Barcelona are staring at a difficult summer ahead. The club are expected to go through a major overhaul, with even Xavi Hernandez announcing his desire to leave Camp Nou at the end of the season.

Xavi’s potential exit, coupled with an inflated salary mass might force Barcelona to sell a host of star players. Moreover, it will make the job more difficult for the Catalans to sign new players in the market.

Until the summer comes, Barcelona’s primary objective will be to return to the 1:1 rule, which will allow them to spend as much money as they make, as opposed to the 3:1 rule they are on right now.

Barcelona can return to 1:1 rule

According to Cadena SER, Barcelona are still in a position to return to the 1:1 rule despite the club’s ongoing financial hardship.

La Liga, in fact, believe Barça can redeem their prime economic status, particularly if the club can obtain the €100 million that was promised from the Libero deal.

To put this into context, Barcelona signed a deal with Libero last summer, offloading a 29.5% stake in Barça Vision for a fee that exceeded the €100 million mark.

The money was to be paid through various instalments by Libero, a German football fund. However, to this date, Barcelona have not received a single penny.

This has resulted in the Blaugrana seeking legal measures. So far, though, the club have not been able to yield a single penny, which has led Barcelona to find other sources of revenue.

President Joan Laporta and Treasurer Ferran Olive put in nearly €30 million of their own money as a ‘personal guarantee’ to register players when the money from Libero did not arrive timely for Barça Studios.

There is still time left for Barcelona to bring in the funds from Libero. But the club’s legal team, which is already embroiled in a battle with Nike, must work day and night to make that happen.
