Barcelona ready to pull another lever to reach financial fair play demands
According to a report published by Victor Malo, Barcelona are ready to pull another lever in the form of the sale of BarçaTV to reach financial fair play goals. They are, if reports are to be believed, at -€35 million right now, and no longer fall in the 1/1 rule of La Liga.
La Liga has filed them under the 3:1 rule, which means they are only allowed to spend €1 for every €3 they generate.
Which means that not only do Barcelona have almost no scope of signings new players in January, but also cannot promote the likes of Alejandro Balde, Gavi, and Inaki Pena to the first team.
Further, they also face trouble with the registration of Ronald Araujo’s new contract, and will be unable to renew Balde as was planned.
Currently, they have €35 million in excess salary, but they will receive a €5 million gap after the retirement of Gerard Pique. The legendary defender has also let go of his deferred salary.
Further, Barcelona also have a sponsorship agreement with Whitebit for €10 + 2 million, which also releases €5 million in salary gap.
