FC Barcelona is going to have a very difficult time signing normally this coming summer if it does not make a very 'top' sale or several important sales. At the moment, the club advocates maintaining the block and not transferring key players, but that would prevent the arrival of high-level signings

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has to face an important decision of face to the next market of signings of summer. The culés, that through Deco have left clear that do not plan to sell to any star, risk to not reaching the rule of the 1/1 for fichar if they do not have important income regarding traspasos. If they did not attain it, reinforce with some player 'top' will remain practically descartado and only could do incorporations to cost zero or to low cost, like sucedió in 2023.

It is necessary to clear that to arrive to this norm of the 1/1 that would allow to the culés spend with total freedom, in addition to selling footballers, the Barça also has to achieve the 40 million euros of Barça Vision that 'Free' did not pay in his moment and that right now compute like debt. Attaining another buyer that pay this money yes could reach the rule, as long as the sales that do are important.

In the Barcelona have several pointed names to do box, being surely the favourite Clément Lenglet, Raphinha, Andreas Christensen and can that Jules Koundé. The problem is that Lenglet will not report big profits, the Brazilian and the Danish do not want to leave and will be difficult to do them change of opinion, and Koundé, that neither is by the work to go , the same that happens with Raphinha, would not give too many profits unless it went out by much more of what cost, because they follow paying his amortizaciones. The ex of the Leeds cost 60 and the Frenchman some 50, having to pay him to a to the English and to the Seville more than half of this money.

Araújo Or Frenkie of Jong to 'change' of two headlines 'top'

Taking into account this panorama, if in the best of the cases the Barça achieved to sell for example to Lenglet and Raphinha, would follow without being sufficient to arrive to the rule of the 1/1, even having achieved the payment of Barça Vision. Thus, in the club have to pose very seriously if for real it is worthwhile to keep the vertebral column of this team as it is, having remained clear that the staff has important lacks that can that only the signing of some star would fix.

In spite of it importantísimos that they are Ronald Araújo and Frenkie of Jong, that by distinct reasons are the only stars that, although few, have some option to go out, the Barcelona would not have to descartar of the all the exit of one of them. By the charrúa ingresarían some 100 million net euros, whereas by the Dutch also could win between 90 and 100 'kilos' that also would be all profits. It can that with this money, added to all the mentioned previously, the Barcelona group himself could reconstruct in the next market.

With the 100 of one of these two stars, more can that the 30 net that remain of the sale of Raphinha once paid the amortización, and can them that 10 of Lenglet, andl Barça surely have money and mechanisms for fichar to a pair of pieces 'top' that do to go up the level of the team. If it went out Ronald, with Pau Cubarsí exploding, more a Koundé that would have to take a step forward, more Christensen, Iñigo Martínez, can that Chadi Riad or even Mika Faye, although it would lose level in defence, can that it was not necessary to invest in another defender and can expect to 2025. The same sucedería if it went Frenkie, since the Barça has like interiors to Ilkay Gündogan, Pedri and Gavi, that are all 'cracks', by what could do signings more structural.

Kimmich And Mitoma/Sané would elevate the level of the Barça

In the first place, the culés could go to by a mediocentro 'top', that is what more needs after the exit of Sergio Busquets. Joshua Kimmich, that is not happy in the Bayern and finishes agreement in 2025, would be a grandísima option and could arrive by 40 or 50 'kilos' if it decides not renewing and presiona with going out free. The germano definitely would improve a lot to this Barça, that would happen to the following level with him to the controls. A centre of the field with him of pivote and Gündogan, Pedri and Gavi would be of the best of the world definitely and estructuralmente would have more felt that the current.

Besides, also it could do another important outlay to reinforce the left band with some good extreme. Rafael Leao or Khvicha Kvaratskhelia could not being viable, since they would go above the 90 or 100 millions. However, can that Mitoma, that could cost some 60, or Leroy Sané, that when finish agreement in 2025 could cost around 50 or 60 if it follows without renewing, himself are accessible. So much the Japanese like the germano would improve a lot of what there is right now in this side, by what the team in attack would be definitely more powerful and desequilibrante.

Once explained to where could arrive the FC Barcelona if it decided to sell an active capital and varied something more secondary, it is necessary to clear that at all it ensures the success and that it can that the exit of Araújo or the one of Frenkie finish noticing too. However, who does not risk does not win and if the Barça finish in 'white' this campaign can that Joan Laporta and Deco have to pose be brave and renounce to a 'crack' for, perhaps, fichar to two players of level that can elevate the game and the competitiveness of the team.
