The bewilderment is total in Barcelona and the responses of those who populate some of the offices are charged with adjectives who invite despair. In the Board of Directors, some cracks, existing but barely perceptible a few weeks ago, but obvious once Joan Laporta made the decision not to renew Leo Messi in exchange for safeguarding the viability of the club and keeping the fright of The superliga. A decision that will mark a mandate that has just begun.
In Paris, already with amateurs stationed in front of the doors of the Prince Park, they continued on Monday, waiting for the arrival of Messi. The Argentine striker followed refugee in his house, this time with him intimate Luis Suárez. And both his father, Jorge, and his lawyers were responsible for reviewing both the labor contract and the image rights of the offer made by the PSG, encrypted by the newspaper L'équipe in 40 million nets per season, with two years Link more other optional.
Barcelona's concerns have more to do with the post-messi era. And among them, the financial balances to make for their four signings (Memphis Depay, Sergio Agüero, Eric García and Emerson Royal) are compatible with the Fair Play Financiero de Laliga. To date, none of them has been enrolled in the competition. According to sources of Barcelona, the idea is to start doing it from next Friday, August 13. That is, two days before Ronald Koeman's team was released at the Camp Nou before the Royal Society. It is played at the limit.
Porta, in the appearance in which he tried to argue the exit of Messi, said that the four signings could be enrolled. "According to our calculations," he said. And without saying when.
The main priority right now is to be able to register Memphis Depay, whose gross salary is around ten million euros. The immediate presence of the Dutch striker is presumed indispensable since he is called to carry a good part of the team's offensive weight with Antoine Griezmann. In addition, the former footballer of the Olympique de Lyon comes from a remarkable performance in front of Juventus on the Joan Gamper trophy.
Barcelona found that the inscription of Sergio Agüero could wait. The regulations of the Spanish Federation allows the footballers who have arrived with the letter of freedom to be enrolled outside the windowings (summer, concludes on August 31). Agüero, Depay and Eric García fulfill that requirement. In addition, the Kun, who suffered a tendoned lesion in the internal twin of the right leg, met that he will not be able to debut with the bluegrana team until the end of October or early November. This greatly expands the registration margin.
As for the Central Eric García, who comes to dispute both the Eurocopa and the Tokyo Olympic Games, it will not yet be available for the match against Real Society. While the lateral Emerson Royal, rescued from Betis and who played his first half hour as a bargain at the gamper, he should trust that the club of him will fit his registration before August 31.
Barcelona, in any case, trusts to clarify such a dark panorama during the last two weeks of August. After crossing Trancao, Junior Firpo and Todibo, and to fire Matheus Fernandes, he still has a lot to do. How to close the assignment to the Juventus of Miralem Pjanic and also save at least one's salary (about 14 million euros gross), but not pending amortization (45 million in total, 15 this season). Pjanic was whistled by the fondness in the gamper, although not with so much sañuel as Samuel Umtiti, whom he continues to imploring him to find an exit.
The salary reduction of the four new captains (Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué, Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba, who releases responsibility) continues also peepening despite the urgency of the situation. Barça is in shock.Updated Date: 09 August 2021, 20:18
