It is not a secret for anybody that the FC Barcelona carries several years suffering by his limit salarial and, although during the summer achieved to increase in 800 million euros his 'ceiling', the problems have not finish. This Monday in LaLiga have desvelado the 'LCPD' after the market of wintry signings and the one of the club of the City Condal has seen reduced.

The Barça has happened of the €656.429.000 to the €648.824.000 although in the month of January has seen to leave to three players (Gerard Hammered, Memphis Depay and Héctor Bellerín) and only has inscribed to Gavi in the first staff. The reduction justifies to the losses by the elimination of the Champions League in phase of groups, that the patronal has valued in €26m, but have compensated with the exits and sponsorships so that only they went €7,6m of reduction in the limit salarial.

The case is that, of face to the next season, the situation could be a lot worse if they do not take actions immediately. As they have repeated in several occasions of LaLiga, the Barça is forced to free 200 million euros of his mass salarial of face to the summer in case that they want to go out to the market of signings, as probably they will want to, and also thinking in the registration of the new agreement of Ronald Araújo and the renewals of Alejandro Balde, Iñaki Crag or Sergi Roberto.

"Or you increase your income or if you do not achieve it, have to reduce your costs selling players"

In press conference, the president of LaLiga, Javier Thebes, has explained, in concrete, that "the Barça has done operations no recurrent (crowbars) that have allowed him pay the costs of this season, but no the ones of the following. Or you increase your income or if you do not achieve it, have to reduce your costs selling players. Also it can do a mix of the two options. They will have to reduce some 200 million mass salarial".

It is not something new, because the Barça already had announced, through his director of the area of football Mateu Alemany, that the mass salarial would have to go down until the 470 or 450 million euros. It is a mount that, according to the corporate general director of The League Javier Gómez, is in accordance with the cost of the staff of the first team, but the "no inscribible" will be other 108M€. It understands, also, that has to take in account that the club will have losses because they will not be in the Spotify Camp Nou, the mount that no ingresará by the television rights, the losses by COVID-19...

Gómez has done reference to that "these 450 or 470 millions square with what is the cost of staff of the first team. The staff no inscribible are besides 108 million euros. With the information that gives the Barcelona, have an idea that has to be corroborated by the club. You go to have the enclosed stadium, lose X, the president himself said 93 million euros".

It insisted in that "have this cost of staff, have had 40 million television that no longer have, have to take into account that there are losses of COVID that did not take into account....
