Calendar of FC Barcelona

The problem of the FC Barcelona is not, directly, achieve the traspaso of a footballer, but yes process his registration. The agreement with the Manchester City for the traspaso of Ferran Torres is practically enclosed, to fault of official announcement, but there does not detain the history. From the Camp Nou are looking for the formula so that the ex of Valencia fit in the staff, considering that the Barça does not have margin of 'fair play' financial, as they have remembered Mateu Alemany and Joan Laporta in reiterated occasions.

For fichar before is necessary to sell and with Ferran Torres will not be the exception. The Barça has to do him hollow in the staff and is not something so simple, because it would have to free space in the mass salarial with sales with plusvalías and discounts salariales. The renewal to the drop of Ousmane Dembélé will be key, but will not be the only necessary operation to carry out the registration of the footballer of 21 years. In the newspaper 'ACE' remember that Mateu Alemany, director of football, and Ferran Reverter, CEO Barcelona, will have a lot of work during the 'holidays' of Christmas to find a formula hit.

Like this then , in the half Madrilenian aim that directors of the club aim that the signing is 'stopped' by "a problem of Fair Play". The Barça expects to achieve the form that Javier Thebes and company allow the registration of the player, remembering that, like the Barcelona picture exceeds his limit salarial, has to generate a lot of income to be able to 'assume' the traspasos. "There are a lot of duties, but immediately do 'fair play', it is necessary to do exits before they go in. Have very clear the players that want, but before have to fulfil with the 'fair-play' financial", commented Mateu Alemany after the Seville-Barça.

In this sense, in spite of the leak of the Barça in the last hours of the traspaso 'imminent' of Ferran Torres, still there is a 'X' for clearing before we can see, finally, to the footballer dressed of Barcelona. And, as it happened with Leo Messi or the signings of summer, the formula splits of the rules '1 to 2' or '1 to 4' to open space in the mass salarial. And, as always, the exits with plusvalías will be keys. The names of Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti, Sergiño Dest or Luuk of Jong go in in the operation and the culés 'depend' of them and his exits.

The 'nightmare' of the Fair Play financial

To understand the scope of the extreme situation of the Barça, it is necessary to remember that LaLiga has 'imposed' a limit salarial of 97,942 million euros and the current staff 'slope' 470 millions, according to the official figures that has offered the club. What means that the Catalans exceed the tope in around 372 'kilos'. It is a very worrisome situation, since the quantity that exceed of the limit of this year will subtract of the limit of the next season. However, in spite of this excess, the Barça (and all the teams that live this) have a window: the rule '1 to 4' or '1 to 2'. The two rules that would allow the registration of Ferran in the staff.

LaLiga Allows the registration of new players, as long as they fulfil with the rule. The first rule ('1 to 4') establishes that the team can spend in the team of football 25% of what ingresan, that is to say, if they free 100 million euros (by sales with plusvalías or discounts salariales), will be able to use 25 'kilos' in the registration of a new footballer. However, when the player with which frees mass salarial supposes 5% of the total of the mass salarial, applies the rule '1 to 2', that allows to the club spend the half of what has freed ('case Griezmann' the past summer, that left profits of 20 millions).
