FC Barcelona is very annoyed. The Catalan club has ambitions for its summer transfer window, but it still has to deal with a very delicate financial situation. What handicaps it enormously in its projects. For example, the Culers dream of bringing back Lionel Messi. Except that even if the Argentine agrees to come back and cut his salary drastically, he won’t be able to be registered if nothing changes.
Ditto with the extensions of Sergio bosquets and Marcos Alonso. These deals have or are about to be finalized, but the conclusion remains the same: Barça must reduce its payroll by at least €150m. Ditto with the Gavi case. If he manages to slim down, Barça will be able to validate the contract of his young midfielder, otherwise, the latter will be available for 0€. You will understand, time is running out for the Blaugranas. And Sport announces that four players are affected by this sweeping sweep.
Barça must degrease
The first is Eric Garcia. Returning to the fold in 2021 from Manchester City, the 22-year-old central defender will not be retained, especially if Iñigo Martinez is recruited. In the midfield, while waiting to know the decision of Sergio Busquets, the designated candidate is again a young person: Pablo Torre. Aged 19, the former resident of Racing Santander has only played two La Liga matches this season. However, those two names aren’t exactly the biggest earners at the club.
Barça has therefore placed two players with louder names in its list. The first is Ansu Fati. The Barça crack was to ensure the succession of Lionel Messi. He had even taken over number 10, but his repeated injuries and his irregularity ended up pushing his leaders to consider leaving. Finally, Ferran Torres is the other star cited. Bought from Manchester City for €55m, the Spaniard has rarely given satisfaction (6 goals with the Culers since January 2022). Only problem, impossible for Barça currently to part with it with added value.
