of Philippe Coutinho or Samuel Umtiti go back to be leading, but is unlikely that the Barcelona achieve an exit for the two players in this moment. The Brazilian, for example, andto has planted and took the decision to remain in the Camp Nou, in spite of not having the confidence of Xavi Hernández. The French, by his part, follow 'firm' with the intention to win a place in the team.

Situation limit for the Barça

In summary, and like sucede from does time, the reality is against of the wishes of the Barça, his directors, trainer and fans. It is very difficult to achieve the two signings in January, in spite of the intention, because before it is necessary to free the mass salarial and, besides, concretise the subject of the renewals of Ousmane Dembélé, Ronald Araújo or Gavi... That they already paint to complicated, especially in the case of the French player, the one who follows giving him long to the team and has not taken a final decision.
