The Blaugrana sports management is streamlining the ‘exit operation’ to lower the bulky wage bill and try to obtain the maximum possible benefit from the transfers

The culé club will try to find a team for all the players it does not have and, in addition, will listen to proposals from various assets with suitors in the market

In times of economic difficulties, any good news in the form of new income is more than welcome. The FC Barcelona is working on the sales of the second ‘pack’ of television rights and 49.9% of BLM for gain financial muscle and undertake the signings required by Xavi Hernández.

At the same time, the sports management also is streamlining the ‘exit operation’ with two fundamental objectives: to lower the bulky wage bill and to try to obtain the maximum possible benefit from the sales of soccer players.

With the departure of Francisco Trincao for 10 million euros to Sporting de Portugalthe Barça will already have entered €35 million. Dani Alves ended his contract and Clément Lenglet was loaned without a purchase option, but Philippe Coutinho (Aston Villa) y Ferran Jutglà (Bruges) did leave money to the Blaugrana coffers: 20 and five ‘kilos’, respectively. The culé entity, however, still has a lot of work ahead: the ‘lever’ of the transfers could reach, if all goes well, 150 million. Without a doubt, this scenario would be very positive for the present and the future of the club at all levels.

Let’s get out the calculator. Frenkie de Jong y Memphis Depay They don’t want to move from the Camp Nou and Xavi will count on them if they stay. In a benevolent economic context, Joan Laporta’s board of directors would not consider his marches either. However, the club would appreciate room for maneuver and could not refuse succulent offers for the Dutch. If any team offers around 80 and 20 million, respectively, for them, it will be difficult for the proposals not to translate into transfers. In the case of the former, the amount speaks for itself; The striker, for his part, ends his contract on June 30, 2023, so next summer he would be a free agent.

Todibo, the ‘forgotten’

Considering that, if they occur, the departures of Samuel Umtiti, Miralem Pjanic, Riqui Puig, Neto and Rey Manaj will be at zero cost, the other assets with which Barça could make money are Martin Braithwaite and Óscar Mingueza. Barça is asking, for the moment, eight ‘kilos’ for the Danish attacker and five for the youth squad. Although it is probable that the claims will end up being adjusted to the evolution of the market, ‘Jan’ already warned in Andreas Christensen’s presentation that will not let the competitors take advantage of the situation of apparent weakness of Barcelona.

The last footballer for which some money could come to Barcelona is Jean-Clair Todibo. The French central defender, currently at Nice, has had a good season in Ligue 1. Several teams are following in his footsteps. On the Côte d’Azur they will not sell it for less than 20 million and, it should be remembered, Barça will keep 20% of this operation.
