Despite the fact that Barça has loaned Coutinho and lowered Samuel Umtiti's salary to sign up Ferran Torres, the Barça club still has tasks ahead of it... and time is running out

Calendar of FC Barcelona

All the efforts of the FC Barcelona are oriented to generate 'fair play' financial. It is true that the club has achieved two operations importantísimas, as they have been it the cession of Philippe Coutinho and the contractual readjustment of Samuel Umtiti, but the works do not finish there. Between the most urgent aims, are the renewals of Ronald Araújo and Gavi. For both operations, the Barcelona picture requires a margin in his limit salarial that, to day of today, does not have.

To be able to renew to Araújo or Gavi, before is necessary to generate savings. The next step is to achieve the readjustment of the agreement of Sergi Roberto, the one who will extend his stay in the Camp Nou and will see reduced his income. However, until this operation is him complicating to the Barcelona, put the one of Reus is not very convinced with the conditions. Besides, to recess the wage, would not generate a lot of space salarial, due to the fact that the midfield player is not of the players that represent 5% of the total cost of the staff. Independently of what free , only will be able to use 25% of that mount.

In this sense, the Barça needs to achieve more operations to generate margin salarial. They have to do it fast, place remain fourteen days so that it close the market of wintry signings. They are varied the players that could be in the door of exit in these weeks. Sergiño Dest Is one of them. The international of United States at the beginning of 2021 appeared like one of the 'jewels' of the Barça of Koeman, but has sinned of irregularity. His performance has remained questioned and Xavi Hernández does not take it in account between his plans.

It has not felt comfortable in the right side, but neither like extreme... And that is a big problem. In any case, his dream is to follow dressing of Barcelona and would not have intention to leave . They are varied the clubs that have showed interest, but the Bayern of Munich and Chelsea head the list. It is necessary to remember, besides, that his traspaso from the Ajax in 2020 supposed an outlay of around 26 'kilos' (21+5 in variables). In this season, still remained for amortising 16 millions.

Also it is the situation of Net,the one who wants to leave the Camp Nou. It knows that, although Marc-André ter Stegen is in a moment irregular, lives under his shadow. In the Barça is unlikely that Net have opportunities and thus would be looking for an exit of face to the winter. Explaining this course, remains still pending an amortización of 17,5 million euros. There are not a lot of clubs interested in his traspaso. In fact, for the moment there has not been an approach in Europe, but yes from Brazil. Only it remains to see in the conditions in which it could leave so that they exist plusvalías, something that for the moment antoja like impossible for the Barça.

The wrap with the Dutch

The Barcelona deshoja the margarita to know what do with his pair of Dutch Luuk of Jong and Memphis Depay. It is practically descartado that Frenkie of Jong leave in winter, but there are doubts with the others two. In the case of Luuk, has surrendered very well in this 2022 and, although the club thought to give him gone out immediately, now think it twice. The ex of the Lyon, by the contrary, has generated too many doubts in this beginning of year and, if it arrives an important offer, the Barça will look for 'undo' of him as soon as possible.
