The bankruptcy stalks Barcelona and is that it must cut € 190M in salary mass in less than a week. The situation is dramatic and will affect all footballers, who will have to lower their salaries.
In addition to all this, and in order to avoid having to send the club to a bankruptcy, one of the options that has been put on the table would be the release of Leo Messi for this winter market. Although it is desired to continue counting on the Argentine and all the candidates for the Culén presidency want to renew him, the footballer’s salary is right now the one that is out of tune in the entity and without his file, a large part of the economic problems would be resolved.
The footballer ‘s salary clearly costs Barcelona €70 m per season after the current extension, so Messi’s farewell continues to gain momentum despite the attempt made by the previous board to keep him at the expense of the economic health of the club.
Dark days for Barcelona and its squad, who with this news have to face both their La Liga and Champions League commitments.
