The summer transfer market is approaching and FC Barcelona is obliged to 'push' and resolve the contractual situation of four players from the Barça squad before there are any surprises
The next weeks present like keys for the FC Barcelona of face to the resolution of four cases that have turned into a true quebradero of head for the Barcelona leaders, especially a Mateu Alemany that is commissioning of the big movements of the club in question of signings and renewals. To the director of football and man of confidence of Joan Laporta him avecinan days of a lot of work to close, once and for all, the folders of urgent.
The big problem is that they are many the pending subjects for resolving and little the margin of manoeuvre. The Barça has like big obligation make his staff for the season 2022-2023 with new discounts salariales and, especially, a scale salarial chord to the financial crisis that lives the club. The intention is to leave backwards the millionaire wages and that the players was 'adapt' to the current situation.
This influences so much in the new signings as in the renewals that want to complete the Barcelona club. They are two the players that are next to finish his agreement (Ousmane Dembélé and Sergi Roberto, on 30 June) and varied the bonds that win in 2023, but the attention of the Barcelona is centred in Ronald Araújo and Gavi, two of the players that aim to be the pillars of the team to average and long term. All the cases have seen braked by the same 'problem': there is not economic agreement. We review them one to one:
The 'novel' of Dembélé
Ousmane Dembélé Causes that it was necessary to question if the Catalan entity would have to leave it leave on 30 June of this year like free agent. For the moment, his future is still in the air: it has not renewed and from the club fear that have an agreement with another team, but in the terrain of game the history is very different and has consolidated like one of the protagonists of the Barça in the last month.
It expects that during this week produce a new meeting between the Barcelona leaders and the surroundings of the French player in which the Barça will look for to approach postures in the economic section. For the moment, Mateu Alemany has commented that "if Dembélé adapts to our conditions could follow with us. So much he like the others that have to renew (Gavi and Araujo) already know our difficult economic situation".
Gavi, the case more 'simple'
The one of The Palaces has his open file and expects a prompt solution. It wants to remain in the Camp Nou under any circumstance, but also would have discrepancies between what offers the club and asks the footballer. However, the main reason by which has not concretised the renewal of Gavi is because the Barça wants to 'rise him' and give him a dorsal of the first team. They tried it in January, but in front of the signings and the few exits, the operation remained in 'stand by'.
This week and the next will be keys to reach an agreement, but understands that it will communicate and will sign in the summer when the Barcelona can do him a definite gap in the vestuuario of the 'big'. Gavi Is one of the big jewels formed in The Masia and will not leave him escape under any circumstance.
Araújo, postures moved away... But with confidence
The FC Barcelona wants to concretise the renewal of Araújo as soon as possible, but the postures are very move# away regarding what asks. At all times, the international with Uruguay has warned that it wants to have a wage that was chord to the importance or importance that has in the team. His priority is to remain in the Camp Nou, as it recognised after the crash in front of the Seville: "I Am very happy to be here. Happy with the support of the people. We are working (in the renewal). This week have a meeting. I expect that it resolve prompt to be able to follow a lot of years in this club. I want to remain me here. I am optimistic".
The meeting of the next days will be key. Diverse informations have signalled that the Barça will plant definitively with an offer of three million euros. Mateu Alemany Recognised that "we know that Araújo has win to remain but all have to understand and adapt to the situation of the club", stood out, gliding so the player will have to adapt to what can put the club on the table.
Sergi Roberto, in the door of exit
In an entirely distinct situation is Sergi Roberto, the one who has the doors of the Camp Nou opened wide open to leave in this summer like free agent. The Barça did him an offer that the player recognised like insufficient and is unlikely that the Barcelona increase it, by what foresees that it finish abandoning the club. Only Xavi could change the history... And it is unlikely.
On him, Laporta declared recently that "had the opportunity to renew at the beginning of this season, when several players recessed the wage. I did not understand why it did not accept the offer. The moment was then", whereas the agent of the footballer has 'loaded' against the president and the club: "In August there was a contraoferta of the club very to the drop", adding that "Nnos sent afterwards a documentation that at all taenia that see with the spoken. It did not seem in at all to what said him".
