In light of Barcelona’s strained financial situation, an array of options are being considered to alleviate the monetary problems.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the latest formula being taken into consideration refers to the operation involving their former youth prospect, Mika Marmol.

After transferring the player last year to FC Andorra last summer, owned by the legendary Gerard Pique, the defender showcased a string of strong performances, with many Spanish teams now showing interest in the player.

The Blaugrana retained 50% of the centre-back’s rights and reserved a €1 million repurchase option. And they are now considering re-signing him by activating that clause before selling him off to newly-promoted La Liga side Las Palmas.

The Canary Islands outfit have entered the race for Marmol’s signature following the player’s upward trajectory, with manager Garcia Pimienta giving the green light to a move. But Barça now plan to take advantage of the situation.

Due to the signing of Pedri from Las Palmas in 2019, the Blaugrana have a debt worth around €5 million to settle with them.

Barcelona are considering buying back the center-back for €1 million, selling him to Las Palmas to settle a part of the debt that they owe the newly-promoted club.

Las Palmas manager Pimienta is familiar with Marmol, having worked with him at Barça Atletic. Owing to Pimienta’s experience with the player, he is keen on acquiring the left-footed centre-back’s services.

Barcelona can exploit this interest and reduce the financial obligations they must still face in regard to Pedri’s deal. However, the window for repurchase closes in July.

With departures hard to come by, creative solutions like these will surely take some burden off the hierarchy, as little as the impact may be.
