The fast propagation by the coronavirus forced to the authorities of a lot of countries to declare the state of alert to confine to the population in his domiciles. Of course, the world of the sport saw affected by the measures and the football detained all the competitions -domestic leagues, Champions League, Europe League and Eurocopa- without that, by the moment, there is a date of return for all they.

Of course, the situation has generated an economic crisis for the clubs, that have lost a lot of million euros for leaving to earn the income in television rights and taquillas. In fact, it has had to implement to the numerous footballers descents of wage -consensuadas or no- to minimise the impact and, of course, the market of traspasos will see affected.

Given the circumstances, the big clubs will not be able to face the astronomical investments that were giving in signings during the last seasons. In fact, it will be impossible that repeat operations of more than 100 million euros as, for example, those that gave the past summer: 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).

Although the FIFA was studying a window of alternative signings that go from July to January, foresees an important descent no only of the prices of the signings, but of the quantity of players that will change of airs. They will give a lot of less operations between the teams, to lower price and, besides, could win a lot of strength an alternative formula for fichar: the exchange of footballers.

In front of the impossibility to pay millionaire figures by the signings, the clubs could have big opportunities negotiating traspasos in return of others. In fact, in France ensure that Paris Saint-Germain already studies barters with the Barça by Neymar, although also it is speaking of other operations in which some players would go in in extraneous operations.

Compulsory conveyances with option to buy

Another big alternative so that they can give important signings will be the compulsory conveyances with option to buy. That is to say, that the footballer to traspasar play a year in loan in the team that buys and that was not until next year, with the economic ecosystem a bit more stable, when they begin to make the payments. A formula that, for example, already employed the PSG when fichó to Kylian Mbappé pertinent of the Monaco.
