With the end of the season 2021-2022, in the FC Barcelona understood that it was necessary to give him a change to the team and fichar to new players so that the Barça was competitive again. Joan Laporta, new president of the club, spoke of an end of cycle and a revolution of the group blaugrana, but is a situation more than complicated that it does not depend only of his intentions and what he wishes to do.

The economic situation of the club, very, very, delicate, plays a very important paper in the decisions of the Barça and in what it can and not doing. As in the subject of the signings. Until the moment, has welcomed three players (Kun Agüero, Eric García and Emerson Royal): two like free agents (free), more the left side, by which the Barcelona group had to pay nine millions to the Betis to do with the whole of his rights.

Besides, they expect two movements that are to 'shot' and could be announced the next week: the one of Memphis Depay and Georgino Wijnaldum. The two Dutch will arrive, also, like free agents to reinforce the midfield and forward of the Barça, being players that the club carries pursuing from does a year, when Ronald Koeman turned into the Barcelona trainer.

The curious is that, of the five signings, any has been planned by the directive of the Barça and much less by Joan Laporta, remembering that Agüero is a traspaso mediático and that it is, more than everything, to give him a new reason to Leo Messi so that it remain in the Camp Nou further of the end of 30 June, when it wins his agreement. In the case of Eric García, is a signing that the club had tanteado from the past summer, but the price of the player (five or six million euros) was not asumible for the Barça in this moment.

With Depay and Wijnaldum, the situation is very similar. The Barcelona group has been treating of ficharlos because they were request expresses of Koeman, but neither could allow his signings neither wages, by what had to expect to that turned into free agents so that they arrive to the Camp Nou entirely free, something that will happen in the next days.

Finally, with Emerson Royal, went a project on a long-term basis of Ramón Plans, remembering that the Barcelona entity him fichó in 2019 from Brazil and yielded him by two seasons and averages to the Real Betis. Now, the culés decided to exert his purchase and have paid the nine million euros to the group verdiblanco to do with the whole of his rights and retain him in the club until the summer of2024, in principle.

The work of Laporta

Although the maximum Barcelona mandator neither his team of directors have not been those who have been at the top of these traspasos, that already were, of some way, 'fixed' from does time (to exception of the signing of Agüero), the reality is that Joan Laporta has a key paper in the negotiations that have allowed to close the agreements.

And it is that the lawyer has achieved that the wages are less high and that have more value the income by variables or aims, something that is key not to exceed the limit of the mass salarial.
