Laporta: “The club meets the requirements.” But we need to lower wage costs and sell another stake in Barça studios
II Barcelona risks starting the championship without having the reinforcements available in this transfer market session: Lewandowski, Koundé, Kessie, Christensen and Raphinha they were indeed ‘suspended’ by La Liga whoever had not entered the five contracts there would not have satisfied the blaugrana club economic requirements perform new operations. “We think we’re okay, we calculated well. We have already sent new documents and are awaiting a response,” President Laporta said.
For weeks, writes Sport, Barcelona have been in talks with La Liga about regularizing signings, but according to the Spanish newspaper’s sources, it will be necessary to lower them further level of wages (Frenkie de Jong and Depay join in the farewell) as well as moving on Sale of another 24.5% of Barça Studios, the company that creates the club’s multimedia content, having already sold 25% of it to Socios.com for €100 million. In the last few weeks, the Blaugrana company had activated an additional emergency lever and sold 15% of the TV rights for the next 25 years for almost 315 million.
In this regard, the signing campaign doesn’t stop as the deal with Chelsea seems close Markus Alonso: If De Jong lands in the Blues shirt, the Spanish winger will step into the deal. Should the Dutchman not go to Tuchel, Barça would buy the ex-Fiorentina for around 10 million euros.
