Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona does not want to close the window of transfers of winter without more incorporations. Xavi Hernández, trainer of the team, has insisted in the imperial need to reinforce to the team in January, because the staff leaves the feeling to remain short. Nevertheless, right now go out to the market is a complete challenge because the club, first, does not have 'cash' to do big signings and, more important still, exceeds his limit salarial and to inscribe to new footballers it is necessary to do malabares.

However, the situation is very clear. Xavi has asked more signings and the Barça is working in this. The egarense is in the research of a leading centre that can help to litigate against the fault of goal and also of a left side that can serve of competition for Jordi Alba that has been very argued in the last weeks, but that has not lost his role to title indisputable.

Like this then , Mateu Alemany, has two paramount tasks in what to reinforcements refers , but will not have it so easy. Xavi has insisted in Álvaro Morata and in his 'operation' there are two problems. The Juventus will not leave him go out if they do not have a spare of quality (to date, have not achieved it) and from the Barça are not had to pay 40 millions by his index card, conscious that it is not the 'plan To' of the team on a long-term basis.

In the left side, the situation is simpler, but is not free of obstacles. Recently Nicolás Tagliafico has surfaced like the main candidate to reinforce the left band of the Barça. The journalist Fabrizio Romano stood out that the player "presiona for fichar by the Barcelona next week. The Ajax still is asking a permanent agreement, whereas the Barça only thinks in a movement of loan", adding that "Tagliafico only wants to join to the Barça the before possible: it expects that the Ajax leave it yielded with this big opportunity for his career".

However, there is a problem: andl Ajax only would pose his traspaso if they credit the seven million his index card, whereas in the Barça only are thinking in a cession and the option of an option of purchase. The Barcelona only would have options to do with his services if they pay. And they do not want to do it.

It does not be necessary to forget of the limit salarial

By a part are the wishes of Xavi or of all the Barça, and by the another the hard reality. The Barça exceeds (in almost 372 million euros!) His limit salarial and does not have 'fair play', by what has to stick to two rules that are a quebradero of head to inscribe to the new footballers. And it is that, although a club surpass the mount that pacta LaLiga, can follow fichando, but is the double -or cuádruple- of difficult.

They exist two rules that allow to the Barça incorporate to new footballers: the '1 to 4' and '1 to 2'. The first establishes that by each four euros freed with a sale with plusvalías or discount salarial, can use one to inscribe to a player. In a simple example, if it achieves the sale of, for example, Òscar Mingueza by 20 million euros, the Barça can use 5 'kilos' of those to process a registration.

However, there is another rule with which is easier to generate income. It treats of the '1 to 2', which uses in players that represent 5% of the total cost of the staff and allows to use the half of what free with his sale/recesses salarial. For example, if the Barça sold to Sergio Busquets (one of the best paid and without amortización pending) in 20 millions, can use ten for the registration of a footballer.

To fault to resolve the 'case Dembélé'

If the Barça achieves to clear the wrap with Ousmane Dembélé the way would be much easier for the Barcelona. The French will not extend his agreement with the Barcelona picture further of 30 June of this year and the club has communicated him that it has to leave the Camp Nou before 31 January: "it has communicated him to him and to his agents that has to abandon the club and that it has to look for a transfer before 31 January", announced Mateu Alemany.

If Dembélé abandons the club, would generate an important space in the mass salarial that would allow to have a mattress to inscribe to new players. However, the problem is that the French does not want to go out and keeps firm in his position: "I Have lived complex moments, injuries... The míster has requested me and have fulfilled, without rechistar. Fulfil so willingly with have done it always because it is my passion", informed recently.
